    I’ll stand alone in my 1% of ‘The entire family is a bunch of whack jobs, it’s not ok’. I can’t stand the lot. Worst people I’ve ever come across. No idea how Fiance is even related.

    @MmeSilverBullet:  His dad and step mom tried to convince us to invest in foreign money to make more money… lol. They just have some crazy ideas. πŸ˜‰ They moved across the country for a job that he didn’t have yet and then moved BACK a few months later… I’m talking about from Alabama to Nevada!

    • Wedding: February 2018 - Toronto, Ontario

    i’ve had a great relationship with his family from day 1 when we started dating. i’ve mentioned before that my would-be Mother-In-Law was sick, and Fiance is the type of person who keeps everything inside didn’t tell me that the prognosis was bad, i was thinking shes recovering and it was a shock when he came home one day a couple of weeks ago in tears and told me shes gone. i still can’t believe someone so vibrant and eager and hugry for life is no longer with us, during my toughest time when i felt like i was at rock bottom and everyone turned away it was she who has supported me with her wisdom and enabled me to get my life together, i really wish i had more time with her. But my father and Future Father-In-Law have gotten to know each other and now they go out together weekly, and Future Brother-In-Law is at our place or were haning out somewhere together several times a week. we’re just two very small families who i guess are happy to be with each other.

    My FI’s family told him to date other people after our first meeting. πŸ™ UGH! Even though, before then they told me not to be nervous that “they are gonna love me.” Well apparently not so much. I haven’t gotten over it since then and felt the “dislike” the first couple years of being together. My Fiance always told me that I was making things up and that they “love” me, but then at Thanksgiving one of his cousins confirmed that nobody liked me at the beginning. It “took awhile for me to come around.”


    I’m not happy with my Fi’s family and wish I could choose another.

    @MmeSilverBullet:  It is sad. I have my own very long thread about it – I could have gone on longer. Thankfully I hit jackpot with the greatest FH ever πŸ™‚

    @MmeSilverBullet:  Awkward CAN be fun, but they’re not. lol. Not like they say embarrassing or inappropriate things that make you shake your head… they often just DON’T TALK. Like, walk into the room and ignore us, even if we say hello. The last exchange I got with Future Brother-In-Law was “SPEAK ENGLISH” (yelled) because I was struggling to say something in Spanish (my Spanish, FOR THE RECORD, is infinitely better than his English, but whatever)… and the last thing from his wife was something mocking my job. Ugh. I just avoid them if I can. Unfortunately, I love their daughter, and she asked to be our flower girl… so I guess these jokers are coming to the wedding.

    I ADORE his family πŸ™‚ I am so very very lucky. I call his mom and dad “Mama and Papa LastName”. I actually live with them right now. All three of their kids still live at home (obvi this includes my FI) and they welcomed me into the home with open arms when I needed it. They are so cool.

    His brother is so funny, and his sister (she’ll be 20 soon and I asked her to be a bridesmaid) started crying when I gave her her presents this year: a super thin silver ring that says “sisters” and a bracelet that has a saying about sisters. So then of course I cried. And then his mom joined in haha.

    Is there an option for “I tolerate Father-In-Law because he is my husband’s dad but I really want to tell him how much of a chauvinist he is, but Mother-In-Law is nice and.my BIL/SiL could be lots worse?” 

    I have decent in laws but DH is so totally opposite anyone in his family so they don’t “get” him at all. And it really screwed with his desire to accomplish things because it would never be the stuff his parents thought was important. But I also know I could have it way worse. His family ia just super different than mine and it’s weird to not do stuff like burst into six part show tunes at the dinner table or have an in-depth discussion of the advantages of an atalatal over a long bow for hunting wooly mammoth. For fun.

    I love my inlaws.  My Mother-In-Law lives around the corner, Bil/SIL and niece live with in a mile of us, &SIL/BIL & 2 more nieces live about 45min away.  We just had the  best Christmas.  I have only met Father-In-Law 2xs (we do talk on the phone) he lives out west and makes it to town when he can. 

    This summer my brother’s grandaughter stayed with us for 3weeks, her and my DH’s brother’s daughter are about the same age.  They call each other on the phone, and sent each other letters to keep in touch as cousin-in-laws.  My dad just loves DH’s mom and is glad that since i moved 15hours south, that I have them all around me.

    @chasesgirl:  that option made me laugh …. sounds like my dad talking about my mother’s family.  When my mom passed away (years and years ago) we no longer have any contact with them cause they went yachting instead of coming to my mothers funeral … who does that crazy stuff. 

    Hang in there YOUR family sounds hysterical!!

    They’re good people. Once I don’t live with them anymore our relationship will be much easier and friendly. The way it should be.
