My Future Mother-In-Law has welcomed me into her family with open arms from the very beginning.  She tells me she loves me (and told me that, like, the third time I ever met her, which was kind of awkward) and that she thinks of me as a daughter, not a daughter in law.

I actually am not that close to her – we live 2000 miles away and we don’t have a lot in common. But I am super grateful that she has been so kind and welcoming.

Mine gave me some horse treats for my bunnies that they love. I was skeptical of them at the time but she insisted (she always insists) and I’m glad I just took them and tried them out because the buns love them. I know I can get more from her too because she buys them for horses so she has tons.

I love that my (almost) Future Mother-In-Law is such a great mom to my SO. She’s not overbearing, but is really involved in his life. She isn’t quite as talkative as I’d probably like, but she’s very warm and I always feel welcome in their house. I think she’ll be an AMAZING grandmother one day based on the way she treats my dog. She loves her so much and calls her her grand-dog! 🙂

That she did such a great job raising my Fiance. He is kind, generous, loving, supportive, and hard-working amongst other things. You can tell she set really high expectations for her kids to live up to.

She has also been very kind to my daughter-welcoming her with open arms.

I love alot of things about my Future Mother-In-Law. She’s a very interesting person, and we have great conversations. She’s a retired journalist, and has a great appreciation for the arts. She is also a genuinely nice person, who did a great job raising her son to be a decent, good hearted man, and for that alone, I will always love her.

@maureen9004: LOL!!!

I love that I have a relationship with Mother-In-Law that doesn’t exist solely on Darling Husband being there at the same time. She calls just to chat, we’ll go out shopping or for coffee together. I’m really lucky!!!

Mine is so genuinely happy to have us in her life.  She gives us space but also is there if we need her.   She also accepted my 3 year old son as a grandson.    My ex Mother-In-Law was so terrible, and I really appreciate this woman so much.

I love mine. She’s going to bartending school right now, if that tells you something about the type of gal she is. Which is awesome.

Oh my goodness, I LOVE my Future Mother-In-Law to death!!  She is a second mom to me, esp. since my own mother and I have our issues.  She’s even in my phone as “Other Mother” lol.  She’s been introducing me as her daughter-in-law since the first year we were dating.  I can’t just pick one thing I love about her… I will say she did a great job raising her son. My Fiance is very respectable and well-mannered and treats his mother in a way that just makes me smile.

Future Mother-In-Law even went to my dress fitting yesterday and of course she cried lol 🙂 She’s truly one of the best!

I love that she let us use her condo up north to go skiing when she’s not using it?  Otherwise. . .not so much.  It’s kind of hard when she is unconvincingly fake nice to your face, mean behind your back, and treats her own sons crappy.  I’m trying, I’m tryingggggggggg!

She is the most kind and caring person I have ever met, she will do anything for anyone no matter what it is, and has welcomed me into the family from the very begining.  I can only hope I am as sweet as she is someday!  And she did a wonderful job raising the love of my life!
