    I get along just fine with Fi’s sisters (and whole family for that matter) but I wouldn’t say we are “friends”…  His family lives 5 hours away though so it might be different if they lived closer.

    I think if you want to reach out and talk to her and become friends then by all means go for it.  I wouldn’t think it was weird if one of FI’s sisters called me to chat, especially if we were both planning weddings.

    Not even a little bit.  That isn’t even an option on your poll.  I am not and don’t want to be.  We are estranged from our families happily (I mean- by choice, but I WISH it was different 😉

    She’s nice, but we’re really different. I’m looking forward to knowing her better, but I know Fiance won’t be disappointed if we aren’t best friends.

    if FH had sisters I’m sure i would be friends with them…he only has two brothers….i’m friends with his younger brother, tho not like friends who hang out on a regular basis though….but they live close enough to where we see/hang with them at least twice a month if not more……

    his younger brother has a fiance whom i made friends with as well…so do FH’s sister-in-law count??

    I love my Future Sister-In-Law – she is Mrs. Magnolia!  Very lucky to be marrying into a wonderful family and getting all the help/advice from a former Bee!

    You know I think these kind of relationships are hard.. and obviously different for everyone. I’m not close to my FI’s younger (and only) sister but I would say we respect each other and are amicable. I’ve reached out to her several times when I felt like she may have needed some guidance or big sis advice but she’s never confided in me. I probably shouldn’t take it personally but I do sometimes and it’s hard. I think of her as my sister almost but I don’t think the feeling is mutual. Not sure what to do now because FI’s sister is struggling and in that place where she’s graduated from HS but doesn’t realliy want to go to college and is out partying? :/

    I adore my FSILs. One is actually a BMs for our wedding too! 🙂

    My Fiance also has three sisters, and one of his is also getting married this year, lives 2 hours away, and we’re not that close. It is kind of weird. She is kind of weird about the wedding and her parents in general (kind of immature), and she doesn’t really tell us about her plans.

    However, his youngest sister and I practically BFFs. We are as close as real sisters. His eldest sister and I get along pretty well, too, though she lives out of state. These two are going to be bridesmaids in my wedding. The other one will do a reading.

    I wouldn’t let it stress you out. As long as you guys don’t actively dislike each other, I wouldn’t worry about. Trying to force a friendship might only make it more awkward.

    I really like my FI’s two sisters. I wouldn’t say we’re “the best of friends”, we’re not THAT close, but we get along really well. My FI’s oldest sister is also planning a wedding and it’s really fun to chat with her about our plans!

    My SIL is 4 years younger and in a completely different place.  Right now, we bond over rolling our eyes and giggling when Father-In-Law does something annoying.

    We have become better friends over the years, but aren’t really “best friends.” I feel that we will definitely get closer as the years go on 🙂 We’ve decided to include our siblings in the bridal party (my brother is in his and his sisters are in mine) so I think that’ll be a really neat bonding experience in a lot of ways. They are great girls.

    I also have three SIL’s. Well technically 6 if you count the step in laws. lol. But I am really close with his sister who is my same age. We hang out with her and her husband a lot since we are all right around the same age. They are a lot of fun. I am not really close to other two. The one is only about two years younger than me, but she is super religious and I’m not so we just don’t really have a lot in common. And the other sister is only 14. The step SIL’s are all way older than us so we just see each other at family gatherings and that is about it. I really enjoy being friends wtih his one sister though. I definitely encourage family bonding if you are up for it! I know some in laws don’t really get along. But it is definitely not a bad idea to form a relationship with his sisters. Not only will you get a great hubby out of getting married, but you might also make new friends! lol (cheesy I know! hahaha)
