So, I keep seeing posts with not so great mother in laws, so I want to hear about about some GREAT ones! I have a WONDERFUL future mother in law. I’m marrying her only child, and she tells people that she’s getting a daughter without going through all thr labor pains. She’s helped plan everything, and I can talk to her about anything. Does anyone else have a TERRIFIC mother in law?

TiaMP: You’re very lucky 🙁
I’ll walk away now since this is supposed to be a positive thread. 🙂

Mine offered me her veil, and I was so touched. She has her moments, but she loves us and has welcomed me into her family.

I divorced her son so I call her my outlaw, but she is the greatest MIL that anyone could want.

Yes, FMIL and I are very much alike, but we do get along and she has even offered me the necklace she wore on her wedding day for my wedding day. She has a daughter who will be getting married a few months before me and she wanted us to each wear the necklace on our wedding days.
She’s kind, but opinionated and also extremely generous.

My FMIL is amazing. She is one of the sweetest, most caring and upbeat people I’ve ever met. She welcomed me wholeheartedly right from the start. I’ve never felt like a DIL, but always like a daughter.

I love these types of threads! I am fortunate enough to have amazing future in-laws and I loved them since the 1st time I met them. They have always been so welcoming and supportive of me, and are just genuinely nice and caring people.
They live in Maine and we live in Maryland, so it’s a shame that we don’t live closer to one another. FMIL only has sons, so I’ve involved her in my wedding planning as much as I can. She’ll pin stuff on my Pinterest for me, send emails, and we’ll chat over Skype about wedding stuff. She’s great!

My future mother-in-law is great. She has three daughters and treats me like a fourth. I don’t see her as often as I’d like because we live quite far from her and her husband, but I can’t imagine ever having anything but a great relationship with her. I feel very lucky.

TiaMP: I can totally reference my ex boyfriend’s mom here. And his dad and sister! Unfortunately, HE was the problem lol! His family got along so well with my family, even our grandparents! Holidays were always all together, our mothers would hand out independent of us and since we were young and living at home, being around each others families was always a pleasure.

TiaMP: YES YES YES! I love my MIL. She is great. She actually has referred to me as her DIL even before we got married because she forgot we weren’t married yet (that’s how long we have been together LoL) She said she was on the phone with her friend and she mentioned me and her friend said “wait, they got married?!” and my MIL was like oh, no! And had to explain bc she didn’t want her BFF to feel there was a wedding and wasn’t invited! We had a good laugh about that.
My MIL is so far from a nightmare. Acutally all my inlaws are awesome. I lucked out because I am very big on family. My own family used to be aweomse, but there have been 2 deaths in the family that tore the family apart. So to have a family again has filled that void in my life.

I LOVE my mother in law!! I love my husbands whole family and I feel so lucky to be an official part of their family now. In fact, I think they love me a little bit more than they do my husband (; Which is fine because I’m pretty sure my family loves him more than they do me! They adore him.

FMIL is very nice, drama-free, and has a good attitude about life. She also recently received a top volunteer award, which I think is totally awesome.

TiaMP: Same situation here 🙂 My husband is an only child and I absolutely adore my MIL. We get along great and she has the biggest heart.

My FMIL is fantastic!! She is supportive and also took my son in like her own grandchild so I love her dearly for that. My ex-MIL was AWFUL. I want to keep it positive so I’ll leave it at that.
