I met my fiancé last year about this time and we started dating around Easter which is when I met both his parents. I loved them from the get Go.
We’re both in our early 20’s and at university. We moved in together after 4 weeks of dating. His parents have always been wonderful to me and I feel so lucky. He’s their only child and his mother has always commented about wanting a daughter. They’ve helped us out so much with furnishing our apartment and were thrilled for us to get engaged.
Post your stories here if you feellucky to be joining such a wonderful family. 😉

My Mother-In-Law is a sweetie who was so much more excited about me marrying her son than I had ever anticipated. She always makes a point of telling me how much she (and others!) thinks I’m just beautiful and how much her son loves me. I’ve got to try harder to be better to her and keep in touch more often, she deserves it!

My Mother-In-Law is a great woman! She has been so helpful in the wedding process and even before. My FI’s family is the complete opposite of mine, much more reserved and quiet until you get to know them so it was a huge adgustment in the beginning. After reading all of these posts about how horrible some MIL’s can be, I definitely know that I am VERY blessed!

I do feel so blessed to have my fiances parents live about 30 minutes away so we see them about once a week. My family lives 3 hours away since I’m in college.theyve definitely stepped up and have been there for me when I’ve needed a parent around lol

LOVE my Future In-Laws. I also read a lot of the complaints and feel so lucky to have a Future Mother-In-Law and Future Father-In-Law that are so supportive and helpful. On the flip side of things, my mother is the nightmare Future Mother-In-Law for my poor fiance, so that’s a little tough, but we work together to minimize the impact of her negativity. That, too, makes me realize again how lucky I am to have such great future in-laws.

Every time I read a post about people hating their FMILs, I feel a little guilty that I love mine so much! She has been welcoming and kind to me since the day I met her, and always makes comments about how they lucked out with a good daughter-in-law, and how my parents lucked out with a son-in-law (not biased at all, haha!). She recently met my mother and said that both families were so lucky. It always makes me feel so good when she says things like that!

I like my future Mother-In-Law too! She’s a sweet lady, never intrusive, and always respectful of our relationship. She’s so chill. We’ve gotten along great thus far:)

My Future Mother-In-Law is the best. When I first meet them it was during their Fourth of July picnic and I was so nervous b/c I was the first women my FI had ever brought around since his divorce. But my IL’s were so sweet and welcoming to me and my kids it was unbelievable. They have stepped in as grandparents to my kids without even blinking an eye. I must admitt that I am so blessed.

Add me to the list as a Future Mother-In-Law Lover! My Future Mother-In-Law is just the warmest, sweetest person in the world and loved me instantly, not because I’m so great (lol), but it was just enough for her son to be deliriously happy that she was, too. Now she spoils me rotten and refers to me as her “other daughter” already. It’s a good thing Fiance and I are getting hitched because I’d have a tough time not having her in my life!

Woohooo! Your wedding day is so close! I have a little more than a year. My fiance’s mother is another mother to me. I also LOVE that his mother and my mother get along and on special occasions and holidays we all find time to meet for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. They really can relate to each other and get along. I know that they constantly want grandchildren and always make us laugh. My future mother in law and I go out together every once in a while whether it is just for a run to the food store or if it is a day out shopping or just for a walk. It’s funny that she sends us cards for eveyr holiday whether it is St. Patty’s Day or Easter or even Valentine’s Day. She always calls us to make sure we are okay since we are currently at my parents’ house until after the wedding. She is amazing and I know that she loves her boy and will always be a part of my future.

I love my Future Mother-In-Law so much! She treats me very well and says things like, “My son has never had in his life what he has with you, and I’ve never seen him so happy!” She tears up when we talk about the wedding and she’s being an angel through the whole process. I feel very blessed.

I’m crazy about my FMIL! She is such a wonderful, caring and strong woman. I see her as the type of mother and wife i’d like to be some day. She only has sons so she has fully embraced me as one of her own ever since day 1. She is so incredibly thoughtful and is constantly thinking of me and surprising me with little things here and there.
When Fiance and I started dating (before I knew his parents well), I was always a little weirded out by how highly he talked about his mother–I thought I had myself a serious momma’s boy on my hands. This was until I got to know her and now I’m equally obsessed with her LOL
I’m so happy there are so many of you that love your MILs too!

I feel so privileged to have both his mother and father around. As I live so far from mine, it’s nice to have this kind of support. They are just the most generous people I have ever met. Ever.
All I know is I couldn’t ask for anything more!

I get along quite well with the future IL’s. Future Mother-In-Law & I went shopping last weekend, we hang out at wine festivals, she loves to garden & is always planting stuff in our yard, and she is in general just a really cool person. I think I talk to her more often & get along with her better than FI!!
