Are your in-laws more fun than your own family?

I was surprised how much more laid back holidays and things were with mine than what I'd grown up with (and life with less cloth napkin, cold mashed potato dinners is fine by me)

  • Yes. They actually get out and do things rather than stay at home like my parents and watch tv all day.

  • Nope mine are more laid back. My inlaws are the cloth napkin, stick up their booty kind lol. I love them, dont get me wrong. But I can use people around me who are not that wound up tightly if you know what I mean.
    My family has always been laid back. We eat and drink in the livingroom, laugh, joke etc and no one takes the other too seriously when we have family get togethers. Its all for fun.

  • Oh yea!!! My dad died when I was young so it's just my mom around. All she does it sleep and watch TV all day long. My brothers and sister we all get together, but my mom just won't go out. My in-laws are way fun, they like to get out and do things with the family, and watch the grand-kids in sports. I really enjoy having them :0)

  • I wouldn't call it laid back, but certainly more pleasant to deal with! All my family does is make sarcastic remarks and bitch about each other. In laws are a blast, lol!

  • No. no. and no! i would not describe them as fun. My family, on the other hand, laughs a lot and we have all kinds of fun.
