what does the phrase ” The doors swings both ways”?

I heard about this phrase in the movie ” Sweet Home Alabama” where in Melanie is talking to her mother about them not visiting her in New York for Christmas. And her mother said something and she said this phrase.

Thanks in advance!!

    First of all, I love that movie.

    But anyway, she was saying that although she didn’t visit Melanie in New York, she couldn’t be blamed because Melanie never visited her in Alabama either.

    Swing Both Ways Meaning

    The word “door” in this phrase sort of means the same as what “door” meant in the phrase “When one door closes, a window opens.” It refers to opportunity, or possibilities. Means you can go both ways.

    I think in this context it probably means… “don’t complain about us not coming to visit you, because you could come and visit us as well!”

    Hope that makes sense.

    It is either the door swings both ways, or the doors swing both ways.

    If it’s the first, I guess it’s like the pendulum swings both ways. Don’t you?

    It basically means that what you can do to someone, they can do to you. Depends of course on context.

    It kind of means there isn’t just one option. There isn’t just one you can go, you can go another, or even come back the way you came.
