My Future Father-In-Law is a very sweet man and is always so calm and reasonable. My Future Mother-In-Law has her moments but really they are not that bad. She is a really nice lady, just a little sensitive at times. She treats me as her daughter. Since I have never been overly close with my mom, it is a new experience but still nice. I have never had a problem being comfortable around them, which is a big plus. My ex-fiance’s mother was nice but made me uncomfortable at times and could be a little intense. I even went dress shopping with just my Future Mother-In-Law and she cried when I found my dress. In fact, she cried both times I tried it on. She was also very careful not to influence my decisions or as she put it “be like those horrible people on say yes to the dress.” And she bought my veil and hairpiece because she was so excited that I invited her.

  My Future In-Laws do have their hearts in the right place.

  Although Future Father-In-Law and I got along from the start, it took Future Mother-In-Law a few years to warm up to me (if I had to guess, it was warming up to the idea that her son had a girlfriend, and I think she was afraid I wouldn’t encourage him to follow his dreams). It was Christmas of FI’s first year at grad school. He lived about 5 hours away, and while the drive wasn’t too bad, I would mostly fly. For Christmas, they got me a gift certificate to an airline. That was when I realized that they were happy that I was still with Fiance, and that I want the same things for him as they do.

My in-laws have always treated my daughter from my prior marriage just like one of their own biological grandchildren.  I love them for that.

@eloping: I’m Greek! My family isn’t that similar to the movie, although…I guess they are in some ways. 🙂

My Future Mother-In-Law and Future Father-In-Law have supported me emotionally through some trying times which I will never forget. They are both kind and I feel genuine love from them…which is all I could ask for.

They also will be a HUGE help with the grandkids I think!

I’m already married, but I love my in laws! The day of the rehearsal dinner, they rented chairs and tables at the last minute (some plans fell through), and Mother-In-Law even bought beautiful rose bouquets as centerpieces. They even let us go with our crazy Q’Doba catering idea even though it wasn’t what they were expecting :). 
Throughout DH’s and I’s relationship, they’ve always been supportive and friendly. I really couldn’t ask for better in laws!

My in-laws don’t really have any negatives from my perspective. They’ve welcomed me with open arms.

My FIL’s are the greatest!!  Fiance and I have been together for 11 years, and they have treated me as part of the family since the first time we met.  They have always been 100% supportive of us, and so loving.

Future Mother-In-Law is the sweetest ever.  Our personalities are different (I am loud, she is more reserved), but she appreciates the me-ness of me, and I love that.  She is also incredibly supportive of me as a mother; which is invaluable.

Future Father-In-Law is the nicest guy in the world.  He is also a ton of fun!  His bond with Fiance now is great, and I love seeing how father and son can grow to be great friends.  He has always loved me like a daughter, and is always telling Fiance that he is lucky to have me. 🙂  I hope they know that I feel just as lucky to have Fiance.

We are blessed with wonderful family all the way around.  Love this post!!

Father-In-Law is a wonderful artist and a very interesting man to talk to. He’s very neat and doesn’t hold a grudge. He’s been very generous and forgiving with his kids.

Mother-In-Law is very unique and is being brave about a different transition period in her life. She loves her kids and has been open to finding common ground with me.

SIL caused no drama during our wedding and was generally very kind.

I love my FIs family! My Future Mother-In-Law is this amazing little thing that rides her bike all over her little town doing what ever she can to help anyonr who needs it. She was just voted citizen of the year in her home town! She loves and accepts me for who I am…and that is asking a lot! LOL

My Future Father-In-Law is very quiet I haven’t really gotten to know him but he is excatly like my Fiance. Everyone swears that they are twins born 30 years apart!

I really do like all of my FIs siblings but he has one sister that I feel the closest too. I just wish we didn’t live so far away from her.

My  FIL’s gave birth to my FH, that’s enough right there Laughing But his mom has also taken the lion’s share of the planning off my back while I’m in school and working. We have a tight deadline for the wedding and I couldn’t have done it without the extra help. Future Father-In-Law even went scouting and booked our reception site on his own! Let’s just hope the interactions for the rest of our lives go this smoothly!
