So I completelly and totally love my FI but I can;t stand his family? And I realized it after we got engaged, before they were just plain annoying, now that I think about the fact that I’m gonna be a part of their family I want to cringe
Is anyone else having the same issues ?

LOL, I have some comments, but I’ve identified myself quite a bit in previous posts. Let’s jut say my brother-in-law is amazing at figuring out which buttons to push to make people angry… 🙂

My situation is kind of similar. For the most part I actually really like my in-laws. My DH’s mom is amazing. His sisters are pretty awesome too. But his step dad is awful. I really really don’t like the guy. He is your typical, stick shoved up his ass kind of guy. Grrrr. He is rude and worst of all, I have to work with the guy. The other day I was talking on the phone really quick with my mom who had just been rushed to the hospital and was in the ER because of a blood clot. I don’t just sit at work and gab on the phone normally, but this was a big deal. So he walks into my office and gives me this look like, ‘get the hell off the phone.’ So I told my mom I would call her back. I quickly explained the situation to my FIL, and then he just looks at me and starts demanding answers to this work problem he was having. Ummmm what???? He didn’t even ask about my mom or anything. And he has met her before. I mean, we are technically family. Ugh. What a jerk.
Sorry just had to get that off my chest. LOL. I was really irritated. haha! Soooo I definitely understand your pain!

Girl, you have no idea !
I keep Pepto and whiskey in my desk at work and do you know they taste pretty good mixed together? lol
I’ve heard the saying “People of different cultural backgrounds will have difficulties if they marry” but I had no idea why that was true until now !
Do I blame our different backgrounds? Or are his family just plain yucky? A bit of both I think.
I’m blessed though because hubby listens patiently when I tell him they hurt me and has tried to intervene and promises to protect me from now on, but I STILL can’t stand them.
The idea of spending the holidays with them seriously makes me want to dress like santa and hide in the local mall until Christmas is over !
So I hear ya and I’m with ya !
ETA “CHEERS” !

I had problems with mine the first 4 years, we’ve since moved 700 miles away and I’ve had very few issues with them (besides wanting to visit and bring guests to stay with us at our 848 sq foot condo in the dead of winter. Did I mention we have three cats and 2 of the guests have allergies?).
I’ve learned if you’re having problems the fault lies in your SO. They should be handling these situations. Alot of my problems were caused by my husband not stepping up to the plate and telling his parents how it was. Instead, he would passively listen to what they had to say and they decided his silence meant he agreed with them. When he got more vocal and stood up for us they backed off. Very few issues have arisen since.
