My husband travels a lot, so we usually go see them whenever he is home. They only live 40 minutes from us though (as do my parents). I visit my parents every Sunday unless we have something going on that weekend, so we usually see my inlaws the same afternoon if my husband is home. We are both close with our families, so I have no problem visiting once a week.

We visit Future Mother-In-Law and future stepfather-in-law at least once a week. They live in town, so we have dinner together, house sit, etc. Future Father-In-Law and future-stepmother-in-law live a few hours away and travel fairly regularly, so we see them less often…a few times a year. We visit my parents, who live 4 hours away, at least once a month. If they lived in town, we’d probably see them at least once a week.

My Future in laws, haha. We visit them about 2 tiems a month, sometiems once. We live about 45 minutes away, but we have busy schedules. I see my parents less than I see his. I’m a bit estranged from my family. 

 

I think we may keep it a consistent 1-2 tiems a month. We plan to move a few hours away right after we marry so it may change but most liekly keep it to once a month.

My husbands parents are Jehovahs Witnesses and disowned him when he left the church. We have been together four years and I’ve not spent more than an hour with them. 

My ex husband and I used to see his family maybe every three months but they did live four hours away. I would of been happy to see them fortnightly if they were closer.

We used to see them a few times a month when we lived less than an hour from them. We moved out of state last summer, so I’m excited and relieved to say that we’ll only see them two or three times a year from now on! It actually gives me a chance to miss them, whereas I used to dread all of the in-law events and outings.

peachnlello :  It used to be every week. Now it’s 1-2 times a year since we moved 3000ks away. Sad we see MIL/FIL less, but any time spend with his siblings is too much.

We live in the same small town as both of our parents, and we make an effort to ‘catch-up’ at least once a fortnight. But realistically we see them nearly everyday.

When we lived in the city (4 hours away) we would see the in-laws about once a month, my parents a little more regularly as they came to visit occasionally.

We see them at least once a week- they watch our kids once day per week. We also often have dinner with them on sundays- I’ll be honest, we see them more than I would prefer- even though they’re lovely. Conversely, we see my parents maybe 4 times per year. And that’s sufficient.

We live 45m away and probably only see them once every month or two. They text their kids (husband and BIL) quite a bit though.

We use to see them once a week but now that my Future Father-In-Law had back surgery we are living with them to help out temporarily.

Only a few times per year. Basically holidays and his mom’s birthday. I see my own parents a little more, generally at least once a month or so, can be less in winter though.

Probably a couple times a month, they live ~3h away. See my parents about once a week, would happily do the same with his if they were closer.
