  • I get along with my husband's family but my husband is cordial with mine. Mine likes to cause drama so we try to stay away from all of it.

  • I get along with his. He hadn't really met any of my family, except my mom and my brother (only twice). We don't communicate with my family anymore though, so my side is irrelevant.

  • Neither one of us get along with the others family unfortunately. We pretty much just tolerate them for the other. My family likes to cause drama and so does his and neither of them get along with each other. Family reunion's are a blast.

  • I tried to get along with my ex's family... but we just clashed. His mom was nosey, his dad was an alcoholic, and his sister was a huge b****! They were nice overall...but the little things got to me. Ultimately they were part of the reason we didn't work out.
    My ex still gets along with my family, though. Probably mostly for my son's sake, but no complaints here.

  • Absolutely! Our families' happen to know each other very well as one of my brother's was in school with my DH. Our parents get along. It comes in handy for many a thing. I know it will def come in handy once our baby arrives as she'll be babysat at either of their houses. Also they happen to live only a few blocks from each other as well. I feel very lucky. I know that not everyone has it so easy.
