  • not all of them...i get along with the mother and father inlaw and sometimes the brother inlaw. but i do NOT get along with the sis inlaw only because she acts like a 12 year old when she's like over 30 now. i dont get all mean or anything, we can be in the same room together, but we will never be close in a friend way. i dont even consider her a friend.

    there's another brother that married a girl that is very demanding and likes to pull the "poor me" thing and i find it tiring to deal with so i cant possibly get along with her. she also thinks that posting "f.o." and "what a dummy" on facebook isnt suppose to be about me but its a bit obvious when its like right after something i have done. i just cant get along with her and his brother!!! no way!!

  • When I first started coming around I was praised for brining DH out of the woodwork and back into the family life. He'd rarely go to family functions, rarely socialize if he did show up, etc. Then as we all started to get to know one another our entire beings clashed. Specifically between my MIL and I. We just couldn't find common ground for anything. Then after a while we started to just let our differences go and we began to build the common ground. Since it couldn't be found otherwise. Now we have a better relationship, but I think we both know we'll never be best friends. That's okay though, as long as we can stand one another and be civil that's fine with me.

  • My father in law is passed away,but my mother in law and I are very close! I'm closer to her than my own mother, but not by my choice.

  • It's hard to stay positive when all they want to do is point out things that they see as "problems". I'm not trying to raise kids the same way that they did and they can't agree to disagree.
