After reading for nearly an hour about all the terrible inlaw experiences my fellow bees are having, I felt the need to say, “THANK GOD my Future In-Laws are awesome!”
I adore my FMIL! She is the sweetest and most supportive woman!
I love my FFIL! He is a quiet, gruff man, but has been so kind to me!
Neither my Future Mother-In-Law or Future Father-In-Law have ever made me feel like anything but another of their children!
Future Sister-In-Law (groom’s sister) is amazing! I love her to pieces and knew immediately that she would be one of my most beloved bridesmaids!!!
Future Brother-In-Law (groom’s brother in law) is really quiet, but we liked each other immediately and constantly joke and chit chat!
These two are already like the siblings I never had (I’m an only child) and I already love their 2 sons (and spoil them) like they’re my own nephews!
I am so thankful that I have been blessed with such wonderful FILs! Better yet, blessed with a wonderful future family!
I wish all of your bees having drama or hurt feelings or stress from your Future In-Laws patience and reconcilliation! I know it’s hard, as I have been married before and have had previous difficult inlaws! Please, if you have positive experiences in this area, SHARE!!! <3 ya fellow bees!!!

I love my inlaws too. Right now there’s tension over the guest list but overall they’re good people and they care about me and well… they raised an amazing son.

I genuinely love my Future In-Laws. Since, I have known and dated their son since I was 16, they practically helped raise me. From day 1 I was just one of the “kids” who they tirelessly fed, drove around, and loved. Sure, my Future In-Laws annoys me at times, but so do my own family. I couldn’t have asked for any better people. In fact, I recently nominated (she won) her for our local “Marvelous Women” contest!

@Coffee cup: I am also dealing with guest list tension. My fiance and I want a small wedding with just immediate family and close friends, but his mom is pushing to invite her church and co-workers. Stressing me to the max, but it’ll work out…

My Future In-Laws are the best!!! Since my parents died almost 20 years ago, it is super cool to be someone’s kid again. They call me their daughter already and I call them Mama and Papa.They give me birthday and Christmas money too. Sweet!

Everyone but my Future Mother-In-Law is really lovely, and my Future Sister-In-Law is my one and only bridesmaid. It’s not that my Future Mother-In-Law is evil or anything – but she can be difficult, stubborn, sneaky and crazily rude sometimes, and my Future Father-In-Law is a sexist pig. But that’s just his time and I think that’s just a Future Mother-In-Law thing? I’m learning to ignore it, and understand that she is the way she is because she hasn’t worked for over 20 years so must be bored out of her little head.
After being through what I have, and reading about fellow brides-to-bees (see what I did there?!) experiences, I really really hope I am never that type of Mother-In-Law.

@goldie.girl: I do love my Future In-Laws, and I’ve gotten along great with them since day 1. I am totally comfortable around them. Unfortunately wedding planning has been our ‘bump in the road’ and Future Mother-In-Law is really driving me crazy. I wish she would butt out. I’m easily frustrated and upset by her, I’m sure I have posted many times about how annoying she has been.
But when FH isn’t around, I talk to them on the phone, go to their house, eat with them etc.
ETA: I see them with FH too, I was just saying that I’m comfortable with them with or without FH.
