Fiance and I were watching a home video from Christmas 2 years ago at FSIL’s with his parents. The video just showed how much fun we have together and how easy it is for us to be all together. Future Sister-In-Law lives in the middle of nowhere, so we end up spending a lot of time together in the same house for days on end (especially if the weather is bad) and we always seem to make it fun with cards or having awesome meals together. There are obviously differences between us and sometimes we have heated debates about stuff (vegetarianism, religion, culture) but I just feel like it’s a totally functional family unit and I’m just glad to be a part of it.
I would love to hear about others brag about their awesome (F)IL’s are! Funny stories, or just nice things you’ve done for them or they’ve done for you recently!

ME!! I laid off my mother in law. In retaliation, she hooked me up with her son. Joke’s on her! (kidding..) My in laws are flippin’ awesome. We all fit together like it’s meant to be. I actually look forward to hanging out with them and miss them when it’s been longer than 2 weeks. Kinda cheesy, but they’re just that awesome. 🙂

@WillyNilly: I know what you mean! We are going to see them in a few weeks and I’m excited! I’m always telling Fiance that he should convince them to come see us. I guess because we live so far that every time we’ve gotten together it’s been for a week or more at a time. It’s actually worked out well because it made us sort out our differences right from the get go. It hasn’t always been smooth sailing, but they are genuinely the nicest people I have ever met!

my husband and i were just talking about this yesterday. we both felt the same way, thank goodness for our dads, they are both amazing. our mom’s are definitely a handleful. both mean well but are stubborn, opinionated and set in their ways. but, it doesn’t mean we don’t love them. they are still very nuturing, caring and generous.

Me! FI’s family has become my family. They are fabulous people and have been more loyal and caring to me than my own.

@mypinkshoes: haha I know exactly what you mean.. my mom is more of a handful though.. Future Mother-In-Law is the happiest go-lucky person I have ever met.
That is so awesome! I definitely am glad to call my FIL’s my own too! I feel like I’m making such a great addition to my family.
It’s funny, FGIL doesn’t speak english very well, so Future Mother-In-Law translates for us and we sit around having coffee. It’s still pretty nice though!

Me! I adore my FI’s family. I took his mom dress shopping with me (I’m not close to my own mother) and she ended up paying for the dress. His dad’s family is crazy and awesome.

My SO’s parents/family is awesome, I was always skeptical about them accepting me and was so nervous to meet them for the first time.
But they are the sweetest, most down to earth, kindest people in the world. Matter of fact we are all going over to his mom’s tomorrow for mothers day brunch! Her idea! She always invites me to family gatherings and has always treated me as part of the family from day one.
This is something I have always wanted to NOT worry about so I feel really blessed to have this.

One more for the ‘loves her in-laws’ club! My Future Mother-In-Law and Future Father-In-Law are amazing and I am grateful for them everyday. They have fully welcomed me into their family and are always incredibly kind and thoughtful. My parents split up with I was little and have both been unsuccessful in their subsequent marriages. In a lot of ways, my in-laws have been my example for a happy and healthy marriage. I feel so fortunate to be joining such a wonderful, supportive family.

My Future In-Laws are so awesome I went to Mexico with them for a week last year and had a blast! We also go to their cottage several times a year and some of my best stories involve them. They even orchestrated parts of the proposal!
Here’s a funny story for you, the year we started dating (2006 if anyone cares) it was Christmas Eve and Fiance called me from his parents house – we weren’t dating yet at this point – to ask me if I wanted to go over there for their annual Christmas Eve party. Unfortunately I couldn’t but I did hear some loud blaring noises in the background followed by a LOT of giggling… I asked him wtf that noise was and he says, its my mom.. playing the trumpet! He didn’t need to mention she can’t play LOL

My future in-laws are pretty great..both mine and FI’s parents are divorced so we get two sets of in-laws each! I’m pretty similar to his mum, we’re both stressheads, emotional, hate to waste money etc which is pretty funny. She’s awesome though, her and her husband are really generous and great to go to for advice. His dad is pretty laidback and easy going, and doesn’t try to push his opinions on to us. I get along great with both of them, and quite often spend time with his mum without Fiance 🙂

I love mine, I feel so blessed to have them as my in laws! They have treated me wonderful since day one and are all vocal about how happy they are to have me as part of their family. When I need a mom because mine is unavailable or something, I can always call Future Mother-In-Law. I am so excited to marry into their family and take their last name!
