I have to agree with you D.Marie. It’s all about making the effort. I LOVE my FMIL, and even though there are things we don’t agree on, we both focus on our mutual things.
We both love shopping for bargains together so we do a girls day out there and stop off at a cute tea shop in our town afterwards for lunch.
She has also told me many times that she loves that I truly "get" her son….so I do talk up things my guy & I do together that he loves, like motorcycles, woodwork, and she laughs at me but has told my guy that she appreciates how well I take care of him. I do his laundry, I do most of the grocery shopping and always buy his preferred snacks. I guess it’s just the thought that he’s well taken care of and appreciated, which I’m sure any mom can relate to. 🙂

happilywaiting- I think what you talked about is one area many MILs and DILs don’t get along. So many MILs seem to think that when you get engaged, you agree to take over "mom" duties for your fiance. Ugh…I like to do nice things for my fiance and baby him once and a while, but jeez. I will not serve every meal, do all the laundry, ect.He’s a grownup.

I get along with my future MIL btw…this is just one thing I’ve noticed in many relationships. This really isn’t advice…just a commentary on one aspect of the tricky MIL-DIL relationship.

Bamboo – she has never actually taken over those things for him….lol…I am just a psycho about laundry….my guy is one of the oldest of 10 children….and I’m an only child. So we have some differences….BUT I am a bit obsessive with clean dishes, and clean laundry…where as he is just happy to have clean jeans to wear to work in the morning…..we’re accidentally happy that way. He loves to cook, I freak out over raw meat….it’s a nice balance,
