    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 Fiance has two sisters. One I get along with well, but since she lives far away we only see her about once or twice a year. Unfortunately, even though the second one lives closer, I do not like her one bit. I’ve tried to become close to her, but she is completely indifferent to me so I gave up. My fiance doesn’t get along with her so I don’t feel too bad about it, but it does make me sad sometimes.

    I’m thankful my Fiance doesn’t have a sister.  All the guys I’ve dated have had sisters and they always seem to be super competitive with me.  I never understood it.  I’m happy with his brother.  We joke around and get along just fine.

    FI’s sister is one of my closest friends and is going to be my Maid/Matron of Honor. We get along really well.

    I am friends with both of my ex-FIs sisters and his nieces and cousins. Everybody loved me:-) My ex-MIL actually said I reminded her of her youngest daughter. She would take me from my Fiance and talk my head off for hours. She really really loved me, but I wasn’t marrying her. Hehehe. And his cousins and nieces were really accepting. His niece called me mom cause she called him dad. Sad to say, it was hard to break up from everyone so I just skipped it and didn’t. I just kinda dissappeared from the scene. His youngest sister and I would have like hour conversations on the phone even tho we never met before. And I seen his oldest sister every week. She was really nice, but they are both like 20 years older than me. Same way with my sisters, theyre are both 20 years older than me!!!!

    Fiance has a sister I am not very close with, but he is BFFs enough with my brother to do the inlaw-loving thing for the both of us ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Love my SIL and I would say we’re on the way to being really good friends but cos she lives three hours away we really don’t see each other very often.

    SIL is pregnant and due in September which is really exciting and I think the new arrival will bring us all closer.

    I don’t have any sisters so it’s nice to have her in my life ๐Ÿ™‚

      Fiance has a brother, but the brother is married, so I have a future SIL. We do get along well! We’ve gone out to lunch a few times and we’ve talked about things before. We don’t see each other a lot because Fiance currently lives in a different town, so I don’t see his family all that much. I am really glad she will be my SIL, though :-).

    My FI’s sister and I are very different but we really care about eachother and love eachother! We don’t see everything in the same light, but she is a very kind and sweet person, and I feel super lucky to have her as my new family!

    Now her husband on the other hand…ugh.

    I wouldn’t say my Future Sister-In-Law is my best friend but I wouldn’t say I dislike her; I just think that I would never be friends with her if I wasn’t marrying her brother.

    Mostly because she talks down about my FH to me, saying he’s overweight and saying things like, “you know, I had to move out young because he drove me to it.”  I’ve lived with FH for over four years and work in law enforcement, so if something wasn’t right with him, I think I would have figured it out by now (i.e. he would have displayed indicators of behaviour that I would have picked up on).  This leads me to believe that she is overly dramatic and loves to blame other people for her actions.

    I disagree with her parenting style, the way she behaves, etc.  If she was my true sister, my mother would have sat her down a long time ago and explained that her behaviour was self-destructive and somewhat “un-lady like” (my mom is a constant debutante….ha ha), however, nobody in this family will say anything to her.

    I have learned that a) she isn’t going away, she will be my family and b) smiling and acting stupid sometimes gets you VERY far ๐Ÿ™‚

    However, the second my FH and I are husband and wife and she makes a comment about him, she’s going to be advised that I will not be entertaining this kind of behaviour towards him.

    Sorry for the long post; this is a very loaded question in my world ๐Ÿ™‚

    My FI’s has an older half-sister that I have only meet a few times because she lives out of state. She is quiet but friendly. My Fiance has a younger full sister that is 23 and we get along well and have gotten close in past six months.

    The moment I met his sister we clicked and started hanging out just about every weekend. Her friends became my friends and my friends became hers. My Fiance would tell me he’s jealous (not being serious of course) that we hang out so much. She is one of my maid of honors and I’m proud to say that she is a damn good friend!
