I say all the time that I have the best Future Mother-In-Law & FFIL!  I have always felt that I am really lucky.  My Future Mother-In-Law is so sweet and wonderful.  We like the same types of things ,craft fairs, same authors, same movies, tv shows.  I think that my Future Mother-In-Law and I have more in common than me and my own mother.  My Fiance told me the other day that “they” always say that guys “Marry someone just like there mother”, and he says that in this case it’s so true!

Love love love my MIL! She is wonderful and took me in as family from day one. I know how lucky I am when I hear so many horror stories. I can’t say enough about her.

My Future Mother-In-Law is amazing. I adore her.

My Future Father-In-Law is a good man, generous and helpful, and he’d do anything for his sons. He’s also kind of overbearing and boorish. Once I learned to get past that (we only see him a few times a year so it helps), I learned to appreciate him and love him as well.

My Future Mother-In-Law is awesome, I feel so lucky to have her! FH is an only child, and he claims that she always wanted a daughter, so I now get the “spoilings” of her desire to have a daughter. She is so smart and tough, but also very, very caring and sweet. Both she and my mom will be good role models if we have a daughter! She will likely move close to us (currently 3,000 miles away) when we have a baby, and I’m looking forward to having her closer.

Future Father-In-Law is great too (they are divorced and we don’t see him as much), and all the parents get along very well, which is certainly a relief!

Well I don’t exactly “love” my Future Mother-In-Law, but I don’t hate her either. She is pretty much uninvolved in our lives. She calls the Fiance maybe once a week and me maybe once a month. We saw her at Thanksgiving and Christmas, but since she and future step-dad moved out of town I don’t know how often we will see them at holidays anymore since the Fiance prefers holidays at my parent’s house (my parents make a HUGE spectacle of every holiday).

She drinks quite a bit, but is never violent or mean. It just if we have something going on after 3:00 pm, it is doubtful she will make it because she prefers to drink and stay at home watching tv or reading. The Future Step-dad is very patient and caring towards her. I don’t mind him at all, but again he isn’t super involved.

Honestly though, I am thankful about that! I’ve heard SO many people complain about how involved their Mother-In-Law is in their lives and how much it bugs them. Mine is pleasant to be around, fun, but very non-intrusive into our lives.

Now my mother on the other hand…Undecided

Good thing the Fiance likes her!

i do! i do!  my own mother–while i love her–is chemically imbalanced and she made growing up an absolute nightmare.  I grew up in a household of constant fear and tension–nothing my brother or I could do could ever make her happy.  FMIL is everything i always wish I had growing up–she’s so caring and supportive.  she’s just a really cool lady and i feel so grateful to be joining her family 🙂

I adore my Future Mother-In-Law. She is mellow, accepting, level-headed, caring, sweet, compassionate, understanding, fun-loving and my god HILARIOUS. Everything my mother is not. Compared to my ultra-strained relationship with my Mother, my Future Mother-In-Law is a breeze.

C & I clicked immediately, it was like meeting a new friend rather than IL. I cannot WAIT to be able to call her  *mum* (for reals, I`m super cereal :P).

I love mine she is one of the sweetest ladies I know and I can’t wait to give her grandchildren so she can spoil them. I feel closer to my Future Mother-In-Law than my own mother simple because she listens. I appreciate having her apart of my family.

I love my entire future-inlaw-family. They live in England while my fiance and I live on the East Coast. My Future Sister-In-Law is one of my best friends and we text constantly. My Future Mother-In-Law is a doll. I really believe she is happy to have another “daughter” after a professional boxer and footballer for sons! I was taken in from day one and feel so welcome.  I honeslty think they may love me more than him and he agrees! I look forward to officially joining his family with mine. I have never felt more loved!

Agreed! I feel lucky to have the Future In-Laws that I do. While we don’t always see eye-to-eye on all things (we’re from different parts of the country) we respect each others views. 

I look at some of the families friends have married into and I feel incredibly lucky.

Oh man! I love my Future Mother-In-Law so much. (is it terrible that I could probably say I love her even more then my own mother at this point?!?) My mom and I have never really gotten along and his mom and I, well we just CLICK. She totally listens to anything I have to say and will give me good advice. She doesn’t tell me to do stuff she just suggests things and then apologizing for suggesting. lol 🙂

I’m so glad she is so supportive through everything (even when I moved out of my parents house and had no where to go and they let me stay there until my Fiance and I got our own place

I don’t really get along with my Future Sister-In-Law, but my Future Mother-In-Law is wonderful and my Future Father-In-Law is pretty great, too (although much harder to read than FMIL).  Of all Peanut’s relatives, though, I think his grandfather loves me the most! It’s so, so sweet to see his grandfather with him–both of them just glow with happiness and love.

I love my Mother-In-Law and FIL! They’ve been amazing to me ever since I moved to this town and became close with my husband–who was just a friend at the time, 3.5 years ago. They are like my second parents, and I get to see them a lot more than my own family that lives 5 hours away. My Mother-In-Law is the sweetest lady, always thinking the best of people and lifting others up. She’s so selfless and she raised her sons to be sensitive to women and unafraid to appreciate plays and chick flicks. My Father-In-Law treats me as another daughter, supportive of anything i do–both of them come to my little 5K and 10K races and cheer me on. 

I love my husbands family in general–his brother’s wife is one of my best friends–the sister I never had. All of his cousins/siblings got married in the span of 2 years, and we are all really close. It’s been such a blessing to be a part of their family–one I count as my own.

I love my FMILs! They are just the kindest people I know, and have helped me through the toughest time of my life, I don’t know where I’d be without them
