Mine are the best!

 

I hear so many horror stories about people having problems with their in-laws, and I feel so, so lucky that it’s not like that with them at all. They’ve always been so welcoming and so helpful when it comes to the wedding, I couldn’t ask for more.

 

I’ve never had a good relationship with my mother, and my Future Mother-In-Law never had a daughter of her own, so I try to keep her involved in every aspect of planning. I think it means a lot to both of us (and especially my FI) that we’re able to have a close relationship. We e-mail each other throughout the week, and even go out to dinner just the 2 of us about once a month.

 

Seriously, I adore the woman. Lol

I love my in-laws. We aren’t very close, but I know they love me and want only the best for my Fiance and I. I love how while they want to be involved they never are overbearing or overstep their boundaries.

I love my in-laws! 🙂

I cant say that I honestly do. My in laws have given me so much grief from day 1 that I can barely muster up any sort of conversation when I go over to their house. You are lucky 🙂

Mine are great! They’re very sweet, if a little overprotective of FH and I. They’re also paying for most of our wedding which has been incredibly generous and gracious of them. I like being around them, and his mom and I talk on the phone quite a bit.

@BearcatBetch:  wow they are very generous!

@iammcdibble:  I can relate but with Future Father-In-Law

Future Mother-In-Law and I had an issue with the bridal shower but that’s the extent of it. She’s a very good woman and has always been very welcoming to me.

I am very close to Future Father-In-Law, he’s like my surrogate father. He’s given us several thousand for our honeymoon as well.

Well, my future Mother-In-Law lives like 1500 miles away and while future Father-In-Law lives nearby, we don’t see him often.  When we do see them, they are both very nice and generous.  FIL will email me sometimes to say hi.  He’s sweet.  So yeah, I’d say I like my in-laws.

OP, you are VERY lucky. Seriously, I hope you say a prayer thanking God for these amazing people everyday! I am very envious. I *had* a great relationship with my FIL’s UNTIL we got engaged. Somewhere between May 29, 2011 and now things have gone completely downhill. I was so sad because my parents are not in my life, so I was so grateful thinking I was getting such a great family — boy was I fooled 🙁 It was like a light switched. I’m not sure why some inlaws are fantastic and others are just plain crazy — but I got the crazy stick.

I love mine.  We have been struggling with severe infertily and they have been our rock.   They don’t have the money to help us with IVF but theire emotional support has been priceless.

My ex boyfriend’s parents were horrid to me.   I will never forgot how they made me feel compared to my ILs.   I feel so lucky.

I feel very lucky that my future in-laws aodre me and I adore them. They ahve never beena anything but nice to me, including my fiance’s siblings. They have always included me in everything and have alwasy treated me like a daughter. The only downside is taht there is a bit of a language barrier but we are working on that.

You are lucky to have such a great relationship with them! I can’t say that I “love” them. I do tolerate them.

I adore FI’s family.  They are wonderful – involved without being overbearing.

I didn’t get along with my ex-husband’s family so I consider myself very lucky this time around.

I love my future in-laws.  Since the day I met each and every one of them they’ve been nothing but loving, kind and welcoming to me.  I know how fortunate I am to have them as my family now.
