  • Terrible! It used to be good for the first couple years that my husband and I were married but then his mother started to over step her boundaries, she made some inappropriate comments to me and my husband wouldn't ever defend me or say anything about it to her-which in turn caused some major problems in our marriage. It almost seemed like she was competing with me for my husbands love. After letting this cause major problems in our marriage for 2 years my husband FINALLY put his foot down and put her in her place and told her that they way she acted and treated me was completely inappropriate and would not be tolerated any longer. Now I realize why it took my husband so long to say anything. His parents have acted like total children about the entire situation and no longer speak to us-they used to call my husband at least once a week-they haven't called since the incident.

  • I am so lucky! My in-laws treat me like another daughter and I can talk to them about anything especially my mother-in-law.

  • I have tried to make an honest effort but they didn't like me from day one, but they tolerate me. Ugh! I don't mind them, they are very nice people, but I definitely don't try to get them to like me anymore. It's been 10 years of me trying and I finally gave up.

  • We are the best of friends. We have couples date night with them every other Friday which includes dinner and cards at their house. We love spending time with them and they love spending time with us.

  • Good. His mom said I was the best choice he ever made in his life! His dad thinks the world of me! I miss his mom a lot. We use to stay up for hours talking after the men went to bed. I had the opportunity to share the events of Jesus Christ with her. She gave her lfe to Him. It was an awesome moment....

  • The first few years were horrible, they weren't even at our wedding. Now I love them and they're a huge part of our lives.

  • I love my inlaws. No it hasn't always been that way. The first few years I wasn't completely fond of my MIL. But now I love them to death. We live 2 hours away from them. We will go visit them and stay from 1-7 nights depending on how much time hubby has off. My inlaws will be here in 2 weeks then we go up to see them 2 weeks later. I love knowing that my children get to see them often and make memories with them. I don't have many memories of my grandparents. I want that for my children.
