I adore my FMIL. She is a wonderful, fun, classy lady and I love spending time with her.

My mom passed away seven months ago today and my fiance’s mom passed away 6 years ago.  We both have step moms and I like both of them.  It hurts a little to see people on here complaining about how annoying their moms are or how they wish they would just leave them alone in regards to wedding stuff.  I would LOVE to have my mom nagging me about wedding stuff.

That being said, my future sister in law is insufferable.

sarahalthea.:  I adore my MIL. She’s very similar to me and she goes out of her way to avoid stepping on toes. She’s the best!

I love my FMIL. There have been a couple times where she has driven me a little crazy, but she always means well. If we have an issue, we discuss it and move on. My FI and I have been together almost 5 years and we have never had a real problem. Plus, FMIL and FFIL have been so accepting of my son from the very beginning (my son is from a previous marriage), they love him and treat him like their own grandchild. That makes me love them even more. 

I could never say any of that about my ex-MIL. She was a monster. I know first-hand how many issues can arise in a marriage if FMIL/MIL’s are a problem. I have sympathy for the bees struggling with theirs.

My FMIL and I have had issue in the past. We had a bad start and we are both very strong opinionated women so we have butted heads a couple of times.  There have been a few times I’ve had to ask her to back off a little from our lives.  FI has always stood up for me in terms of this.  

That said, most of the time I genuinely enjoy spending time with her, and the rest of FI’s family.  She has called me her daughter in law before we were even engaged and shows lots of affection towards me.  I went for a job interview recently which I had mentioned briefly to her about 2 weeks beforehand and she msgd me half an hour before my interview to wish me good luck.  I guess I just consider her as a genuine family member, can drive me nuts but love her all the same lol.

My FMIL is just amazing! She is always there for both of us and our children! Not only does she look after our babies but she has a disabled child herself who she looks after 24/7 . If there was an award for FMIL of the year, I would definitely nominate her. She’s just an all round amazing woman!

I absolutely love my FMIL to a point where I consider her one of my best friends. We are very similar when it comes to our humor and personalities and I always joke with FI that Frued would have a field day with him because he’s marrying someone so similar to his own mother.

i am not close with my mother and didn’t really have her growing up so I finally feel motherly love and while it’s amazing sometimes i feel like universe is being cruel because FMIL has cancer and now that I finally have a mother it’s uncertain how long we will have her here. all I can do is just cherish the time I have with her. We talk on the phone every day sometimes for over an hour just chatting.

I DO! I love my FMIL, she is absolutely the best. I have only met her once (she lives in a different country) but we email constantly and she is so fun and supportive. She’s a no-nonsense kind of lady and she has been super accepting of me when I had a lot of silly “strikes” against me (from another country, FI is going to stay in that country for me, I’m also 7 years older than him…). She is absolutely delightful. 

Also I really like my FI’s brother’s fiancee (she’s so fun!) and I like my brother’s fiancee as well. (we are totally all getting married this year ooops). I feel really lucky because I have friends who hate their SIL’s and MIL’s. I know it’s just the luck of the draw.

My FMIL is awesome, I really love her. I have only really met her once, and that was when we dropped the bomb on her and FFIL that we were getting married. We spent 3 weeks with them over Christmas and I felt like I was hanging out with one of my girlfriends. She’s super supportive of me and FI and is just really lovely. She lives in a different country with an 8 hour time difference, and my mom lives in a different country as well. I also hate seeing people bitch about their moms/MILs because I would kill to have at least one of mine to be in the country with me to help me plan.

sarahalthea:  I love my MIL! She can be a little overbearing and offers her opinion too much but she always has the best intentions:)
