(Closed) How do you really feel about your future mother-in-law?

posted 7 years ago in Reception
  • poll: How do you feel about your future mother-in-law?

    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 have been dating my Fiance for 8 years.  There have been some things that have happened in the 8 years that I have gotten very upset about (and will not post about it, but these few things are very a-typical of my family) BUT that being said, my Fiance was able to forgive and forget, so I am too.  What defines a family to me is the ability to forgive eachother for mistakes made and work past any differences you may have.  

    I voted for the second option

    @Carolsays:  She is the SWEETEST woman ever. Like a 2nd mother to me. I couldn’t have asked for a better future mother-in-law.

    Though I do wish SO wasn’t such a mama’s boy. But she spoils him, so I understand. haha

    I get along great with Future Mother-In-Law, but she is very irresponsible. She has asked for money in the past and I fear that this behavior will continue and get worse once Fiance and I are married.

    My Future Mother-In-Law and I have our ups and downs. She is very difficult to deal with and my Fiance has a hard time being around her before he gets really angry and in a bad mood. I have a better time handling her because she reminds me of my mother, just less sweet. She takes life as a “business transaction” and takes everything super seriously. Even treats her own son that way. So I have a little dismay at dealing with her for years to come, but she isn’t a terrible person so far as I know.

    None of the poll options really apply to me… 

    My Future Mother-In-Law doesn’t like me. She has barely spoken to me five times in the seven years my Fiance and I have been together. All because she doesn’t think her daughter should be with me (because I’m a girl). When my Fiance told her we were getting married, she said “I really wish you wouldn’t. But I guess I can’t stop you.” 

    Despite all that, I wish she would like me. I love her daughter and wish, for her sake, that she would be supportive. But I don’t think that will ever happen. 

    So, in short, the way I feel about her is… sad.

    She is a wonderful person, and we get along.

    However, Fiance is her only child. And lately, she’s been getting on my nerves because she’s being very judgemental for absolutely no reason.

    I absolutely, postively love my Future Mother-In-Law. She’s always been the same way with me and vice versa. She treats me like we’ve always been family and my family does the same.

    Eh, she’s ok. Voted “some reservations”.

    She’s nice enough. But she treats us a bit like children & as if we don’t know anything about anything… which can grate on me a bit (a lot). My husband just ignores it, because he’s obviously dealt with her his whole life, but sometimes I can’t handle it. We are adults and have our own life experiences!

    Part of it must be due to her other two sons (older) being “free spirits” and not taking much responsibility in life. I find it odd that she can’t seem to grasp that my husband and I are completely different people with different lifestyles… oh well.

    I would love to like and respect her, but that whole “abused my partner and his siblings” thing doesn’t lend itself well. Is the nice version. *cough*
