I get along fine with my Future In-Laws…his mom and dad are seperated, but I get along with both of them, as well as my Future Brother-In-Law and Future Sister-In-Law and the aunts/uncles/cousins. I don’t always understand them….and I don’t actually LIKE some of them…..but I get along all right with them. For the most part, he likes my family (but hasn’t met much of my extended family, just the one aunt) He’s never going to be best buddies with my brothers but they get along okay and everything, and he loves my mom. He hates my dad, but then everyone does, so that’s not surprising. Why, don’t you get along with yours?

In all honesty, I can stand them but I don’t like them.

His mum’s a bit loopy but not too bad; his dad is a sexist, homophobic, racist bigot and I find him really difficult and as a lefty, liberal, feminist, bisexual, Jewish atheist I’m pretty much his nightmare daughter in law (the only way I could be “worse” in his eyes would be if I were black, foreign and had multiple children by different fathers).

I get along well with my Mother-In-Law.  We talk at least once a week on the phone.  She pissed me off a few times during wedding planning (she’s very blunt and doesn’t consider other peoples feelings sometimes) and during the wedding weekend, but overall we have a great relationship.  My husband is still traumatized after learning that she gave me her Facebook password, haha.  I’ve only met Father-In-Law twice and he seems like a nice guy but I just get this weird vibe from him, like he’s totally insincere and doesn’t really like me all that much.  That’s fine by me, though.  He’s not a big part of my husband’s life and I only met him this year so I don’t think we’ll interact much in the future.

I’m already married so they are my current in-laws, but I love them!  We all get along great!  Darling Husband and I are vacationing to Mexico with them over Thanksgiving and are so looking forward to spending time with them.

I get along with my Future In-Laws, they are great with me even when Fiance and I just started dating. Sometimes the way they treat Fiance and his brothers is a little harsh (they all have a temper and don’t mindshowing it in front of me). But they treat me so well and have welcomed me with open arms!

Absolutely! I’ve had some ups and downs with my FIL’s wife (SMIL?!), but we’re through it now. I love my Mother-In-Law and Brother-In-Law and have a great relationship with both of them 🙂

I get along with them ok. It’s a bit annoying when they don’t speak English when I’m around unless they’re asking me something (they’ll sit their discussing the wedding in their native tongue and only break to ask me something, then go back to it) but one of my fiance’s brothers told them off for this. One of the FSIL’s also does the not speaking in English thing but she is also incredibly bossy and patronising about the wedding so I prefer it when I don’t know what she’s saying lol.

No. Not at all.

His mother has been  bad in the past but is at least trying.

His sister is just a mean person who is lonely and feels the need to take it out on me. Oh and I’ve never even met her.

I get along with my FI’s brother’s wife and kids. 

There is a large age gap between me and his siblings so that is part of the problem I think.

I get along great with FI’s brothers, dad and stepmother I love them all. His mom on the other hand is a real piece of work.. and the answer to that would be no not really. I try to be civil thats as good as it gets.

Future Mother-In-Law – we have our moments, but she usually doesn’t know about them.  I just vent to my mom and best friends about her.  I try to keep the peace between us and bite my tongue as much as possible.

Future Sister-In-Law – we don’t really interact much.  Of course we talk when we see each other, and it’s fine, but definitely not going to be hanging out together or anything like that, unfortunately, because I would have loved that since I have no siblings.
