(Closed) Are you friends with your fiance’s sister(s)?

  • poll: Are you friends with your fiance's sisters?

    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!

    There isn’t really an option in the poll for me. Future Sister-In-Law and I are friends, we tell each other things, but nothing super personal unless it’s about family. We get along and hang out (or at least we did when we lived closer) often, but I wouldn’t consider her one of my “best” friends.

    Future Sister-In-Law is 6 years younger than I am and we have completely different personalities. Our conversations depend on if she has taken her meds/in a good mood. Otherwise, I steer clear of trying to talk to her. We just don’t mesh well, but I am hopeful that once she matures a little bit, we can become friends.

    Future Sister-In-Law lives several plane ride hours away, and we only see each other for a few hours when she’s in town and have seen each other maybe… 4 times total since we started dating.  We don’t call or email each other, but we’re friendly when we’re together.  She’s also a stay at home mom of two young girls, which is awesome, but means I dont relate to her at all in that aspect.  I’m an only child and would really like to be closer to her, but I just don’t see it happening.

    Fiance wants her to be in my Wedding Party… which is kind of killing me a little.  I’ll do it for him, but I dont understand why he refuses to have her on his side.  I’m not in the “family immediately equals bridal party” camp.  Le sigh.

    Some where in the middle. Not the best of friends, but I hope that’ll be the case soon. I see her more than just at family functions, just not all the time. She’s awesome and has the same name as me ๐Ÿ™‚

    Umm – I chose “best of friends” even though it’s somewhere in the middle. Fiance doesn’t have any sisters, two brothers. I get along with one brother (although DON’T get me started on the other one of them). The brother I like is married, and I ADORE her! So technically she IS my Future Sister-In-Law, through marriage ๐Ÿ˜‰ we get along like bread and butter!

     

    ETA – the brother I’m not the biggest fan of is also married. If we ever have a thread about who has the craziest SIL drama, someone let me know so I can start writing my essay!! ๐Ÿ˜› that chick is NUTSO!

    We are friends- I worked with her before I met my fiance.

    We only see each other at family gatherings. We generally get along when we are together (I do think she has some strange ideas, and she thinks I am too uptight I think), but we get along for the most part. We aren’t overly friendly though, and I am comfortable with our relationship as it is.

    My husband has one older (10 years older than him, 15 years older than me) sister that I talk to the most of anyone. We live in separate states and don’t see each other very often.

    He has a stepsister right around his age, but we hardly have any contact with them. We’re facebook friends, though ๐Ÿ˜›

    And then he has a half sister who was given up for adoption who we’ve never met, but just connected with on facebook.

    I wish I was closer to his family in genral, though…

    We live on opposite sides of the country, so we’re not exactly besties, but we do email each other (with and without FH in the conversation) and we get along well when we do see each other. She’s not in the bridal party, but we’re doing Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man only anyway.

    I like mine, we talk and are becoming friends. She has good ideas about the wedding and is a bridesmaid. I need the support from his side seeing as how my side doesn’t really care.

    my hubby’s sister is kind of a mess. she’s really self-involved and irresponsible, and it’s pretty much impossible to have a normal conversation with her. she only hears what she wants to hear, every conversation can just turn into a huge misunderstanding that it’s just easier to smile and nod most the time when we talk. hubby has the same issues with her, and mil and fil have a much more tense relationship with her

    i’m closer to my other sil, my brother’s wife. she’s pretty quiet and not the warmest, so we don’t really talk much unless we see each other, but we do get along really well when we are together

    DH has 3 sisters – one is his twin (3 years older), one is 7 years older than me and the other is 8 years older than me – I would consider myself pretty good friends with his twin – the more time we spend together the closer we get. She also lived with us for a total of 6 months so I know her pretty well. His 2nd oldest sister and I are fairly close as well. I am not close with his oldest sister

    I don’t like her. I’ve tried for a very long time to get along with her, but to no avail. She makes anti american jokes/remarks, when I first met her she spoke in this ridiculous american accent the entire time (she’s dutch), she’s constantly asking my Fiance how much money I make, I sent her a Xmas card this year and didn’t even get a thank you and I can go on and on. I just gave up and I don’t bother anymore. I had initially asked her to be a bridesmaid to which she complained about everything so now she’s been fired. Even her father is embarrassed about the way she has been acting. Her mother acts the same way as she does so it’s obvious the fruit doesn’t fall far from the tree!

    I didn’t really fit into the poll. I voted “best of friends”. But we’re really in the middle. I see her every time I come into town, and we love being around each other. But I don’t go out of my way to hang out with her (only a few times). Maybe when I move there we’ll get to be best sisters together ๐Ÿ™‚
