My husband and I have been married almost a year. His mom lives about an hour away. He tries to visit about once a month (he travels for work a lot).
I really do not enjoy going to visit (I like my mother in law- its just that we have zero in common and she generally has nothing to say) and struggle to go each time he visits. I basically try to go every other visit but I am now starting to feel guilty…..
How often do you see your in laws?
How often does your spouse visit his parent/parents without you???

FI parents live 45 mins from us and I haven’t seen his mom since October. He saw her at Christmas and last month while I was working. We usually have dinner with his dad once a month or so.

I LOVE my future in-laws so I try to stop by every time I’m in town with FI.

All. The.Time. They’re about 25 minutes away so either were down there or my father in law stops up to help us with something. And even if they drive me crazy sometimes I do love that we can see each other often.

Well we go to the same church as my parents and his parents. So we see them at least twice every week. As far as outside of church we have them over for dinner or visa versa once a month. Same with my parents.

californiabride2013: My parents live 12 hours away while my in laws are 40 mins away so naturally we see them more. My dh actually works with them so he sees them a lot. Often i will see them twice a month at least. Mostly we go there sometimes they come us to, this is likely to happen more once we buy our own place (we are in the process). There was a period of time when I didn’t see them for 3 months but lately I see them a lot. Last month we visited/they visited 3 or 4 times. I go see them by myself even when my dh is away for work…
He seldom goes without me, I never see my parents without him due to the distance although because he sometimes goes that way for work he does see my parents without me.
Have a chat with him, see if it comes up with his mom. When we hadn’t visited in 3 months we got a call to ask when they would see us… If she is ok with seeing you less often I wouldn’t stress

We live only 5 mins from FI’s parents. His dad comes over on average about twice a week. We go to their place about once a week to see his mum and sister.
We are about 10 mins from my mum and we see her a lot less frequently – about once or twice a month. We see my dad about once every couple of months.
So we see FI’s family a lot more than mine but he is a major daddy’s boy lol

californiabride2013: DH’s parents live ten minutes away and we usually see them once, sometimes twice every week. We’re all very close though, and I see them as my adoptive parents lol. We enjoy spending time together.

FI’s parents live on the other side of the country (north of seattle, washington) while we’re in the boston area, living with my parents. FI and i just spent two weeks with his family in mid-march. we won’t see them again until, at the very earliest, august. we’re hoping to be able to attend a family wedding in august and see them then. if not in august, then we will be seeing them for our wedding in october.

Once or twice a month on avg. They are only 20 mins away but he’s in retail so he’s rarely off when the rest of us are.

OH’s Mum lives about a 5 minute drive and so does his grandparents so we see them at least once a week. I think I get on with his family, I am a little quiet but I always am in groups!
We see my Mum about once or twice a month and that’s because she lives 1 hours bus ride away (including switching buses) and she works weekends which are the days we have off.

We live in different states, so it ends up being just a few times a year

californiabride2013: 1 – 3 times a year. They live about 3000km away. I don’t feel terrible about that. 🙂

Waaaay too much! His family lives in town, so just about every holiday, and at everyone’s birthdays, I have to see them! Then, they try to take up even more of our time with things like a super bowl party, Ohio State vs. Michigan football game…it’s so incredibly annoying. It’s like a minimum of once or twice a month. And if I don’t want to go to some things, it’s fine, but my fiance goes to every single thing he’s invited to. I can’t stand it.

californiabride2013: My inlaws live in a different country, so we try to visit two times a year (My FI’s birthday in July, and usually late November to do early Xmas). With the weddings(3 family weddings) and everything this year, we’ll see them 4 times this year.
