    I like and respect her. I think we will get along great!

    Some reservations, but I think we will manage to get along.

    It bothers me somewhat that I'll have to deal with her for years to come.

    I hate that woman!

    I wish she was my mom. :<

    She’s incredibly sweet, and very supportive of her children and all around an awesome example of a person.

    I love her & call her mom.  She doesn’t feel that I’m taking her place.  She knows that I love her son in a differeby way.  She respects me & appreciates how I love & support her son.

    I love my mother-in-law! In fact, I adore all of my future in-laws. Future Mother-In-Law is a LOT like me, lol.

    My biggest fear was my Mother-In-Law not liking me. My fiancé and his mom are very close, so I felt somehow as if I was ”stealing” him from her. She also has very strong opinions about everything and she can be bitchy (beware if she doesn’t like someone …). Needless to say, I was extremely nervous when I met her. But you know what ? I love that woman ! She and I get along fine. I knew she actually liked me when I started saying silly things one day and she couldn’t stop laughing. Then, it was her birthday and I cooked her dinner at her house. She was so surprised and happy she told everybody on the phone who called her to wish her a happy birthday that her son’s girlfriend had cooked dinner and that nobody has ever cooked for her ! 

    As for the ”bitchy” side, turns out we litterally have the same humor (sarcasm, and sometimes bitchy), and even though we both have strong personalities, it works: most of the time we agree on things. When we visit FI’s parents, he sometimes go help his father with something, and me and my Future Mother-In-Law drink coffee, or wine, and talk or watch TV together, and we both comment massively when we watch something and we make each other laugh. We have a lot in common.

    @Carolsays:  My Future Mother-In-Law has done a lot for us and in general we get along great. That being said, its hard to get over how obviously she treats her other two sons better than my Fiance. Everyone in the family always comments on it (she and my Future Father-In-Law took out loans for two of the three kids colleges, the other two get tvs and video games while my Fiance gets socks and underwear as presents ect.) My Fiance (while bitter about the school thing since they LIED and told him they were paying and then signing loans in his name) generally doesn’t care and gets along with his parents so I do as well and like I said in everday life they are awesome!

    Now that we are married and I am her DIL she has become a lot nicer to me…not that she was mean before, but she is now more willing to spend time with me, if that makes sense! However, my DH doesn’t really get on with her and I don’t agree with some of the things she says/expects of him….especially when he is  now married, has a full time job and lives a distance from them. I am always nice and polite to her but I will always side with my DH when she has unreasonable requests…when he is being dramatic I try and help him see it from her POV.

    I love my future mother-in-law. She’s super sweet and is nicer to me than my own mother is! I live on the other side of the country from my parents, and when we do talk on the phone or see each other (which is not often), all they do is criticize me and make me feel like crap. My own mother judges me on the way I dress, my career choices, the lack of a degree in higher education (because a bachelor’s degree isn’t enough)…this list goes on and on. My future mother in law says, “I just want you to be happy.” I can’t wait to get married!!!

    I wish I could have known my Mother-In-Law but, unfortunately, she passed away before I ever met my husband.  In fact, both of his parents passed before we met.  From the things he’s told me I’m fairly certain we would have gotten along quite well.  🙂

    I absolutely adore her!  We live several hours away, so we don’t spend an awful lot of time together, but I’m always super stoked when i hear she may be coming to town, or when we have a chance to go visit.
