I’m watching Say Yes to the Dress (yes wedding show and wedding site dbl dose while my SO works late hahahah), and this poor girl has a terrible FMIL! I was thinking how lucky I am that I like SO’s mom! Was wondering which is more common, my situation or this bride on TV’s (lol). So how does your Future Mother-In-Law rate?

I have the BEST Mother-In-Law ever! Shes amazing and has been so supportive of Darling Husband and I throughout our entire relationship. I have an amazing new family now and consider myself truly blessed because I have read about some bees with not so good inlaws:(

9. She used to be a 10, but I docked her a point. After the baby, she has been a major offender of giving unwanted advice lol. I know she means well, but GAH!!

My future mother in law is so amazing. Everyone who meets her loves her and she is the sweetest person in the world. My fiance always says that she is friends with more people he graduated with than he is. She is so generous and supportive too… I could gush about her forever but I am truly lucky.

Mine’s overbearing, guilt tripping and manipulative. But it seems to come in waves. Somedays I’m like “OH SHES CHANGED” and then the next day is like “pffffftttt… jk!!”

@Cady: haha, I’m sorry but that’s too funny 🙂 I’m sure it’s out of love, but that must be Frustrating.
My Future Mother-In-Law is awesome! It took me awhile to warm up to her (it just takes me awhile to warm up to anyone), but we’re much closer now and she’s been super involved in the wedding planning. I love that we can talk about all kinds of stuff like friends, and not just about Fiance. we’ve said I love you to each other, and I mean it. She’s great!

She’s hilarious and I love her. Unfortunately she is up there in age which limits our interactions a bit and she has no interest in weddings (blessing in disguise?!). She can be nudgy and inquisitive but she’s overall pretty good in my book.

My Future Mother-In-Law is amazing and great. Every time we stop over she is so helpful and stills me for some girl time with wine before we get serious on any planning. I didnt think she would be this great but she some how manages it. I love my own mother but she is definitely nothing like my Future Mother-In-Law, they are complete opposites.

I must say, my husband has the best mother-in-law ever. I’m totally unbiased, too. Obviously.
Seriously, though. She is incredibly supportive and happy and enthusiastic and honest and open and kind and generous and just totally awesome. Luckiest son-in-law, ever.

@Jw1724: my mil can be like that too. i find her to be very passive aggresive. i have learned to not put up with her crap, stand up to her and she stops dead in her tracks. i don’t think anyone has ever challenged her before.
don’t get me wrong, she can be very nice at times and very generous. she loves my son, which is nice, as her own grandson (mind you, he is 28) but she adores him. i think she just has a hard time dealing with women b/c she totally favours men.

@chillinchillin: I said a “9” because I’ve only met her once but she seems really nice in general. She lives far away (so likelihood of issues are rare), seems to like me, and is really nice to my SO.. so I don’t think I can ask for much more. This would be my SO’s second marriage, though, and she didn’t like wife #1… so I think that since she seems to like me so far, things are looking good. She’s also way older (like over 60) so she is more like a grandmother to me than anything.

@chillinchillin: Future Mother-In-Law is pretty wonderful. She accepted me into the family very early on, and based on what Fiance said alone, encouraged him to not let me go lol. She has been very helpful with the wedding, and in general life. She is kind, funny, and enjoyable to be around. I feel lucky to have her as my Future Mother-In-Law 🙂
She is pushy when it comes to grandkids (more specifically, wanting more) and often makes comments about what we’ll name our kids, or how we should start trying soon because Fiance is getting up there in age. The problem is – she is ignoring the fact that we have decided not to have kids : And I’m tired of looking like an a-hole when I remind her of it.
