Just wondering what the rough average is for the quality of people’s relationships with their in-laws. My SO’s parents are very lovely, laid-back and generous people who I get on with very well, but then again my SO and I live an ocean apart from them, so who knows what my relationship with them would be like if we saw them all the time. What would be more interesting to me is how my SO feels about MY parents, because they’re both a bit crazy (in a good way, I’d like to think). Luckiiy he’s pretty chilled out and likes everyone, but I kind of fear the carnival that will be the day our parents meet. Anyway… feel free to share.

I have a wonderful relationship with both my Mother-In-Law and Father-In-Law. They are wonderful, generous, caring people who welcomed me to the family with open arms. 🙂 I love them both dearly! Like you, we are an ocean away from them, but I don’t think that would change if we were there instead of here. I lived in their house for nearly 6 months before getting married, and it was just like my family.

My Future Father-In-Law is a great person and I get along with him very well, but my Future Mother-In-Law is an wretch who Fiance, Future Father-In-Law, and I all agree is best not having an active role in our lives. She won’t be attending our wedding.

Future Mother-In-Law and I get along great, she’s really sweet and nice and when Fiance told her he was going to propose she said I was a good choice. I have only met Future Father-In-Law twice (he lives in another state for most of the time) but he’s been nice both times I met him.

They are very nice and great people. We do have different beliefs and thoughts and they are pretty close minded. I keep the peace and we get along. Like I said, they are great people and I do like them…

I love them to pieces! Sometimes they annoy me, but then again so does my own family. =P

Future Mother-In-Law – extremely good relationship
Future Father-In-Law – extremely poor relationship (FI hasn’t spoken with his father in months)

- Wedding: June 2014 - Ontario, Canada ♥ EDD- April 2016
They are really nice people and we have a good relationship. My Fiance and I started dating the summer before our senior year of highschool and the relationship was kind of more rocky back then because they were annoyed with Fiance for partying and for spending money on our dates. Then I think they realised I was a good influence and that I wasn’t going anywhere and my relationship with them relationship has improved a lot from there. Although they’re not show their emotion type of people so I’m not sure if we’ll ever get really really close.

I’m really blessed to be joining a great family. They were always so accepting of me. My Future Mother-In-Law and I work in the same field so we “shop talk” all the time. Plus, she has only brothers and only sons, so she kinda spoils me and FBIL’s girlfriend.

ARGH the poll is being stupid and not letting me vote lol. But I have a great relationship with my Future Mother-In-Law and at this point its better than with my mother!!! (wedding planning crap getting in the way).
Sadly I never managed to meet my FH’s father, he passed away 5 years ago but from the stories i have heard about him I guarentee that we would have gotten along well.

I would say I have a fairly good relationship with Future Mother-In-Law and a neutral relationship with Future Father-In-Law. FFIL for a while gave off a vibe that he didn’t approve of me. It’s just recently that our relationship is heading in a positive direction.

I have great relationships with both of them. I feel so blessed to have my Fiance in my life and his great parents.

I’m very fortunate. I adore my Mother-In-Law and have a great relationship with her! I’m not very close to my Father-In-Law, but we have a friendly relationship.

My inlaws are great. Very kind and generous people who are easy to get along with and just very nice people. We see them all the time because they live nearby. That being said, I don’t think we’ll ever be close.. there’s sort of a distance and level of formality there that precludes me from saying we have an “extremely” good relationship. Though I am hoping that changes with time, and even if it doesn’t I count myself lucky 🙂

I voted “fairly good” for both. 🙂
