Its along story and I will not bore you with the details. The FH has three sisters also that live more than an hour away. They are a very close family, but I always felt that I was the outsider. No one ever called me, and I was always “and family” on cards. FH and I got legally married last year after the death of his ex forced our wedding out a year. Immediately after that they started calling me just to chat, or find out about the wedding. It was a complete 180. When we went down for the holidays, I really felt welcome. We also have had several family weddings in the last few months, and I have always been treated like all the aunts.
Moral of the story: there is always hope they will come around.

I wish we were friends, but we really aren’t. It’s not that we don’t like each other. Part of the problem is me, I’m rather anti-social and probably hard to get to know. It just takes me a long time to warm up to people…even if I like them — and I do like her. The fact that she lives six hours away and we only see each other on holidays doesn’t help.
I’m hoping things will change with time. I really would love to have a sister close to my own age.

Fiance has one sister. She’s the baby of the family, 3 years younger than me and VERY shy. I hope to become closer in the future, but as of now, I don’t think she has any interest in getting to be friends with me! Or maybe she does, but doesn’t know how to. It’s hard to say. Future Mother-In-Law did say that she hopes we get closer when we all go on a family holiday this summer.

Fiance has one sister and I love her, she’s one of my BMs! She has 2 small children so she’s busy a lot of the time but we hang out with she and her husband whenever we can!

We arent best friends, but we are friends. We all live in different states so we see eachother a few times a year. But we do chat on the phone and things like that. We are close in age and all in similar places in our lives, so it makes it a little easier to get along.
If you want a closer relationship, definetly reach out to them. Email and facebook make it sooo much easier to chat and keep in touch, if you arent really a phone person (like myself!). They will probably be happy to hear from you 🙂

He has two brothers and no sisters. I get along with all of his girl cousins and pretty much everyone he’s related to, so I think if he did have a sister we’d get along as well. The problem with him only having brothers is THEIR future wives. One has a fiancee, who I’ve written about (on WB) in the past.. and the other one doesn’t have a girlfriend at the moment.. So I’m hoping he’ll date/marry someone I can be BFFs with! lol

Future Sister-In-Law and I do not get along. I really wish that it was different and that we could be friends but I don’t think she wants to.
I am very jealous of those of you whou are close to your FSIL’s.

I would justlet it go if you have already reached out to her and no responses. If you haven’t, try to. And then if it doesn’t go anywhere, let it go. I really believe SHE should welcome YOU to the family, but if she doesn’t then why not try. But don’t be too disappointed if you don’t have a special relationship early on.

Oh and DH has 3 sisters, and 3 SILs. I’m close with 1 SIL, and 2 sisters. You can’t be close with everyone sometimes. All you can do is try.

I have three future sister-in-laws. I probably talk/text them more often then my fiance does. We don’t get to hang out often since we are about an hour and a half away and due to schedules, but we talk a lot. They are all going to be a bridesmaid in my wedding

My fiance has one sister and I really like her. But she’s ten years younger than me (12 years younger than him) and lives 3,000 miles away, so while we get along well when we’re together, I wouldn’t really say we’re friends. I feel like we probably will be fairly close in the future (hopefully!), but it’s going to take some time.

I get along fine, but believe in keeping a safe distance. she will never be a BFF, after all blood will ALWAYS be thicker than water!!

I didn’t see an option for “she thinks I’m the slime sucking scum of the earth.”
