Do you get along better w/spouse's fam than your own?

Are they just more agreeable, or is your fam the 'normal' ones, lol?

  • I don't have a relationship with my husband's family. But my husband has a better relationship with some of my family members than I do. That's weird to me, cause he doesn't even have a relationship with his family.

  • No, his family are a bunch of self-centered morons, and that's my nice way of describing them! Seriously, his father dislikes me because my hubby did ALL of the household chores when he lived at home and my parents and I helped him be able to move out. His mom, I've met her 3 times counting out wedding so no clue what her issue is but she does what she can to make us fight. Such as ask us for favors and email me one set of info about it and him another then say I'm lying about it when he says that she said something different to I have the email, he saw it and knows who's lying! His siblings are just weird.
    The last straws for him were his dad 'disowning him' because he called one Christmas and our phone line wasn't working so we didn't know he called and didn't answer. His mom called near his 30th birthday, never said Happy Birthday and wouldn't say I love you back to him. We're done with them now, for good.

  • Yes. In ways I get along better with Inlaws than my own family.
    His family- fully supported our natural birth, breastfeeding & other parenting choices. They are a caring bunch. Not alot of drinking/smoking/drugs...
    My family- Question alot of our choices with only an opinion & no facts. Most of my family drink/smoke.. Ive always kinda felt like the Odd/ different one in my family. so i seem to fit better around inlaws.
