Future Father-In-Law is the type of man who will change your windhsield wipers if you mention they’re getting a little streaky. He won’t say anything about it; he’ll just go to Wal-Mart after dinner, change them, and you’ll notice it the next time it rains.
Future Mother-In-Law is the sweetest little lady. She’s super-quiet and very traditional. She saves all of Fi’s school projects and loves to tell me stories about his childhood.
I love this thread!

Future Father-In-Law is a very handy, helpful man. He likes to be able to help us out in our new home in his own way. FSMIL(step) is really supportive and bakes *amazing* desserts (she runs a bakery). Future Brother-In-Law is my favorite. 🙂 Lol. He and I are a lot alike and Fiance and FBIL’s Girlfriend are a lot alike. We are a cool group. Haha… By the way, I used way too many abbreviations in that short little paragraph.
Future Mother-In-Law and FSFIL are not ones that would go on this thread. I will say, I haven’t been around them enough to create a complete opinion even though we’ve been together for years.

My FIL’s are amazing. First of all, they made my handsome and, beautiful inside & out, Fiance. They are like my second parents. They let me move in with them and Fiance for awhile when things weren’t going great at home with my mom when I lived there. His mom takes care of me like her own daughter. They took Fiance and I on a free trip to Vegas last summer for my birthday/a fun family vacation. I could not ask for better FIL’s. I could go on forever about how wonderful they are. I feel very fortunate, especially after reading on some of these boards and seeing what some people say about theirs. It breaks my heart.

I really love my Future In-Laws too. They are really sweet and accepting of me. His mom gives me presents just like she gives her own family, even when I’m not there for Christmas/my birthday. So sweet!

My FIL’s are amazing people who accepted me into their family from day one. They are young at heart, adventurous and hilarious. I am truly blessed to be joining their family and taking on their name.

I don’t always get on with my in-laws. I don’t think they’ve ever really liked me but they’ve sort of learned to accept the fact that they wouldn’t be able to convince my fiance to give me up.
That said, this is about saying something nice… They’ve always stepped in to help support my FH whenever he has been hit by unexpected financial issues (when he lost his job they paid his share of the mortgage for six months, they’ve paid for fixing the car at times and things like that, plus they used to slip him an envelope of cash every now and then).

They’re very generous! They’re helping my family out a lot with the wedding and not asking for a single bit of control or say in anything, they are allowing me/us to choose what we love.
They are good to their friends- they have tons of friends that they’ve been close to year decades, I hope that Fiance and I are like that when we are their age!
They do a lot for him/us!

I know my future in laws aren’t perfect but I do appreciate the fact that they take care of me as if I was their daughter, despite the language barrier. Also appreciate the way that they are accepting and loving of our “son” Mochi – our papillon doggy.

My future in laws are amazing!! Ever since I started dating my fiance years ago, they have always made me feel like part of the family. I didn’t meet them for 9 months when we first started dating as they were in TX and I was up in the Northeast. During that time, his Mom sent me a Christmas present. She hadn’t even met me yet and she sent me a present! She is the sweetest woman. I feel very fortunate to be marrying into such a great family 🙂

My in-laws are fantastic. Father-In-Law is a gruff but sweet man to his kids, he truly loves them and is always there for them. My own father and I are estranged so I have loved seeing my husband and his father interact and how sweet they are together… in a very manly Southern way 🙂 My Mother-In-Law is a mama bear for her kids – she’s always been so nice to me but once she started realizing that DH and I were a team package, she stopped putting him first and started considering us a package deal and looking out for both of our future interests. I love them both 🙂

They raised the man of my dreams!!! We may have our differences, but they really are amazing parents to Fiance. They’ve always supported him 100% and put him first in their lives.

My future father in law passed away last week 🙁 Its really devastating. We’re all so sad, and he will be in our hearts at the wedding, birth of grandchildren etc.
That said, my future mother in law is amazing. And Im doing whatever I can to support her through this. She lives on the other side of the world so its hard, but I want her to feel that she’s loved and taken care of. She’s always accepted me from day one (and we are from very different cultures, so in her culture, it wouldve been the norm to not accept me and make my/our lives a living nightmare…I feel so lucky that shes so awesome). Additionally, my grandparents-in-laws are also SO wonderful and Im so lucky to be marrying into such an amazing family (considering how wonderful my fiance is, one would have to think he came from equally wonderful people :)…and he did!).

….I was always taught that if I can’t say anything nice, I shouldn’t say anything at all.

The nicest thing Mother-In-Law does is never visit.

I love love LOVE my Future In-Laws. I was just saying the other day to my FH that his parents are so fun and I love when they visit us. My fiance and I had very different childhoods and well lives prior to meeting each other. I love that his parents have been married for over 25 years and still have such a great time together. They are an inspiration for me (coming from divorced parents). They raised an amazing son and they support my FH and I in whatever we do. They take an active role in our life without stepping on our toes and always willing to give either of us advice if we ask. I literally couldn’t ask for a better family to be marrying into. His mom is so indearing and fun to be around. She is girly and easy to talk to. His dad is goofy and clumsy (my FH is as well) and very comforting. Yay for amazing Future In-laws!!!
