Just being curious here, do you get along with the FIL? I have to say that I LOVE my in laws… I’m like the daughter they never had. I get along really well with FI’s mom, she is my cake business partner as well which is great. His dad is a sweetheart, we can chat for hours and hours talking about everything and anything. I feel lucky to have such great in laws and wanted to find out about yours.

DH jokes that he’d totally be a mama’s boy if his dad wasn’t so awesome, and it’s true. I hit the IL jackpot. Not just my MIL/FIL but my BILs/SILs, DH’s aunts, our nephews…he’s asked me numerous times which family member of his is my favorite, and I’ve never been able to answer, because they are all fantastic people. They welcomed me with open arms. I’m much closer to them then I am to most of my family. I always come home from visiting them relaxed and recharged.

It’s nice to see other people actually getting along with their IL’s. A lot of Bees inheritied wretched mother in laws and I always feel bad for them.
My FIL’s are great. My FMIL and I are insanely close and I, too, feel like the daughter she never had. She loves the crap out of me and would do anything for us. My FFIL is a man of few words but I know he loves me. He’s still kind of a hardass but he’s done a complete 360 over the last 6 years. I definitely lucked out in the IL department.

@UpstateCait: I’m glad to see I’m not the only one with good IL. They’re just so happy that their oldest son is FINALLY getting married lol

Typically I would say how much I love both of them and how we are super close. Right now it is kind of a different story. I still really like them but were having one of those times where we are disagreeing with them currently soo…. It’s very frustrating at the moment.

Love them–FMIL is a shy, quiet little mouse. FFIL is a big bear with lots of opinions, just like my dad. He actually likes it when I agree or disagree with him, as long as I can back it up.

I have an okay relationship with my FMIL not great, but not bad. My relationship with my FSIL is much more strained. Things have gotten better over the years.

I love my IL’s. FI’s family is very similar to mine, so they’re easy to relate to. His whole family is great, and they love me too. It’s a huge relief because I hear horror stories, like everyone else, about IL’s.
My only issue, and it’s not even a big one is that, like my mom, FMIL can be a bit of a buttinski but since she is not my mother I can’t tell her to butt out. That’s the only thing though.

I get along with all of them except my FMIL. But she doesn’t know how much she drives me nuts. Because it is so much better to keep the peace then burn bridges with her. She think I adore her and I am okay with that.

Do I like/love them? Yes. Do they make me really mad sometimes? Absolutely. Kingy’s sister is SO sweet and we get along really well but she can be lazy, same with his mom except not lazy, neglectful. I love them but I think living with them for a few months really pointed out the flaws, like most roommates.

I love my ILs as well. We don’t talk to his mom, which is sad, but until she stops choosing alcohol over her family..its her loss. We lived with my FIL for 4 years, so I got really close to him. His FI is amazing, and I get along with all my SILs, nieces and nephews.When our families are together, you can’t tell where his ends and mine begins. I really couldn’t have married into a better family 🙂

In my in-laws eyes (partcularly mom, but siblings seem to be intent on ruining me too) I will never be good enough for their family. For mom, I am not pretty enough(yes, she told FI this), or educated enough, or cultured enough, or whatever. His siblings seem to spend an awful amount of time gossiping about me behind my back -Its inevetable that after a dinner at mom
s I will have done something offensive (I didnt eat my carrots once) and it will get back to FI. Oh, there was the time I had a cigar with FI and friends at a party with his brother -MOM found out, we get phone calls. SERIOUSLY!
The worst and most offensive thing done yet was when FI and I bought our house his mom gave HIM a house warming present & card. I was not included. When he asked her why she said she will never acknowldege me as important -and apparently without him I`d never have a job (uh, ok true I am employed by FI, but I have a masters degree and worked for YEARS before he came along Bitch)
Uh…I mean no, I don`t get along with the in laws. 😀

We get along pretty well. I love the whole family! Of course, we’re in the middle of some famly drama… so it’s been kind of sketchy for a few weeks. But I still love them all and I’m excited to be a part of their family!

No, but in my defense no one does.
