There was just a similar thread, but I still think it’s great! I love mine! My boyfriend’s mom has passed away and his stepdad re-married. He re-married a woman that is 15 years younger than him and only 11 years older than my boyfriend and I. I love her! I know I can talk to her about anything and she is more like an older sister to me than a MIL. They also have a 3 year old daughter so our future kids will be pretty close in age to their aunt and will always have a friend so that makes me happy! Even though I never met my real MIL, I know I would love her and vice versa. She musta been pretty damn amazing to raise my boyfriend! Both of my parents have also passed away so my boyfriend gets the shit end of the stick when it comes to in laws. We’ve said multiple times that although we wish we could’ve met each others parents we will never have to deal with the in law bullshit you read so much about on here.

I love both of my future in-laws! They are awesome, kind, wonderful people who have welcomed me into their family with open arms. They are super considerate, are aware of boundaries, and are fun to hang out with too. Seeing their relationship with my future SIL (FI’s brother’s wife) first hand makes me have zero doubts about in law issues (outside of issues that may naturally occur). My FI is the first born son, and I feel like my in laws are excited for him to get married and be happy, not worried about me “taking him away”.

There’s always drama and gossip in any family, but I do care for my in-laws. FI’s parents have always made me feel like part of the family. FSIL can drive me crazy from time to time with the insane things that come out of her mouth, and gossip is part of that, but I would still consider her a friend and someone who would be there for me if I needed it. FMIL and FFIL have treated me as their DIL for years. They can be counted on.

I do!

My FMIL is WONDERFUL! She and I are very much alike and I think that’s part of the reason my FI fell for me in the first place. He is very much like his dad. She’s so sweet to me and we just get along so well. She is so awesome about not stepping on my feet about wedding planning and after a brief scuffle over her wanting 10 extra invites, she finally gave it up and realized that it’s our wedding and we get to make the decisions.

She loves me and she has always liked me as first, her son’s best friend and later, his girlfriend and now his fiance and VERY soon, his WIFE. 

She also just stood up for me and her son, when my FSIL (her daughter) announced her engagement and said that they were going to be married the day before FI and I were. FMIL, pretty much said no, that is not okay and if she wanted financial help from her parents, she needed to move the wedding date several months away.

I love that woman.

I get along with her very well – we’re both a lot alike.  I’m not sure she’s crazy about my tattoos (I have five and the collection keeps growing) or the fact that I change my appearance (I currently have a purple pixie cut) but generally we mesh really well.

I love mine. Don’t get me wrong, they are not perfect, but I am estranged from my own parents and it means a great deal that my in-laws have embraced me and made me feel so at home in their family. They have done a lot for us in terms of the wedding and my MIL is going to take care of our cats when we are on honeymoon even though she hates cats, which really means a lot to me. Not all in-laws are a nightmare, although my FI would probably say that his are!

I don’t know her very well t be honest. She seems great from our few interactions. We’ve never hung out just us or done any type of bonding things. I honestly don’t know why. I am going to try to work on spending more time with her.

kortizi0:  I love my MIL and I admire her. She raised my husband and his 2 brothers on her own.

I also love my FIL and my other FIL (MIL’s new husband). I feel really sorry for my husband step dad because his own daughters are absolute witches so myself and my SIL like to treat him like he is our own father because I know it hurts him so much that his daughters have cut him out of his life (due to marrying my MIL and money issues). It sucks that people can be like that and not want their parents to be happy and only think about money. We have told them both to leave us out of their will because we don;t have the energy to fight those witches for anything and we already got the best part- MIL’s husband love and time something that no amount of money  can replace.
