  • My mil and I get along ok, most of the time. She tends to push things, but other than that, we get along fine. My sils are all older ( except my husbands biological sister) so we don't have much in common. My husbands sister and I get a long ok, we have different views on things.... Plus they are a little redneck, nothing wrong with that except when they have drunk friends hanging off their porch or shooting guns at 9 am. ( they are also our neighboors) I do have to point out, that my husbands parents are as old as my grandparents, so I think that it's a little harder to connect to them.

  • MIL & SIL get along great. SIL class MIL mom. SIL would always tell me it wasn't like that at frist that they never liked each other and that it took years to get where they are. OK, fine believable at frist. However, it's been 6 years and MIL & I relationship hasn't inporved if not it's gotten worse. MIL doesn't like that I stand up for myself and my kids. That when we had/have stepkids I had a say in what they can and couldn't do because I was the one home with them while S/O was working.

  • we get along fine with my SIL far as I know, we think she gets some weird ideas sometimes, but no one has really fought badly with her far as I know

  • I get along with my MIL for the most part. Shortly after my husband and I moved from them she started to I guess not like me and we had a fight after my daughter was born but have gotten over it. She tends to tell me in a round about way that I don't have control over my three year old and I'm sure she talks about me behind my back since she talks about my SIL's behind theirs. As for my SIL's we get along ok. My one is a little fake and I can't stand fake people but she is ok and the other one treats my BIL like shit. I don't like the way she treats him but we did get along a lot better but then I got pregnant and she stopped talking to me unless she has to talk to me. She was trying to get pregnant and we weren't and got pregnant. Maybe once she gets pregnant things will go back to normal. She tells everyone that she is the way she is right now because she is depressed.

  • That has to be hard to deal with. Don't fret too much. If they don't like you for who you are, then it's their problem. I'm sure you've got other good people/friends who an make up for that.

  • my MIL and I get along okay but my SIL (my husband's brother's wife) absolutely haaaaates her and her husband. but so does my brother in law... I mean they hate the parents. I don't love them, because one is mean and the other a ghost of a human, but I can get along with them if needed, unlike the rest of the family.
