I love love love my Future In-Laws. they have really accepted me into the family are are more likfe family to me than my own. when i was in labor with my son it was my Future Mother-In-Law who was at the hospital with me. my dad was there too but its kinda odd to have your father there when they are doing all the “examminations” and whatnot. they treat our son amazingly well and when my dad suddenly decded all my stuff had to be out of his house and i was freaking out on where i would live they told me “you might as well just bring your clothes and stuff over here you pretty much live here anyway”. its nice to feel like i am actually a part of a family and not a bunch of people bickering all the time.

I love my Future Inlaws! They are a hilarious bunch and while they are a bit crazy, it’s a good crazy.  I always have a fun time over at his mom’s.

 I love my FILs!! I think actually Future Father-In-Law and I have said ‘love you’ more in the past year than my own dad and I have. I’m so thankful that Future In-Laws already consider me a part of their family! Even his grandparents gave me the same Christmas gift that all of the other granddaughters got last year. The last time I visited, Future Mother-In-Law referred to Future Sister-In-Law (FBILs wife) as my SIL (w/o the future part).

And sometimes I think Future In-Laws hate that we’re LDR as much as I do! Whenever there is a family event like a birthday party that I can’t attend, they’ll all text me at once letting me know they miss me; it always makes me tear up cuz I miss them too! Even his awesome 80 yr old Grandma texts me.

I’ve even told SO that even tho I think it would be really awkward to get engaged infront of my family, I would be totally fine if he proposed infront of his entire fam (*cough cough grandparents 50th anniversary cruise next summer cough cough*).

His parents are also great about offering advice without interfering with out lives. I know they want us to get married, but they’re never made me feel pressured.

Man, this is making me miss everyone! I can’t wait to see everyone next month!

Yay! I love this post!

I LOVE my boyfriend’s parents. I’ve known them for about 3 years, and they have become like true parents to me. I can talk of anything with them, and they treat me like one of their own. I respect them so much, and can only hope to be as loving as they have been when it’s my turn.

I couldn’t ask for anything more.

so Thank you for this thread ๐Ÿ™‚

Their hearts are in the right place, even when their mouths are full of vinegar. And they love my kids from my first marriage like their own grandchildren.

They let me live with them rent free for 6 months after Fiance got a job out of town and I was finishing up school. FI’s dad would make me dinner every night and we would chat about life. They have been extremely welcoming to me. I love my inlaws ๐Ÿ™‚

I love my future in-laws! They have been nothing, but wonderful to me.  Since day one I was welcomed!  In fact on our third date we went out for dinner and then went back to his parents house (where he lived at the time…less than a yr out of college) to watch a movie. His mother came in and brought us snacks! I thought it was a little wierd (i was already on my own), but its soo her.  She likes to take care of everyone.  I purchased a house last year without their son although we were living together, and I was not engaged to their son yet, but his father still came up every weekend for months to help us fix it up and finish the basement.  My father is deceased, my mother is going to walk me down the aisle, but I’m planning on asking his father to do the father/daughter dance with me. <3

Future Mother-In-Law takes me under her wing everytime we’re around her sisters. She’s been acting like this is a forever thing way before we said anything (something my parents won’t allow themselves to do), she’s fun and protective of her son but she’s protective of me too. Future Father-In-Law is just awesome, he’s fun, nice and easy to be with.

My Father-In-Law and my Fi’s entire family are amazing, I am truly blessed! We live in the UK, they live in Canada so it was nearly a year of us dating before we actually met and we came over to meet and stay with them. I was so nervous about meeting them and making a good impression but I had nothing to worry about! I was met with open arms (litterally) and smiles and they have made me feel like one of the family ever since.

Future Mother-In-Law: She sends nice food that she’s made herself and often gives us things like fruit and plants which is nice.

Future Father-In-Law: Has been more open minded about our relationship than other family members from the start.

FIs dad and stepmother are great!! They are just loving people. They raised the most amazing boys (FI and his bros) when their mother couldnt. FSMIL didnt have to do that, she did it because she loves them like her own. They are so helpful in anything that we could ask, whenever we have car trouble Future Father-In-Law is always the first one to look at it. They help us out and babysit for us almost every sat morning while Fiance and I are both at work!! They are just good people and we are thankful to have them around!

Thanks for posting it is great to hear good stories!!

My future in laws are wonderful people. They got married when she was still in high school and her parents had to give their consent as she was 17. They are still happily married today. I find them inspiring.

My future Mother-In-Law is also super nice to me and constantly tells my Fiance how happy she is that we are together. It means so much to me to that support from his family.

My Future In-Laws are pretty decent hahaha. BUT anyway….his mother is a shopaholic! She has boughten almost a quarter of my registry, which I love because I get more gifts this way. Also, I love that they are willing to help us. We had financial difficulties prior to the wedding and we ended up having to borrow $2000 from them in the course of a year. They never hesitated to let us borrow it. They are also letting us borrow their credit card for the wedding overages expenses (food and beverages, cake, and boat ride). They are VERY generous!
