My Mother-In-Law is super sweet, caring, and helpful, but man is she opinionated! I have learned to accept what I know. I know that she’s going to offer an opinion about everything whether I asked for it or not and she knows that I am going to politely listen and then do what works for me anyway. Lol. Overall I think she’s awesome though, both before and after the wedding and wouldn’t trade her for the world.

slinktobee:  Your Future Mother-In-Law sounds lovely!  My Mother-In-Law is amazing too, we’ve been really close since day 1, I can tell her anything and I am very grateful for her friendship and affection. I think getting married to her son really cemented the fact that we are family now and we want to get through things together. Sounds like your relationship is very much the same!

slinktobee:  With so many changes that come with a wedding and the huge build up, it can be a bit like ‘what’s on the other side?!’ The more time passes, the stronger you guys will be and the more confident/relaxed you’ll become. I think it’s wonderful that you care about your FI’s family, that they’re v important to you. I have to say that for me and DH, wanting that bond with each other’s families has seen us through a lot!

I mean… no one’s gonna come on here and post when their Future Mother-In-Law is super great. The people posting about their horrible FMIL’s make it seem like it’s super common, but it’s really not. I can’t think of a single married person I know IRL that doesn’t get along with their in-laws. My Future Mother-In-Law is a doll, she’s wonderful, sometimes I think she loves me more than Fiance (lol), and she’s been nothing but sweet and helpful during the wedding planning process. I don’t think you have anything to worry about 🙂

My Mother-In-Law is great. Both my parents-in-law are great, actually. They are supportive and welcoming yet still hands off. They are busy living their own lives, but they love their family a whole lot. I’ve only been married a few months, but my relationship with them hasn’t changed really. Your Future Mother-In-Law sounds lovely!

I LOVE my ex-mil… I was married to my ex-h for 10 years and we have been divorced for 10 years.  She still treats me just like her daughter and will be at my upcoming wedding.

My Future Mother-In-Law is lovely and will be making my dress, she welcomed me into family. Don’t worry they are not all dragons. My dads mum was an amazing Mother-In-Law to my mum, they would drink coffee chat and watch dallas even tho my mum and dad got divorced my granny loves my mum sees my mum as a close friend. she is also very opinionated. To get to the point dont worry she sounds lovely.

My Mother-In-Law is awesome.  We got married in DH’s home town, where she and Father-In-Law still live, and she came venue hunting with me.  She was SO anxious not to step on my toes she actually offered to stay in the car (of course I said not to, I wanted her to come into the venues with me!).  I’ve been welcomed into the family from day one, and that hasn’t changed since we got married.

I’m really close with my Mother-In-Law, and totally and completely adore her….and our relationship actually got even stronger after the wedding since I *officially * became family.

MILs aren’t all horrible. I think it’s just a stereotype mostly based off fairy tales. I mean, yes there are horrible MILs, but there are also just horrible people in general. My Mother-In-Law is lovely, kind, and generous. You’re so lucky to get the mother you never had! Cherish your relationship.

I love my Mother-In-Law. And all of my FI’s family, the only person I don’t like is his brothers wife.
I am always respectful and am/was very polite so I built a good relationship with them. My wedding is pretty far away but she’s been very nice about everything so far.

Sometimes I think people think other’s don’t know when you don’t like them. They do. Like if you find your In-laws super annoying or whatever, and just because you don’t blantently eyeroll in front of them doesn’t mean they can’t tell. That causes problems. I think that’s a common cause for in-law problems.
