So, I just figured, lots of us don’t have perfect inlaws, and a lot of the time they are less than cordial, so here it goes!
My future MIL and future FIL are super controlling and try to control FI’s life and my life as well.
FBIL #1 is nice, and he and my FI get along well. The problem is he hates me for no reason, probably because FMIL said I was bossy when I suggested FI apply for a job, and FBIL #1 overheard it and confronted FI soon after over it. FBIL #1 loves FBIL #2’s FI, and it makes me feel really left out even though I was with FI way longer than FBIL # 2 and his FI have been together.
FBIL #2 is a nightmare. His FI is nice, but always will take her FI’s side even if he is being wrong.

FFIL is like Early Cyler (the dad from Squidbillies) and I am not kidding he is JUST like Early. It’s kinda funny, kinda sad. He’s an alcoholic and likes to piss people off. FMIL is somewhat of a doormat and I’m not used to women being like that. My mother is a go with the flow type of woman, but FMIL is the kind who thinks she’s going with the flow but she’s really hiding her head in the sand. They are also indiscreet when it comes to favoritism. I’ve liked them from the first day I met them but we’ve been going through rocky country ever since FI and I got engaged.

My SO’s mom is a bit of a hoarder, and it drives me crazy. I can’t talk to SO about it because he gets upset that she lives alone. We just got back from her home where she still had a crazy amount of PINE NEEDLES on the floor from her Christmas tree. Which means she hasn’t cleaned at all since Christmas. If she can’t even vaccuum the floor, imagine how dirty it all is! Plenty of hoarders are worse, I just wish she had more pride in her home.

- Wedding: January 2016 - Church in Shedd Oregon
I’m so glad you mae this thread because i’ve been feeling this way and idk if i’m being wrong about feeling this way and this is a perfect place to just post and let it out. So here it goes…today at Easter dinner over at my Fiance’s parents house his aunt (his moms sis) said lucky for them it’s traditional for the brides family to pay for the wedding. This hit a nerve because since we’ve announced our engagement i’ve been flooded with help (in more ways than financial) from my side of the family and absolutely nothing from his side. I also heard the grooms family throws the engagement party traditionaly (if we want to go that route…traditional) and we are actually throwing our own party with no help from them. I asked my fiance on our way home if it bothers him that his family doesn’t seem to care about the wedding and he just said “well, thats my family for you. If it was my sister getting married it would be a completely different situation.”
