Mine is pretty great. I like her a lot. She used to be a substitute teacher at my elementary school and she remembered me from way abck them we I started to date her son. She’s a lovely lady and I’m pretty darned happy to be family with her. Of course there are times when we miscommunicate or have differing opinions, but I can say the same (for sure) concerning my own mother.

My ex-husband’s mother was amazing too. His father and brother, however… another story.

Mine is AWESOME!!  I have always gotten along really well with her.  She’s a seamstress on the side and is doing all the alterations on my gown and is even making me a cathedral length veil with beading ALL the way around it!  She says it will be a good “winter project”.  She is even paying for the church, organist, and alcohol for the reception (as we have to provide our own).  I couldn’t love my future in-laws any more.  I’m a lucky girl!

My Mother-In-Law is a wonderfully sweet woman.  She’s always made me feel welcome in their family (even though I married her baby).  In fact, my husband says he thinks she gets more excited to see me than him.  I just think I’m less likely to walk in the house and steal her tv remote, and am willing to have a whole conversation with her about absolutely nothing. 🙂

My Mother-In-Law is pretty awesome. She has welcomed me from the get-go and has always invited me to all family events and has ALWAYS made me feel part of the family. When I was looking into nursing school (she is a Nurse Practioner) she made sure I had people to talk to and helped me make a decision on where to go. She texts me on tests days and wishes me luck and is overall very interested in my life. She was extremely helpful in wedding planning. I didn’t mind her taking on tasks that I was too busy to do. If it weren’t for her, there probably wouldn’t have been a wedding! :p I am very blessed 🙂

I adored my Future Mother-In-Law. Despite our 60 year age difference we shared a lot in common. So much so that I think Manfriend got a little freaked out at times!

Unfortunately she passed away suddenly in January, just as I felt I was really starting to get to know her. I think I cried the most of anyone at her funeral. She was the sweetest, lovliest, most welcoming lady. I now have her pearls which I wear with pride whenever I go out.

Future Father-In-Law also passed last year, but I never got the chance to meet him.

My Mother-In-Law is amazing. She helped with a lot of projects for the wedding and it just an all around amazing lady. I feel so blessed, espcially hearing and seeing first hand how some girls have all out wars with their MIL’s.

I also have great in-laws-to-be! I am really glad about that, because Fiance is an only child and so it matters a lot that we have a good relationship.

My Future Mother-In-Law is amazing! I was shocked to see how much alike we are.  I am so happy to become part of my FI’s family.  I’ve only been in one major relationship before, his mother hated me, and I was afraid of meeting my FI’s family because of this, I’m so glad I was wrong.  I can’t wait to make it official!

My Future Mother-In-Law is really great and sweet, his whole family is! My relationship with my mom is tumultuous, and Future Mother-In-Law is like the complete opposite of my mom, so it’s nice to have someone stable to rely on.

My Mother-In-Law is super nice. She has never caused a single second of drama since we’ve been together (more than I can say for all the rest of the parents lol), never had any opinions about the wedding, etc. She also flew all the way to Ohio for my wedding shower which was surprising and really nice of her. We don’t really see her much because she lives so far away (in over 5 years of dating I’ve only seen her 5 times!) but she is just always nice/positive/thoughtful/chill so I count myself very lucky in the Mother-In-Law dept.
