    I absolutely LOVE my in-laws too! They’re the greatest. His mom and dad already treat me as one of the family. They were both ecstatic when we got engaged. I am super close to his sisters. We all spend a lot of time together. I feel fortunate to be marrying into such an amazing family!

    I love my Future Mother-In-Law and Future Father-In-Law.  His mom is the sweetest thing and has always been so good to me.  I didn’t meet his dad right away (divorced parents, he didn’t speak to his father for over 3 years), but when I did, he just grabbed me and hugged me.  I feel very blessed.  Future Mother-In-Law and I even had a conversation about crazy in-laws and she said this to me.  “If my son loves you and you treat him well, why shouldn’t I love you, too?”  She loved me from the moment I met her because she knew that I loved her son.  That was enough for her.  His whole family treats me as one of their own and I’m so thankful and very blessed.

    I’m in between “LOVE THEM” and “They’re okay…” His parents are wonderful and very sweet. His brother just graduated high school so he can be slightly annoying but overall is really fun to be around. His grandma lives with his parents and is sweet but doesn’t really speak English so I just kind of say hi to her and move on. His nephew is the cutest little chunkster ever though!

    His sister… Well she has some growing up to do ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love my in-laws! After 20 years of not having parents, it’s great to be someone’s “kid” again. I love my new aunts, uncles and cousins! My brother-in-laws are ok, but their wives are real snots. Don’t care – I only see them at family dinners.

    In my first marriage, I loved my in-laws.  In fact, my ex-husband and I joke that I got his parents in the divorce, and he got mine.  (And we both know that I was the lucky one on that deal.)

    I have never met NotFroofy’s family.  She cut off contact with them many years ago.  I have had some brief e-mail correspondence with them, but I have to be very careful.

    I love my FILs!! They are wonderful people and very supportive of Mr.TKE and me. The are the craziest loonies I have ever met, but honestly, I wouldn’t have it any other way!

    My FI’s family are mostly good but he has a brother who is really trashy and his dad and dad’s new family (parents are divorced) are not always as nice as they profess to be. I love his grandmother and his aunt and uncle to death!

    I definately love them. We’re in to different things, and we have very different personalities, but they’ve accepted me from day one!

    Actually, the first family function I attended as the Girlfriend I was introduced as “the other daughter” haha.

    sometimes i feel as though fis family doesnt like me… they have never said or done anything mean… its just that i get that ‘vibe’ and my intuition is very good…. so yea. also i think the fact that fi and my family are soooooo close makes my relationship with his family seem inadequate.
