  • Eh... I'm am closer to my step-dad then my father, and my mom doesnt talk to me all that much... I don't know why. They want me to call all the time but they never answer when I call. I am closer to my hubbys family then my own.

  • ♥ This is a FUNNY question to me, Because I often wonder if I am the only one who has such a messed up family. My family cant get along for nothing. I have some cousins that are crack heads, Others that are hoe's. I have One cousin II Love to death. The rest I hate. and I only hang out with one. I have my mom. But she favors my brother and all ways has. And I have no clue who my dad is. So that sucks. BUT NOPE I dont get along with my family. And my family doese not like the choices I have made. Like me being with a black man and having two kids. and not being marryed. My mom doese not care. Its the rest of the family that does♥

  • I have a huge family. All of my cousins, 2nd cousins, Aunts, Uncles, all live close together and see each other often. When I lived in Louisiana near them, I couldn't stand it. They were always all up in everyone's business and everyone gossiped about each other. I fought with everyone all of the time. Then I moved away and I get along with everyone much better! I realized that I love them very much but living near them is too much drama...

  • we have a great relationship with my family...always doing things together/celebrating any event that effects one of us, just being together. my hub's family is weird, tho. nothing's ever happened to make them disconnect, but they aren't connected. we don't see/hear from them unless its a major holiday/his family's annual reunion, and even then, i think its only because 'its the thing to do'. his mother is totally up his sister's a**/her family, and its like pulling teeth to get her to commit to one dinner with us. and yes, we all live within the same distance of each other. his family can go weeks/months without calling/seeing him, and my family would live on the same street, go to the same stores/church/gas station/barber/etc if it meant we'd be doing things together. just two totally different families, i guess.

  • With me family, I have a great relationship. Our family has always been accepting of one another and very loving. We spent a lot of time doing family activities growing up which I believe helped us to be as close as we are.
    The relationship with my inlaws is not so great though. They do not like the fact that I "stole their son" and that we do not need to tell them and get their input on every little thing that goes on in our lives

  • I had a decent relationship with my mom but she is no longer alive. My dad and I are closer now than we were when I was growing up. I still have my grandparents and my grandma is like a best friend to me. I talk to her almost evryday. My husbands parents are very nice and I get along with them fine. They live real far from us so we dont see them often.

  • Do I have a good relationship with my family? No I don't, well most of them anyway.
    Why not? Mostly because I am an atheist... Most of my family are die hard Christians though, and think that I am going to hell and dragging my son with me. *eye roll* My mom accepts me, but our relationship was never great soooo ... lol
