    My FIL’s are great! I have really had only one issue about the wedding but it worked itself out! They are super funny (which I LOVE) and we bond over picking on FH 😉

    They like me…they just don’t want us getting married right now or anytime soon…and we are. (they believe one shouldn’t get married until your late 30s or 40s)

    Also, the mother is a bit manipulative, overbearing, controlling, etc…..extremely meddlesome.

    We do get along…and the parents are nice to my face….but behind my back they say negative things about us getting married…….

    So it’s not that they don’t like me…they do…they just don’t like the idea of marriage for their son right now, if you understand what I am saying. We also have moments where we don’t quite see eye-to-eye. They realize I have influence on his life, besides them now(he no longer does everything mommy and daddy say)

    I’ve only met my FMIL once. She was really nice and I think if she lived closer to us I could see me being close to her. We live relatively close to FFIL/FSMIL (3 hr drive) so we see them a few times/year. They’re always really nice to me (although it always kinda feels like they’re sucking up to me to gain favor with my FI)… but we are not close.

    I like my FFIL and FMIL but sometimes cant get annoyed with FMIL. She is very much of a control freak and there have been a lot of rough patches in the planning of this wedding! We actually had to have a “boundaries” talk because she was trying to take over everything. Everything is much better now but I wouldnt say we are close. I like them and they like me but I wouldnt call them without my FI being there!

    We get along great. They are incredibly fun to be around & have always treated me like a member of their family. I love when we get to see them (they are a few hours away)!

    I don’t think its anything I’ve done or not done (except for love their son very much!) that makes us get along so well..they are truly just wonderful people. I feel very lucky.

    I have a great relationship with my in-laws. I’ll call my FMIL, FSIL and FBIL to chat.

    FFIL is nice and he is my favorite, he atleast talks to me and treats me like i’m a person, however he is very controling and thinks he can do what ever he wants because he has money… (ie he went out and bought my fi a house because he wanted a place to store one of his boat trailers, without even consulting me in anything after we had already been together over 2.5 years and been living together) FMIL I am nice to but it is very hard, because I feel like she really doesn’t have a brain and that she doesn’t like me because I stick up for myself and work and am independent, unlike my FI’s sister and his brothers g/fs/ex wife. So she never includes me in anything and when I try to have a conversation it’s always very akward and no matter how much i try she always seems to forget that i exist. She has never even once called me to invite me to anything in the 4 years my fi and I have been together. So I don’t really hate my in-laws I just don’t really bother with trying to get them to like me anymore lol

    I absolutly love FI’s parents.  They are awesome and have really accepted me as another daughter.  It helps that FI is their favorite and I’m totally awesome.  😉

    They don’t like Fi’s brother’s girlfriend of 4 years and they don’t really try to hide it.

    FI’s dad’s brother and wife are similar to the stereotype of in laws.  FI’s cousin just got married to an awesome girl, but for whatever reason they don’t like her.  She’s not good enough for their son.  FI’s aunt wore an ivory blouse and black slacks to the wedding and didn’t show up to the rehearsal dinner.  WOW.  So glad I don’t have any of those issues.

    My FILs are great!  They are very nice, kind, generous and supportive.  But I can’t seem to get close to them… we see each other constantly but have a very sort of “surface” relationship if that makes sense.  But that’s sort of how my FI’s entire family is.  I actually think that is why everyone is his large extended family is still on speaking terms!  They don’t go too deep or get personal in any way.  It’s all just pleasantries and cordial conversation.  It kind of bums me out to be honest, but I guess it is better than having FILs that are overbearing or hard to get along with.
