    I consider myself blessed.  I get along with his mother better than he does.

    I love my in-laws. They are warm, welcoming, loving people. And not just DH’s parents, but his brothers, their wives, his aunts and uncle, all of them are amazing people. I come back from visiting them completely relaxed and recharged. I totally hit the in-law jackpot.

    I absolutely adore my FH’s family. They are a little more conservative than I am and the way I was raised, but it is part of who they are and I am okay with that. They are very, very sweet and kind people.

    I feel so lucky, because before FH, my ex-SO’s parents HATED me. They were very well off and couldn’t handle the fact that my family was middle class. They would make fun of my mother’s house and even tried to set my then-SO up with a rich friend’s daughter! That was the beginning of the end for us. I’m super family oriented, so I couldn’t handle being with someone whose family didn’t approve of me or our relationship. It’s awful, and my heart goes out to anyone who is willing to try it!

    My in-laws are absolutely wonderful. I would rather spend time with them than with my family 🙂

    I LOVE my Future Mother-In-Law and her husband and despise my Future Father-In-Law.  🙂

    I looooooooooooove my in-laws! Most of the family is great besides one crazy aunt and one of DH’s stepsister, but my mother-in-law try to avoid them as much as possible so we don’t see them much.

    I wish I liked them (FI doesnt like them either) His mother is OVERLY judgemental and RUDE. and his father is a PERVERT who I dont like being around let alone having my children around. I still to this day cant figure out how Fi turned out so great!

    how about “sometimes” or “for the most part”? ’cause that would be me! LOL!  sometimes I like ’em, sometimes I want to throttle my Future Mother-In-Law.  so far, I like my Future Father-In-Law ALL the time!  

    He has one sister who I like, except for her crappy parenting style (and yes, even my Fiance and FStep-son agree with me on this, as well as other relatives on HIS side).  His other sister I Love and I adore his younger brother.  

    My Fiance, however, likes my dad and can’t stand my mom… which isn’t surprising because I sometimes want to torture my mother before killing her…… yeah, I’m not a good daughter 😉

    I voted for I like them, but I dont LOVE one SIL. She is nice, has a good heart, but at the same time is spoiled, whiney and demanding. I try to remember the good qualities, but her not so good ones win too often.

    When she came to visit I liked her more. I think she has her own issues/demons with her position in the family and it comes out more when she is around them and her family feeds into it. Unfortunately mostly I am around her with them.  The other sister is nice. No issues there, but not great friends either. Broher same. Get along well with Mother-In-Law and Father-In-Law

    I lucked out and managed to score awesome in laws. Fiance and I have been together for more than 6 years and they’ve considered me apart of their family since basically the beginning. I feel bad for those with heinous IL’s. One of my best friends is one of them and her Mother-In-Law is hooooorible. She always asks me to trade. Like that’s gonna happen!

    I absolutely LOVE my in-laws! They are (and have always been, for the past 5 years) my second family.  I don’t get along with my mom very well and FI’s mom is great!  I mean, I love my mom, but she drives me absolutely crazy sometimes.

    I think, for me, its the fact that FI’s parents love me/care about me/treat me as their own daughter AND THEY DON’T HAVE TO.  That’s why its so special for me.  He is an only child, so I guess I am the ‘daughter they never had.’ Even though they love us to death, they still give us our privacy and let us be our own little family unit.  Its a nice balance.

    I feel very lucky after reading some of the stories from other Bees sometimes.
