‘Cause I do.
She’s great. My Future Father-In-Law is too. My Future Mother-In-Law and I have been close since pretty much day one. We get along great. This weekend she’s treating me to brunch and a wedding show that I am really looking forward to.
The other night we went to dinner with our friends and we got to talking about IL’s. One of my best friends married one of FI’s best friends so we have the pleasure (and displeasure) of knowing both of their families. His family is a total nightmare and they treat my friend like crap. She knows that I have a great relationship with my Future Mother-In-Law and she almost cried when I was telling her about some of the things that my Future Mother-In-Law has helped me with for our wedding. It made me sad that she didn’t get to have the same experience since her Mother-In-Law is the devil.
Yesterday my Future Brother-In-Law told Fiance that he and his wife are pregnant and due 2 months before our wedding. I know I only get one day and all but I would be lying if I said I was overly thrilled about the timing. Don’t get me wrong, it definitely could be worse (like she could pop out the kid closer to our wedding) but this is going to more than likely affect our pre-wedding festivities and put added stress on FI’s parents (and my Future Brother-In-Law who is our best man). I’m not complaining about them having a kid so there’s no need to tell me I’m a bad person for feeling the way I do. Like I said, I get one day and as long as that day is solely MINE (well and FI’s), I’ll be fine.
Anywho, my Future Mother-In-Law called me yesterday after she found out we were told about the news. She said and I quote… “Are you pissed? Because it’s okay if you’re a little pissed. If you ever need to vent you know where to find me.”. She obviously knew that I wasn’t going to be thrilled with the timing but I just think it’s awesome that she understands how I’m feeling considering this is going to be her grandchild.
Does anyone else have an awesome relationship with their FMIL/MIL?

I’m getting there with my Future Mother-In-Law. I’ve only seen her in person 3 weekends because she lives far away, but since we’ve gotten engaged there has been lots of calling back and forth for things and I appreciate that she’s very nice, not at all pushy, and very blunt. She doesn’t dance around things at all which just makes our relationship so much easier I think.

Both Fiance and I got really lucky with our in-laws everyone gets along. My Future Mother-In-Law is a very supportive and helpful women (sometimes too helpful, but her heart is in the right place. She is always done the little things that make a big difference. Years ago when we first moved in together we couldn’t afford things like a lawn mower or shovel and one day they just showed up. She also helps me occasionaly buys me plane tickets to go see her son. Its not always perfect but it would be hard to do much better

I get along great with my Future Mother-In-Law. All the wedding planning is actually bringing us even closer!

I have a great relationship with both Future Mother-In-Law and Future Father-In-Law (and his wife), but especially with Future Mother-In-Law.
She and I e-mail daily and Fiance and I visit her often. We’re planning our wedding where she lives so she’s been a huge help.
I’ve stayed with her a few times without Fiance and we’ve always had a great time.
I’m really happy that I will have both an east coast and west cost mom. Sometimes it’s hard to have my mom so far away in CA, it’s nice to have an east coast “mom” I can turn to.
ETA: Future Mother-In-Law actually picked out my wedding dress. I never would have picked it to try on, but it is gorgeous.

I love mine and I always get so sad for people who post about having issues with theirs. It just makes things so much easier, and FH’s family has never treated me like anything less than family. I think it truly makes getting married that much more meaningful, because I’m very proud to be joining his family and calling them mine.

I’ve vented about her a bit here, because as we all know, weddings make people go crazy. But minus the wedding planning, she is, and has always been, awesome!

My Mother-In-Law lives far, but we do talk. Whenever I’ve seen her, she has always been pleasant. If we move closer, I’m sure we would be closer. My SMIL and Father-In-Law and SFIL are all equally awesome. And my family just adores my husband. For the most part we all get along–which I’m grateful for.

I have a GREAT relationship with my FIL’s as well. The whole wedding planning as brought me and my Future Mother-In-Law soo much closer. We talk daily, and see each other often. I feel bad for the bees who have monster-in-laws!!!

I DO! I get along with her better than my own mother. She accepted me right away when J and I started dating. It was a huge compliment to me because she HATED his ex of 5 years. N used to tell me how when J’s ex was living with them, N would stay in her room all day and not even talk to her. She felt trapped in her own house. Never trusted her either. Turns out mothers are always right though. J’s ex cheated on him. A lot. But he was young at the time.
Anyways, she’s the one who was pressuring him into proposing. She and her mother constantly talked about how I was the one. It was so nice to hear. She definitely treats me as if I was her daughter from the beginning. 🙂

I love my in-laws! I consider myself truly blessed (especially after reading soooo many posts about this subject on wedding/baby forums) to have such awesome in-laws. My Mother-In-Law is about the sweetest person alive, and everyone of the family is welcoming, helpful, and truly happy to have me be a part of the family. 🙂 I just wish they were closer… 🙁

I still have a very good relationship with my ex-FMIL despite the fact that her son and I separated last May. We now live 2½ hours apart, but we Facebook each other daily, and miss each other so much! In fact, when I spent the holidays with the family, she informed me that I’m her favourite FDIL and she holds a lot of hope that the ex and I will be able to work everything out.

I’m also lucky to have a great relationship with my Future Mother-In-Law and Future Father-In-Law. They really are great, and we’ve gotten along very well since the beginning. My Dad passed away a little over 2 years ago, and it makes it a *little* easier to have my IL’s and a wonderful Mom. When we lived closer, we used to go over often for Sunday dinners, complete with pre-dinner cocktails and wine- we had so much fun! I spent xmas day with them for the 1st time this year, which was different, but they made efforts to make me feel at home (stocking, etc). We’ve gone on vacations and weekend trips, too. I’m also very lucky to get along great w/ FSIL- she’s 4 years younger, but we’ve become good friends over the past 5 years.
