    LOVE my Future Mother-In-Law & Future Father-In-Law but his sister is a total BRAT!!!!! Spoiled rotten which is the opposite of me.  She’s 27 and still cries like a baby for attention! Even he knows it so it helps keep me calm, but sometimes I just want to smack her in the face.  She calls her mother names and tells her she haters her – mind you she still lives at home lol. TROLL!

    I’ve met the IL’s once, at our wedding. They live so far away and I don’t really talk to them ever. So I don’t really have an opinion.

    In the middle, love my Future Father-In-Law but can’t stand being around FMIL! They are not together and live miles and miles away from each other. I like having Future Father-In-Law come and visit some weekends but when Future Mother-In-Law comes down it’s for at the very least a week and she knows no privacy boundaries! We spend the next month looking for everything she’s “tidied away”. She also brings out the worst in my Fiance, she just pushes the right buttons with him within the first few hours being here!

    My future Mother-In-Law is a sweet woman but has a tendency to talk over people. I like all my future siblings-in-law. They’re very very nice people. Nerdy and quirky as hell, but really quite lovely.

    Lets just say, Fiance got the better end of the deal.

    I like his parents. They are nice people. But I don’t know if I’m at the point (yet) where I would consider them to be like my Second parents. especially my dad. No one comes close to being like my dad. He’s an awesome father who would do anything for me and my brother and not too many dads compare. and my mom is like my best friend. So no other mom can compare to her in my eyes. My fiancé’s mom is wonderful, and I like her, but I love my mom and could do anything with her. we go shopping together, go to the beach, out to lunch, etc.

    Absolutely ADORE them! They truly are like my parents, his siblings too… and grandparents and aunts and uncles.. I’ve even stayed at their house several times without my fiance and it’s not awkward in the slightest. His mom and I get along like mother and daughter, call eachother/text each other all the time.. His dad is my dentist (thats saying something letting your (future) father in law poke around your mouth!) All in all I couldnt ask for a better family to be joining.

    Depends on the day. Some days I HATE them. and HATE is not too strong a word. Other days “they are just ok, but we don’t really click.”

    It’s not that we fight or anything, there is just something about them that just IRKS me so. They are really different than me, and my Fiance. I often times ask my fiance how those are possibly his parents. THey are just so different. Different values, different manners, just different.

    He responds that he went to boarding school his entire childhood haha. That’ll do it I suppose!

    My Future In-Laws have always been really welcoming to me, even when I first met them when I started dating their son. Since meeting them, they let me live with them for a month since I’m from a different country than them, they’ve also helped pay for SO to visit me in my home country not once, but twice in the past year! Now they’re welcoming me into their home for the Christmas holidays after SO was with my family last year. Future Sister-In-Law is a different case since she’s got a lot of disabilities, but she loves me and I her – she seems to believe that when I visit, I’m there to see her, and not SO. 🙂
