    We are the best of friends

    We only see each other at family gatherings

    We are not close right now but I'm hoping we will become close

    I don't like her!

    My DH doesn’t have any sisters, thank the lord!!! I’ve actually never dated a guy with sisters my whole life which is the strangest thing.

    On the flipside, my sister doesn’t like our brothers wife (our SIL) at all. She’s done a lot of things to snub us and while I don’t really give a hoot my sister openly doesn’t like her.

    I used to be really close to DH’s younger sister (she’s the one that introduced us/set us up), but life got in the way and our phone calls are few & far inbetween…and we live about 12 hours apart.  I’m on a good term with DH other sister, but we’re not the type to call eachother chat.  Maybe an occassional email here and there, but that’s about it.

    I am great friends with one of my SILs; hell, I like her better than my real sisters!  I hardly ever (like once or twice a year) talk to my other SIL.  We just don’t have anything in common.

    I can’t stand my soon to be sister in-law she is 17 and has been in and out of juvie and now jail for the past 5 years ( i only met my fh 5 years ago and that was right after she went nuts). I did everything to be nice to her and she acts like she likes me but calles me every name underthe son behind my back. She has tryed breaking me and my fh up many times even setting him up by saying she wanted to hang and he would show up and his ex was their. She also had her friends call me saying my fh was cheating on me with them ( one time he was sitting right next to me and they said he was at their house lol) she is bipolar but her problem is not that because we have seen she plans most this stuff and she thinks the world is hers to control. She even threw a candle at my son who was 6 months old at the time. i don’t know how to handle her any more. i don’t want her at my wedding but not my choice

    We get along. We have know each other for a while, even before I started dating Mr. Dear, but we aren’t compatible enough to ever be BFF.

    My Fiance is the youngest of nine… I haven’t even met all the sisters. I’ve only met two and I met them at family gatherings and so now we are FB “friends”. Only one of them, though, is coming to the wedding (as per my FI’s instructions on invites). My FI’s siblings aren’t all close and live across the country.

    I get along with my FI’s sister. He lives out of town with her DH and children. When they come here to visit for the summer, we all hang out and we have fun, and the children love each other.  We don’t talk on the phone or text each other all the time or anything like that. All in all, we’re cool and we like each other. That’s enough for me 🙂

    FI’s sister is awesome.  She lives on the west coast and we’re in the midwest so I rarely get to see her, but when she’s in town I love hanging out with her.  Currently I don’t call her or e-mail her for the heck of it, but I’m hoping that we’ll eventually get close enough to do that.

    FI’s sister is just four months younger than me and she’s a sweetheart. We’re both very silly/dorky and we embrace and encourage each other’s dorkiness! I loves her.

    I used to long for a SIL, all the guys I had dated before DH never had any sisters and I was envious of others who had SIL’s. HOWEVER, now that I have one, I want to give her back to whever the heck she came from!

    My SIL and I started off having a good relationship even though there was 8 hour distance between us. However, when we got engaged, she was fine until my Mother-In-Law got a hold of her, and now she is a mini me of my crazy Mother-In-Law.

    It’s a shame because I do think if my Mother-In-Law didn’t destroy relationships then I could have been good friends with my SIL. At this point and time DH and I are estranged from his mother and sister, there is just too much toxic drama that comes with them.

    I voted “we only see each other at family gatherings” because my FI’s sister is 7 years old.  His mother had him at 17 (FI is 22) and his parents divorced shortly after.  His mom eventually remarried and they had a child together.  While I’d love to be friends with her, I don’t think we’d have much in common 😉  We do get along though.  She told Fiance that if he doesn’t want to marry me he can just say no at our wedding.  Cutie pie.

    My Future Sister-In-Law is really scary. So I am nice to her. Lol. 

    But really, she is the most temperamental, moody, self-righteous woman I have ever met. BUT, she can also be the life of the party. 

    She is like all of the most bombastic, loud, irrational, funny parts of my Fiance way exaggerated. But with none of the cuddly, lovey, sweet, caring, understanding parts.

    The Fiance and Future Sister-In-Law fight like cats and dogs. Ugh. But they love each-other. They are both Irish and have red hair, so tempers run naturally high around here.

    @SoontobeMrsA:

    Sorry – but I just busted up because that’s pretty much what I think my FI’s sister thinks of me; she hasn’t ever met me, and stopped speaking to Fiance when we began dating. She RSVPd no to the wedding, and if it didn’t hurt Fiance so I would think it was just hysterical, that this woman (she is a grown woman, 50 years old at least) is hating me, someone she’s never met. Don’t even know why; probably jealous her brother’s happy, or maybe just nuts. Again, not laughing at you, don’t take it the wrong way, just totally related.

    I voted “We only see each other at family gatherings”, but really I’m somewhere in between that and “We are the best of friends”. SO lives with his parents, and his sister (4 years younger than me) lives there too. Whenever I stop by to see him, I end up spending some time chatting with her in her room. We also plan to do things just the two of us about twice a year, and I enjoy hanging out with her, but we aren’t best friends.

    I’m good friends with my FI’s younger sister. I’m not as close with his older sister, but I hope to get to know her better.
