    I haven’t met her. She lives in Texas. Even if we don’t get along, she is pretty absent from his life, so I don’t think I’ll ever have to worry about it.

    There is tension occasionally, and I have some bitterness for a few thing that have happened, but when we’re together, we get along really well and I think she loves me like a daughter (in her own way…she’s not super warm…but she’s basically the same towards my FI).

    It used to be really bad, but she was nice enough at the wedding. It’s still really tense, but it was a lot worse. We’ll never be best friends.

    She has always made me feel welcomed from the beginning. We go to lunch sometimes and she will buy me things just because she thought it was cute.  If I need help with anything or have a question, I usually go to her.

    We are both pretty laid-back people, so I think our personalities mesh well. She also loves how happy I make her son.

    I don’t mind my Mother-In-Law in very small doses.  After about a day, I’m done though.  She’s very opinionated, has no filter, and talks nonstop.  I like the quiet sometimes.  I feel like she tries to force her opinions on us sometimes and she really needs to cut the cord with Darling Husband.  She thinks she has to be involved in every decision we make.  Drives me nuts.

    There’s some tension, but it’s just because my Fiance have been in an LDR and he plans on moving here (8 hours away from his hometown), and she’s not happy about it. She would much rather prefer we move up there and live happily ever after. She doesn’t want me taking her son away. And she doesn’t believe in love and isn’t really excited for us which makes me sad.

    I LOVE my Mother-In-Law. She’s fabulous. We get along very well. My IL’s are both fantastic people. I’m closer to them than my own family..lol

    My poor Dear Fiance is the one who inherited the crazy IL’s. My family is from another planet!

    It was really bad for a while.  But we both have made efforts and things are getting better!

    I dont like her but respect her as a person, I  dont know her  exact feelings about me but I’m guessing I’m not her favorite person either.

    She told my husbands ex girlfriend my marriage wouldnt last with him and she wouldnt be surprised if they got back together and he married her. She said I was inconsiderate when we got married cause her husbband couldnt make it up some stairs to the little chapel, she was lucky she was even invited (Since we both didnt want her there)

    all the other things are small but annoying, like the endless phone calls, endless questioning about everything that doesnt even have anything to do with  her. Shes got boundary issues

    Whenever  she sees me shes quick to talk bad about my husband, her son, and NO ONE talks about my family!

    I like not seeing her or talking to her 🙂

    We have a great relationship. In fact, my relationship with her is better than my own with my mother. I feel really luck to have my Fiance and his great family on top of that.

    I’m currently closer to my Future Mother-In-Law than to my own mother. So, I would say things with her are great, and I’m pretty lucky.
