    I love my in laws. They are my family! Given I am sure I wouldn’t want to spend everyday with them, just like I wouldn’t my own family. But I do really love them and they are great people!

    I love my in-laws.  They are the best, and we get along famously.  Fiance’s parents are really special folks, and I’m so lucky to know them and have them adopt me into their family

    If my previous engagement had gone through, I could have been able to sympathize with the agony of tough in-laws… but i dodged a bullet and won the in-law lottery.  Of course, one could say I paid my dues!

    I actually DO LOVE my in laws. I couldn’t wish for a sweeter Mother-In-Law and Father-In-Law. My SILs are THE BEST in the world. I survived living with one of my SIL and her husband + kids, and I was so blessed because those times actually really built our relationship and made the process of me getting into my husband’s family even smoother.

    I like them….I don’t know if I could say I love them. They are very nice people and have never been anything but nice and welcoming to me.

    I LOVE my Mother-In-Law and SIL. I like my Father-In-Law. He’s just a little on the strange side for me. But really they’re all great and they’ve taken me into their family! I even call my Mother-In-Law and Father-In-Law mom and dad because they really are like parents to me! I’ve heard horror stories of In-Law relationships and I am blessed to have in-laws that are great!

    My Future Mother-In-Law can be a bit of a pain, and it took me a while to realize that the reason she acts the way she does is because she has crippling anxiety, and her worrying makes her come off as somewhat nagging.  Now that I know about her anxiety, I can deal more easily with the worrying and nagging, and we have a very good relationship.

    I go back and forth. Recently Future Mother-In-Law has been wonderful, basically ever since she came out to visit her son and me in the new city we’ve lived in for the past year. This was a total (but welcome!) shock to me that she’s interested in me and can carry on a conversation with me. She also seems happier about the upcoming marriage. I hope things get and better with her.

    On the other hand, Future Sister-In-Law has been a pain lately. When I first met her, I thought she was normal and sweet and fun. But since then she seems to have some personal problems that are bringing me down, and I want to make sure she’s comfortable with everything that’s going on but I can’t understand some of the things she does in her personal relationships and I can’t really empathize when I disapprove.  Maybe she’ll develop some sense soon ("grow up") and be the nice, fun girl she seemed to be on the surface.

    my family and i are super close, so it’s hard to accept that i’m not super close to my fi family.  i like them…but it’s just not the same.  are any of you having trouble with the tought of having to call your in-laws "mom" and "dad"?

    I love ’em all. If I go too long without seeing them I start to miss them.

    I actually like my Future Mother-In-Law and Future Father-In-Law. While they are different I enjoy their company. I actually really don’t feel very close to my Future Brother-In-Law (FI’s one and only brother) and his wife. They are very nice and all, but I just don’t really have anything in common with them. In general, FI’s family is very nice but I don’t think I will ever really see them as family though.

    I found that it was hard to learn another family’s dynamics and communication styles and to adjust to them because I know my family and how we operate…but my in laws are lovely people and also, they’re family. I love my Fiance and after all, they raised him so they can’t be all that bad! Of course, they want a harmonious relationship with their FDIL too so as long as both sides make the effort it should be ok. There are times I feel like they’re going to make me lose my mind but that also happens with my own family.

    I like my inlaws.  Fiance and I made an agreement early on to allow each other to deal with our respective families and 5 years later, so far so good.  Now, I am not sure what will happen when we marry or if we have kids, but things are good now.  We live in the same city as his parents and they give us plenty of space, which is good for me.  I know a lot of friends who have awful relationships with their husband’s mom so I feel blessed.
