  • My FIL is pretty great. Not a very talkative person towards me, and for a while, I thought he didn't like me until I found out that is how he is like 98% of the time. He is a very hardworking man that takes care of his family. Super kudos to him!!

  • My real FIL we have spoken to in 3 years. But my MIL, who I love her Fiance is a great guy. He loves being a grandad and I dont think my DS could have gotten a better one. But he bugs me because hes irish and talks about drinking alot, and how hes sure that i need a nip after taking care of my son all day. I just tell him to shut it.

  • I adored my father in law, we lost him a couple of years ago. He was the one who made me feel like part of the family, and treated me like a daughter. He wasn't always perfect, but neither am I.
