No, but we get along fine. Mr. jduck likes his family, and I like his family, but he’s not that close with any of them.

Not super close but I do love the guy. He’s so nice! He always does “fix” it projects for me.

I wouldn’t say BFF, but we’ve had some great moments – for example, last Christmas when FI and I were visiting, and FIL got fairly drunk (normally I would have joined him but I was driving FI and myself back to my parents’ place that night) and spent about an hour arguing about racial profiling and the US policy toward the Muslim world, and he spent about the last twenty minutes I was there hugging me and offering me drinks and telling me how he loves me as another daughter even though we have these “fights.”

I’m really close to my FFIL – he’s just a genuinely great guy. I really do feel closer to my FILs than I do to my parents much of the time.

I was really close to my FIL, but he passed away last year.  He was like a friend to me.  I used to talk to him on the phone all the time and have long conversations with him.  He was so special!   I lost my dad four years ago, and I felt so lucky to have such a great relationship with my FIL. Too  bad that he didn’t get a chance to see us get married and have kids.  We always spoke about everything.  I truly considered him a friend.  Miss you Pop!

Not uber uber close, but that is just because we don’t always see eye to eye (he’s a traditional somewhat chauvinistic guy, while I am a banner waver for feminist rights & equality) but we do actually get along great and have lots in common despite that which we don’t share.

Yes!! 🙂 I love him! I even have nicknames for both my MIL and FIL. He’s so funny. We became like really close last year when FI was really sick, he spent nearly 8 weeks in the hospital and was on a ventitalor. Used to talk to him every night on the phone (Long distance relationship), not being able to do it was super hard for me. So FIL would call me EVERYDAY to see how I was doing, how was school, etc etc. I LOVE JJ 🙂
