  • eh - I am civil and I think they are too when we are all together, we've never gotten in a blow up or fight in the 14 years we've been together but we are very different personalites

  • My MIL has a selective memory and was a very bad parent, so I don't trust her grandparenting skills too much. It's strained and tense. I used to LOVE my father in law like my own dad, til my MIL told me he secretly hated me.... lol. So it's a mess. I invited them to the circus recently and they declined.... they only like to spend time w/ my kids when they'll get attention/praise from their neighbors and friends

  • I like to think we get along although some days I feel my M-I-L does not think I am doing things right! But oh well I try!

  • My fil don't really have issues, it's been tense since my dh and I had temp custody of his 10 year old. As for my mil, it was always insults (from her) and rudeness. And now she's broken contact with us so there's nothing there. My dh and I spend a lot of time with my parents, we all hang out and do things. But both of my dh's parents are missing my children growing up.

  • My DH father and my dad(stepfather) were best friends so I knew him before I knew my DH however he actually past away years before we got together...My MIL was one of the sweetest woman I ever met in my life, also knew her prior to get with my DH..Actually knew his entire family but for some reason do not remember him prior to us hooking up...Lost my MIL 3 years into my marriage.. I miss her so much everyday....I hope things get better for you and yours..
