I am apparently the bad person in FI’s family because I don’t “Love” all of his family yet.  Whenever a new person joins the family, you are supposed to love everyone immediately.  But I don’t – I can’t.  It’s just not me – its very hard for me to get into the “love” feeling for people other than Fiance and my immediate family.  So when we’re talking on the phone, they get offended at the end if I don’t say “I love you too”.

No, we hate each other. Like, literally, hate. It has gotten so bad that I am banning them from coming to the hospital when I have my second child in 7 weeks. They treat me like dirt, so I have decided that my husband can deal with them, but they will no longer be allowed to see my children.

I love my in-laws! They treat me like there daughter since my fiance is there only child and they always wanted a girl. We live with them rent free and although they can annoy us sometimes they are still amazing! ๐Ÿ™‚

I like mine a lot. Hopefully I’ll be able to “love” them AFTER the wedding. Future Mother-In-Law means well, but wedding planning with her involved has been a little interesting and we don’t always see eye-to-eye on things…

So jealous of all you bees with the great in-laws! The relationship I have with mine is nothing but hard work and biting my tongue. What comforts me a little is that FIs brother-in-law doesn’t really get along with them either, so I know it’s not all in my head ๐Ÿ˜€

I’m hoping it’ll get better with time, but I don’t see myself getting really close with them in the future.

I love my inlaws and am so so so glad I have them in my life!  I was tremendously blessed both by finding my husband and then again with his family.  ๐Ÿ™‚

The only thing I “like” about my Future Mother-In-Law is that she gave birth to my fiance. 

Seriously. I can. not. STAND 99% of her personality/lifestyle, etc, etc. I seriously do not know how her son managed to become the man he is today.

I tolerate her and sometimes feel bad for her because of the things she’s been through, but she plays the victim and does nothing to improve her life or circumstances and is bitter and nasty and selfish about everything. It took her over a year to even acknowledge that I was engaged to her son and I know she doesn’t like me simply because I’m “taking him away from her.”

I feel really bad even saying stuff like this, but it is what it is. I have TRIED to become closer to her but she is like … ugh I don’t even know. Trying to hug a cobra who, like, mutilates itself lol.

Future Father-In-Law seemed like an okay guy but I only knew him for 8 months before he passed away suddenly. Undecided 

Oh and my fiance has 2 half brothers (on his dad’s side) but they are total TRASH. I only met the younger one once — he was dishonorable discharged from the army for drugs, and stole his dad’s money while he was dying in the hospital, just to give an example of what kind of outstanding citizen he is.

The older brother I never met but he didn’t even come to his father’s funeral. He’s been writing bad checks the past 15 years and giving out my fiane’s address and phone # instead of his own, and used to beat the HELL out of my fiance when he was little. Another outstanding citizen. 

Needless to say, neither one of the “brothers” are coming to the wedding. Actually, my fiance refuses to even acknowledge their existence now that his dad is gone.

Sorry to be a downer but I am very jealous of those of you who have good relationships with your in-laws. Don’t take it for granted!
