Sometimes I like my in-laws more than my own family lol. I lived with my Future In-Laws for 6 months while Fiance was away at boot camp & they were awesome! FIs dad packed my lunch for work everyday and made dinner every night. They refused to take a penny from me because they Knew I was going to quit my job to go get my Masters fulltime & wanted us to save. They are also paying for the majority of the wedding. Even before we got engaged they said I was already like a daughter to them. I am one lucky gal !

I adore my ILs, all of them (BsIL, SsIL, aunts, uncles, etc). I hit the In-Law jackpot, and I’m incredibly grateful for it, especially since with the exception of my mother and one SIL, I don’t talk to/get along with most of my family. DH’s family welcomed me into their family with open arms.

@mrs_g.mck: I’m in the same situation as you. Before we got engaged it wasn’t perfect but a lot better than it is now.

I do love my in-laws. They are truly amazing people, and they treat me like a daughter.

Future Father-In-Law is a horrible, abusive person who is not even being invited to our wedding.

Future Mother-In-Law is so nice and kind. She is so helpful and involved without overstepping any bounds and trying to control everything. I love her and her boyfriend.

Nope. Don’t even like them. Feeling is pretty much mutual. As it’s unlikely me and Fiance will have kids now (both in our 40s), luckily contact with them will be minimial. Fiance can deal with them on his own.

I absolutely adore his parents. I talk to his mom on the phone every couple of days (she calls me just to say hi) and she always says “we love you” before she hangs up. She’s just so sweet.

I do. It’s great to finally see a nice post about inlaws as they seem rare around here. Our relationship is by no means perfect, but I think they are mutal respect on both sides, and I loved getting to know them, and having our familyies interact. I know certain things they don’t agree with me on and that is ok, I also know that Future Mother-In-Law needed to vent a little bit about not having a catholic mass, rather then get huffy about it, I’m giving her the space to have her feelings. I’m really thankful that she will be doing a lot of crafting for our wedding which will save us time and money. I’m also grateful for the son they raised and now he is going to be husband!

I absolutely loved my Future Mother-In-Law, but she passed away 🙁 But I don’t get along so well with Future Father-In-Law. It sort of makes me sad, but it is what it is.

My Father-In-Law are really nice. I don’t actually spend much time with them (they live in Sweden) but we have spent extensive time together while we/they visit. They’re just lovely, and I give them credit for how wonderful/thoughtful my Fiance is.

I’m not sure I love them, but I don’t hate them either. I get along with Mother-In-Law better than Father-In-Law. In my opinion, he is way too direct and often comes across as rude whenever we talk.

I don’t “love” my in laws, but I don’t hate them either. I guess it’s just a neutral kind of relationship. I could take them or leave them.

I’m jealous. I wish I had a great relationship with my Future In-Laws. They’re divorced, so both kinda bitter about that and God forbid I bring one of them up to the other.. Future Father-In-Law is a normal guy, although we don’t see him very often he’s easy to get along with & nice enough. Future Mother-In-Law I think was born on another planet. The first day we met & she asked my name, she replied “Well I guess I should just call you b!tc,h that’s probably what I’ll be saying in a few weeks anyway.” Who says that to a stranger?! She’s gotten nicer to me over the years, but I’m still always nervous what’s going to come out of her mouth! I always tell my mom “FI is so lucky to have Father-In-Law like you & dad…”

Yes my Mother-In-Law and SIL are great… I kinda dont like some of DH’s cousins but I dont have to see them or interact with them often.
