That is disappointing, though I think it’s good that you realize it now so you aren’t marrying into the family and wondering why you feel bummed or off when you do interact with her.

You’re not alone. I’ve been married 4 years and my inlaws have never made an effort to get to know me. I’ve stopped trying and adjusted to having friends as family. Choose your own family, there are so many great people out there who will be there because they care about you not because they feel obligated to by blood.

You’re not alone…sort of. My Future Mother-In-Law is wonderful – but FI’s brother and sister are really difficult to be around. I always wanted a big family – always wanted a brother (love my only sister dearly – she’s my Maid/Matron of Honor, but like, wish there was a few more of her). They never make an effort. In fact I don’t really remember a time where I’ve said something and Future Sister-In-Law hasn’t sneered in my face…. they never make an effort, are never kind. Future Brother-In-Law refuses to be FI’s Groomsman. Just really average human beings. -_- I think disappointing in-laws are the hallmark of marriage. I handled it by moving 3,000ks away from them.
