Tonight my SO went to go see his family for the second time this week. I was going to go, but honestly I am tired from work and wanted to relax some by myself at home. Plus we went to see them already earlier in the week, so I didn’t feel the need to go see them again. Of course my SO feels differently and was a little bummed I didn’t go along with him. But my family all live 2,000 miles away and seeing his family constantly sometimes makes me realise just how much I do miss them. But even if they did live 10 minutes away like his do, I still wouldn’t see them more than like 4 times a month probably. So how many times do you see your in laws and do you think my boyfriend is being a bit excessive in his visits?

None, they live on the other side of the country!

@AirForceWife78: Sometimes I wish mine did, haha. I’ll add that as an option.

We see both of our families upwards of 5 times a month, but neither of us feels obligated to see each others family every single time we visit. He’s fine with it if he goes to see his parents alone and I’m fine with it if he doesn’t come with me to see mine. 🙂

Well, I am over their house everyday, but I think I actually SEE them once a week. They know I am there though, I’ll bring milk, or cookies or soda over for them.

My vote was for 5 to 8 times but when you changed the poll options it moved my vote to 1 to 4!

Living with them at the moment. So every.single.day….
Don’t get me wrong, we’re greatful and it’s really helping us save for bar exam expenses and a down payment. Just some days are harder than others!

1-4 times a month. But mostly his mom comes here. His parents were having issues and my Fiance doesn’t want to deal with his dad and can’t understand why his mom is still putting up with his dads bs. So she comes to see us because we enjoy each others company but Fiance doesn’t like to go there anymore.

DH’s parents live 5 minutes from us, so we visit them about 3 times a week, so definitely more than 8 times a month. We used to live with them, too. I don’t mind because I love them to pieces!

Mr.ND still lives in his folks’ basement, so when I visit him, I see them. With our dance lessons mid-week, I think I spend 4-5 nights a week there. Like @Mrs.Elivs: said, it’s great for bills, but I think the space after we’re married when we’ve got our own place will be great for the NDBee-IL relationship 😉

Once maybe twice every 2 months. Definitely more than I see my mom.

We go over there for dinner twice a month on average.
I wouldn’t say your bf is visiting excessively….I’m very close to my family, too. I prefer when my Fiance comes with me, but he doesn’t always have to.

I see them about once every 2 months. They live an hour from me, as opposed to 30 min from my SO– so SO sees them about 1-2x per month without me.

We see our relatives and inlaws maybe once per year. Neither of us is interested in seeing them more often than that. We speak to our own folks on the phone probably once a month and email them more often.

We usually see my mother once a week and his mom either every week or every other week. My mom lives pretty close so it’s easy to see her. His mom lives farther upstate so we may not go every week.
His father lives really far so we almost never see him. I’m very happy about that. So is Fiance.
