Mostly great, she is an old hippie, go with the flow, laugh at lifes lemons kinda lady who has a great big heart and is terribly accepting and understanding.

She does however deal with BPII, which can make things difficult/tense at times.

but overall its is a great relationship–she has been there for me in ways my own mother never has been.

I have a good relationship with my husband’s stepmom.  She is a wonderful person and we get along really well.  Mother-In-Law. . .not so much.  I do have some friends who have fantastic relationships with their in-laws and I am wholly jealous!  Lucky you!

@cr6zy:  hehe even AFTER the wedding they do!  I created a wedding scrapbook for my parents and my in-laws and posted it on one of the sites I’m part of, and they found it!  Sneaky devils!  😀  They emailed me about it yesterday, and how much they like the album and how much they miss the both of us.  I thought it was very sweet and I love that they keep checking up on us!

Future Mother-In-Law is okay. I don’t have anything against her and she’s always been very nice to me. But is she my bff? no. And I’m kind of upset that she asked me to call her “mom”. I have a mom and she is my best friend.

Yes! They are such kind people and immediately opened their hearts to me. My Future Mother-In-Law is teaching me how to cook with fish and I spend time with my Future Father-In-Law in his woodworking shop; we’re working on wedding things together!

We’re lucky in that we both get along really well with each other’s families.  My fiance is a lot closer with his father than his mother, so I see his stepmom more than his mom.  We’re very much on the same page with stuff (I think we both have that brain to mouth filter issue ;P )and I really enjoy spending time with her.  I like his mom too, I just don’t feel all that close with her because we only see her a couple times a year.

I do!  She’s awesome!  She considers me her daughter already, makes me help set the table, gives me a stocking hanging on the fireplace right next to the other kids, badgers me non-stop about getting married and having kids and loves to talk, like me! 😛  We actually lived with them for a while and it was great!  Plus, they dogsit for their granddog whenever we go away – so wonderful!

I simply ADORE his mom. I read this horror stories  and can’t relate. She’s never pushed herself into our relationship. She;s just a good person and she cracks me up. I’m blessed.

I love my Future In-Laws. They live two doors down from us, which sounds a little close, but it’s actually awesome. If they ever order pizza or chinese, they always get us extra and drop it off. Future Mother-In-Law often just drops off a home cooked dinner or brownies. Last week she made us porkchops with apples and stuffing. She called me to tell me she was going to run it over to the house before I got home from work (she ALWAYS asks before using the spare key). When I got home I was greeted by this amazing smelling, hot dinner all ready to eat. There was also surprise chocolate pudding in the fridge. Yeah, they’re pretty great. 🙂

I wish I did. She’s nice to me but I know I’m far from what she had in mind for her son and she doesn’t approve of some of the decisions we’ve made (like living together before marriage) so I think there will likely always be a rift between us.

My Future Mother-In-Law is AMAZING!!! Granted my future husband and I have been together since we were 17 (10 years, smh) so she is very much use to me but I still consider it a bonus that she likes me. She does more for me at times than my own mother does. She paid for half of my dress, threw us an engagement party, renting all of the chairs for the ceremony, and is buying all the alcohol. She calls me more than she calls him at times. So I totally understand what you mean.

I have a  great relationship with mine. She’s wonderful. Is she quirky sometimes? Of course, but then, so are me and you and everyone else. She’s a kind lady who would give you the shirt off her back and do ANYTHING to help you out. And when there have been things I’ve been upset about that I can’t talk to my mom about, she’s always had a listening ear.

Who I REALLY love is my Father-In-Law. He is the sweetest man ever, besides MY dad. I just love him to bits. He is so non-judgemental and has made me feel so welcome and loved in their family.

I get along great with both of my MIL’s.  I always worried about this, because growing up my grandma wasn’t very nice to my mom and my other grandma wasn’t that nice to my dad:(  But I so lucked out with mine.  From the moment I met her, she made me feel like family and my mom and her are becoming really good friends as well, so it makes family get togethers so easy.
