I have a good relationship with my in laws and generally like them.  There are certain things or qualities  about them that I may not love; but thanks to a little luck and a little work nothing that negatively affects our relationship.  I seriously feel so terrible for those who don’t get along with their in laws, can only imagine what type of stress that would cause in a marriage.

I love mine. They’re very different from my family, but they are incredibly loving and would bend over backwards to help their kids. They are good about respecting boundaries too.

I’d say I love my in-laws like my own family. They piss me off sometimes, and I don’t always agree with them, but at the end of the day I think they’re good people, who I care about very much, and enjoy spending time with (….most days).

My FH’s parents are both gone, he was a later in life baby and he’s also 48. So I don’t have in-laws. I had in-laws from hell in both my daugther’s father and my ex-husband, so it sounds petty but it’s a huge relief for me to not have an issue again.

My mom has an amazing relationship with her ex in-laws(my paternal grandparents). She jokes she got rid of the husband and kept them. They’re amazing people, my step-dad, adores my grandma.

She couldn’t sleep when we were at my sister’s wedding and was sat on her balcony enjoying the mountains, he woke up saw her out there(from their room) and went and made her a cup of coffee the way she liked and kept her company while they watched the sunrise in the mountains. 

I think their amazing relationship ill-prepared me for having malicious boundary stomping crazy people as in-laws.

kmmq72 :  I like my in-laws and I can see they are truly good people. They live interstate, so we don’t  see them so often. Having said that after a two week visit I’m ready to go home or send them back! 😅 They do stuff that shits me to tears but its never personal, just annoying and exasperating!

 I’m actually thankful that they let their son go freely and allowed him to not feel the pull of of home. (He moved states for me) A lot of parents would make their kids feel guilty in a way for moving far away. They’ve always been really supportive of us and our relationship. They’ve always told him I’m great for him and put his happiness before their own. I’m sure its not easy knowing that you won’t see your kid and grandkids as often as you like. I’ve been really lucky and I’m so thankful that they raised such a wonderful man that I get to spend the rest of my life with.

I love them! My Mother-In-Law is so sweet and generous, and my Father-In-Law is hilarious.

I like mine! 

My husband has a strained relationship with his mother. Basically, she wasn’t a good mom but they are totally fine now. But she lives about 6 hours away so I just text and talk to her on the phone. And unfortunately, I never got to meet my father-in-law as he passed away quite a few years before I met my husband. But my husband has always been very close to his aunt and uncle and we both consider them more of his parents. Without their guidance throughout his rough childhood, I don’t know where’d he’s be today. I love them to death and am known to hang out when them when my husband is at work! Haha.

I like the in-laws. They’re decent people. His mom was a huge support behind buying our home. It hasn’t been 100% smooth sailing but I’m really grateful they’re a good family.

I love mine! The very first time I met them, I spent three days living in the dad and stepmom’s house with my guy’s mom, his sister, and her husband. We had actually only been dating for about a month at that time. They were all so sweet to me and got along really well together (even the mom and stepmom)! I’m not close with my own parents at all, but my dude’s parents are great and I love spending time with them. Literally the only issue I’ve had is that they are sometimes *too* generous.

I like my in-laws. My Father-In-Law is one of the sweetest, most gentle people I know. He’s very quiet but just has a sparkle in his eye and a sly sense of humor that I love. My mil can be difficult sometimes, but she’s a good person at heart and lives halfway across the world so that serves as a good buffer lol.

I love my in-laws. They welcomed me with open arms and are so kind and sweet to me. Father-In-Law brings me birthday cards and Mother’s day cards every year, which is more than my own parents do. 

While there are almost always some family dynamics issues within families, my husband’s family is close and fun and very loving. 

My former in-laws with my ex, I really liked his dad/step-mom and siblings. I felt like they were my own family. His mother on the other hand was a freaking train wreck, psychopath and we did not get along at all.

I love love love my in laws. I’ve felt like I belonged ever since the first day I met them. But part of that I think is due to the fact that my husband used to be a little troublemaker, so they always make jokes about how “lucky he is that he found a nice girl”. I feel so comfortable with my in laws and they’ve welcomed me as if I was their own kid. I can be myself and joke more around them than I can with my own family usually! I count myself very lucky, I don’t think I’ve ever dated anyone who’s parents didn’t like me.. that would probably be a deal breaker for me.
