I love love LOVE my Future Mother-In-Law, in fact I love all of my future in-laws, My SO’s parents are wonderful – his mum is so sweet, caring and kind and his dad is just the most laidback, funny, wonderful guy who would do anything for his kids! I’m also lucky that I love my Future Sister-In-Law and FBIL! 

Our situation is kind of weird… My parents and my SO’s parents LOVE each other, we all went on a family holiday to Bali in 2012 and then both sets of parents have since been back to Bali together WITHOUT US!!! 

Everyone who meets us thinks it is really strange but to us it’s normal now. We all spend weekends, Birthday’s and Christmas together.. its fantastic and I feel so lucky to have that 🙂

my own family was never close and i don’t have much of a relationship with my own mother. my Future Mother-In-Law is amazing. she really loves me. so much so she cooks what i like to eat when we go over for dinner and Fiance has to eat it!! haha. i’ve even seen her plonk some food on a plate and just hand it over to Fiance, whereas she lovingly scoops up what i like to eat and plates it nicely, even wiping off the splatter on the side of the plate before she gives it to me. yep, i’m a lucky one.

As one bee once said on another post “I hit the mother in law jackpot”. My fiancé and I have been together for nearly 6yrs and have a 4yr old son…I couldn’t have been any luckier to get such an amazing future mother in law and grandmother to my son :).

My FIL’s are awesome! They have always been absolutely sweet and welcoming to me and treat me as their own. I also get along with them better than my own family. I can confide in Future Mother-In-Law in a way I never could with my own mother because my mom is suuuuuper conservative catholic, and just generally really emotionally intense, so there are many things that I just can’t/don’t talk to her about because it’s not worth the ordeal. With Future Mother-In-Law, I can say speak my mind freely, talk about politics, progressive ideas, religion, whatever etc. And we joke about FI’s little traits that annoy us both lol.

Ya, I’m intensely grateful to be joining such a great family.

I do! I was accepted into the family from the very start, and she’s helped me through so much.

I love my Mother-In-Law. I don’t get along very well with my mother but I get along great with my Mother-In-Law. We are very different, and have different opinions about parenting (in the future I mean, currently FH and I don’t have kids), and what things are important in the wedding etc. But she is respectful and realizes that it is OUR day and not HERS so she is just trying to be helpful in her own way, and I do appreciate it. Sometimes I am like “YEAH! Great idea!” and other times I am like, “Umm… no”. The fact that I am comfortable communicating my true opinions to her says a lot since I am not very good at communicating with people usually. 🙂

So yeah – my Mother-In-Law is great! I really like everyone in his family.

My Future Mother-In-Law just told me for a bridal shower gift I can…. pick whichever Chanel bag I want. Is this real life? I love my Future Mother-In-Law, seriously she is so doting and loving and so happy to have a new daughter

I love my FMIL! She’s bat-sh*t crazy sometimes, and the 100% opposite of my mom, but she’s awesome most of the time! She welcomed me into her family from day one!

I love my Future Mother-In-Law and his 2 brothers. It was a bit difficult in the beginning. And i felt uncomfertable ( am black, they’re white) and didn’t feel welcome. After a talk, we cleared the air and since then, we are really close. She travels a lot and always brings me souvenirs. We go shopping, work out together, we can talk about everything and she can’t walt for me to have some chocolate babies. I have a heartcondition and she’s was like if you don’t make an appointment, i will. And came and get me after my surgery. She told me she has never seen her son so happy, and he changed but in a good way, all thanks to me. She really loves me and i love her too.
