Mine is wonderful. I get along with her better than I do with my own mom.

I never met mine as she died from cancer when my DH was only in his early 20s so i can never really relate to all the in law stories as his dad lives in a different country and has re-married with new babies and we rarely hear from him.

Yes!!! I get along so well with both my mother and father in law. Everytime I read stories on here about awful in laws I feel so thankful to have married into such a wonderful family. And my husband feels the same way about my family, so we are both just really fortunate.

Love my in laws! They are just wonderful people and always made me feel welcome. I have known my husband for 7 year and been married for almost 2 years. So I have really gotten to known them. For the past month or so now my Mother-In-Law and I have been taken yoga classes together and it has been fun. So it has been a fun bonding time.

My Future Mother-In-Law is the mom I wish I’d gotten to have. She’s such an awesome woman and she’s always treated me like family.

I divorced my 1st husband 18 years ago and stil pick up the phone and giggle for hours with his mother. I love that little lady. My 2nd husband’s parents were deceased. I missed having a Mother-In-Law but his brothers and sisters are more than awesome. 2nd hubby passed away 5 years ago and his family still remembers to include me in everything – reunions, holidays, parties, etc…  and they are very active with my children. They’re at all the games, school productions, track meets (even for the children I had with my 1st hubby…lol). Current Fiance…sigh…he’s a parentless bastard who I’m sure was spawned in a pumpkin patch (can u tell I’m a little salty with him right now?)

Beasha:  I absolutely adore my future mother-in-law.  Fiance said that first time she’s ever seen a picture of me was on his phone one evening when I called and he had left his phone on the dining room table at his parents house she told him, “She is beautiful.” She’s the most patient, loving, non-judgemental, thoughtful, giving Future Mother-In-Law I have ever met.  She’s very observant as well and if she sees something I wear A LOT of (life a scarf) she will go out and have a new scarf nicely wrapped as a gift for me!  Or if she hears me or fiance make a comment about something we like she will go out and hunt down exactly what it is that we like and purchase it for us.  We’ve never asked her for anything nor will we ever but it’s her big heart of compassion and love for others that really has me a little protective of her as she can be so vulnerable.

Yes and I am so lucky because my Mum passed away 12 months ago. My Mother-In-Law won’t ever replace my Mum who I miss dearly but she is a lovely support and a will be a fabulous grandma

Me, count me in. I love, love my mother in-law.

MIL is very nice to me, I talk to her alot. She is understanding too….. She also teaches me how to cook some of her culture food, and she tell me about her culture…. She HUGS me ALOT too. I guess this is a good thing.

I think I score some points from leave her good impression on me…. When me and my husband were dating. I use my own working money to buy her grocery. Help her wash dishes, help her clean, etc…

When I date my husband, I was struggling with my Chinese mother who disapprove him due to he is not Chinese. I was so scare that if his mother find out, she will get pissed off and told him to stop seeing me….. But Nope, Mother-In-Law was very understanding, when I explained it to her, she didn’t care about my mother’s ignorant. What she care about was I truely love her son…. This, she knows. We live in the same neighborhood, and I was friends with my husband for 2 years prior to dating, so she does know about me. I think she can tell that I love him.

I married my husband with nothing. Without an engagement ring, without a wedding reception, without a honeymoon…. In defense of my husband, it was all my insist. I don’t need any of that, all I want/need is him— Mother-In-Law know this….. It was also part of me trying to make up for my ignorant’s mother….. Even till today; deep down inside me, I still beat myself up for it.

Mother-In-Law was a witness at our City Hall/Courthouse ceremony, so for sure I have her permission to married her son…. She and my husband is all I have left now. I pretty much get disown by my Chinese family.

Change the mood, what funny is I find myself so hard to say all the lovey dovey words to my husband/confess I love him…. I married him, so I’m sure he knows I love him; but I still struggle with trying to confess my love to him, Lol!!…. But then when it come to my mother in-law, I have no problem talking out my feelings to her, like how much I love her son, etc… Prffffffff!! What is wrong with me? Lol!!
