  • It's good. Back when I was in my 20's, it was a little tense sometimes, but that's because I thought I knew everything and didn't know my place. Not that we don't have issues every once in awhile now, but I love them and they love me.

  • Decent but not as close as they might want it to be. I dont particularly feel emotion positively for them because I think they were selfish parents when my husband was growing up and are responsible for his own issues and insecurities today. That said I make more effort than he does for the kids to spend time with them.

  • i don't get along with most of Dh's family. His brother is a jerk (everyone i know doesn't like him, including DH) and his mom is super controlling. i do get along with his dad, but we almost never see him with my MIL. fr the 1st year of our marriage i got along with my MIL, but the 1st time i told er i thought she was wrong about something, she had a fit. started telling everyone I was crazy and that i would call and yell at her. one time DH wouldn't do what she wanted so she told me he was cheating on me (he wasn't)

  • ehhhhh.... not really. lol I dont hate them but i never get a warm welcome(not even lukewarm). My parents always ask about hubby but his family acts like he's a single father. I think it's super rude so i keep my distance.
