  • My mil hates me, I love my sil and the grandparents are pretty nice.. I don't really know the rest of his family, but I can tell you I could do without his mil, and sadly he agrees 100% with me! (which i'm sure makes her hate me that much more, but in reality, I have done nothing to make him think that!)

  • Love my MIL. She doesn't quite make up for the loss of my mom, but she's a great lady. My FIL is nice, but I don't see him often due to distance, and I can't stand his girlfriend.

  • My in-laws are complex. My husband is an only child and he and his parents have always shared EVERYTHING. I hate that the know our finances and that we're trying to concieve. Those are supposed to be private and between us. We get along fine at Christmas (which is about the only time we see them, whereas we're at my parents' at least twice a month). Sometimes I have to remind my honey to talk with me before he talks with his mother. While they love me, I think they resent me because he doesn't have the same "freedom" he had before I came along. And my fil, bless his heart, needs to learns that sex is NOT a topic to be discussed in a family setting with adult children. It's none of his business often we made love our first year of marriage!
