I was facebook friends with my SIL prior to the wedding as well as my Brother-In-Law, but it was after the wedding I think that my SIL requested to list me as sister (darn fb with no in-law options!).  I have no issues since I think my SIL rocks!

Maybe she wants to get to know you better?  Dunno… just taking a guess.  🙂

How would accepting your Future Sister-In-Law as your family on facebook possible offend? Pretty soon she will be, and I think it’s great that she is reaching out, especially if not everyone has been as supportive.

I do, I figure it would happen sooner or later so I might as well go ahead and avoid the awkward “have you added me on FB yet” questions.. I have to watch what I post and what other people post pertaining to me, but if you’re uncertain about it.. why not wait until after the wedding to add her?

@SimplyChic11: Ah, gotcha. I personally would accept it, assuming that you want to become closer to her. College life can be fairly all-consuming, I wouldn’t want it to seem like she was offering an olive branch and I rejected it, you know?

Well she’s going to be your sister in law. IMO not accepting it would be rude. If is was the Future Sister-In-Law I would be hurt by that. She’s reaching out to you and I think you should accept it. They will be your family soon enough.

I don’t see the harm in just accepting. I would think it’s a good sign she asked you.

Fi’s cousin listed me as her cousin before we even got engaged I think. I’m not overly close with her, but we get along fine. She’s also college aged (20). I was just flattered that she viewed me as family.

If she’s less than supportive just customize elmenets you do and don’t want to share with her.

I am friends with my parents in law 2B and have been trying to get my Future Sister-In-Law on there too, she doesnt have a facebook, I tell her she needs one for dating (she is newly single) we are all close though.

I would totally accept….several of FI’s cousins (never met them) added me prior to the wedding. I assume they wanted to get to know me a bit better before the day.

We aren’t even engaged and I’m friends with all his immediate family (parents, sisters and husbands).  Several of them added me as a friend (Dad, Step mom and one sister and husband) and after awhile I just went ahead and added the rest (Mom, and other sister and husband).  They are a pretty close family and it seems important to them.  Heck Dad and Step mom even sent me a birthday present after only meeting me once.  I thought it was pretty sweet! And now I send his family birthday cards from me and SO.
