Did your inlaws like your husband's choice in a wife?

My inlaws HATED me and told me that they did not want their son marrying me. Now they claim to LOVE LOVE LOVE. Sometimes the past comes backup but I attempt to pray that back down. But I always wanted to know what their problem really was? Did your inlaws like you?

  • My inlaws love me, and my kids! They were a little apprehensive I think because I had been married and came as a package deal with my 3 kids, but their fears were allayed when they met me. His mom and I are both Southern ladies, born and bred - so even if she didn't like me I would never know it! :)

  • I never met my MIL or FIL, they passed away before I had the chance. But my DH is one of 9 kids, two passed before we met, but out of the other 7, I have met 4, including my DH, of them, two of them can't stand me & I can't stand them... The last one thinks I should divorce my DH (his brother mind you) and marry his son (who was my ex's Best friend)... It's complicated, but to put it simply, of the ILs I have met, they would generally like to see us split up...

  • I really don't think my husband's parents were interested enough to actually form an opinion at that time, but I never got the feeling that they didn't like me. Luckily his grandparents made it clear that they liked me from the very beginning, and they made me feel very welcome.

  • If they like you now and you have no problems with them, let by gones be by gones. I still talk to my first mother in law years later. The other was crazy just like her son and no did not like me. Even though she had no reason.
