  • Well there's getting along with and then there's tolerating. I do the first one with my family and neither with in-laws. They're still mad about their son choosing a wife and not wanting to live with them. Selfish so selfish.

  • Considering the fact that I don't speak to my bio parents, and Mom and Dad (my amazing In-Laws) love me to death (and vice versa)..yes! The rest of my Husband's Family, well..I've only met a few of them and one def was not my cup i'm tea. I have a few Family members that I do speak to on my side, but it's complicated.

  • 0Oh HELL YES. MY inlaws are fabulous and amazig and I adore them to no end. My family are a bit insane and most of them don't even like me. I'm way, way closer to my husband's dad and step mom than my own family.
    My mom calls and I try to chate politley.I call my MIL about every other day or so to talk about what the kids are doing or just chat, or sometimes when i'm just having a really bad day.
