  • Friendly with MIL, we talk 3 or 4 times a week, but I don't have a lot of respect for her and would never trust her to care for my kids. FIL is mostly non-existent. He doen't talk to me or DH much (coupe of times a year).

  • im lucky enough to have 2 MILs (just explained in another post).... Step mom who raised dh and bio who left him when he was 3, then came back around when he was a teen. the bio MIL is a complete B! We can't stand each other and my dh doesn't even like her. My mom hates her most of all, its funny. Although, MILs boyfriend, which she has had for about 20 years, is the most amazing guy in the world and probably my favorite in-law. My other MIL is nice and respectful. We get along fine.

  • Friendly with MIL - she didn't get along with DH's 1st wife and I'm a less confrontational person.

  • they like me. They are ok. It's not that we have a bad relationship they are just extremely BORING. I can only handle about 5 minutes of talking with them because they have nothing to say. I typically hear the same 4-5 stories every time I see them and it has been 7 years now! It is so strange because DH and I really enjoy being around my parents. Enough to take vacations with them and we have a good time. The IL's have just lived such sheltered lives even DH doesn't like spending alot of time with them.
