No relationship, with almost all of them.

Father-In-Law died 6 months before our wedding. He was an incredibly sweet man, but really controlled, by his wife. I wrote the Mother-In-Law out of my life 7 years ago, after 30 years of married. I hit 50 and declared I’m allergic to BS. She’s a toxic elder, plays favorites, and everything has to be her way.

SIL – eh? Hubby talks to her a few times a year and we exchange birthday cards and such. We don’t get along with her husband and they’re a team. They stayed over at our house and I caught him walking around during the night naked. And then he insulted my family in a very public F/B post. I try to maintain an e-mail relationship with their adult children, although the one’s spouse I’ll never meet. The other – we all love the spouse.

Brother-In-Law – have no relationship with him. He and my husband exchange happy birthday e-mails annually, and that’s it. He’s only called 3 times, in the last 12 years, and that was only to ask to borrow our vacation home. I’ve never met his one child – now 11.5 and probably never will. Glad to have written his wife out of my life 12 years ago, when they moved across the country. She’s a person no one else can stand and everyone complains about her constantly, but I don’t believe anyone has told her off – they just put up with it narcissim and histrionics.  

Luckily he has a small family and no-one lives close. We lucked out with my family and some close friends, who are more like family to us, than his will ever be.

I am extremely close to my furture mother in law. I moved 2 hours away from my family to be with her son and she has helped me so much adjust to life in a new town. She is extremely supportive of both of us and I can tell her anything. She doesn’t judge me at all. I am actually her maid of honor in her wedding this August ( I even helped her find her future husband) . We love each other so much. I am a lot closer to her then my SO is. 

My SO isn’t close with his dad (parents are divorced), he isn’t a common presence  in his life so I have no relationship with him really. 

I am not close to my SO brother but his girlfriend and I are devolpng a close relationship which I am sure will help my relationship with him. I personally don’t like him but the girl he has in his life is starting to show me a different side of him so I am happy about that.

My future’ wife’s mother is fucking overbearing bitch who can’t let my future wife go and live her life with me.  My future and her mother are too fucking close in my opinion.
