  • Count your blessings. At least they are interested in your family.

  • Idk but my in laws are SOOO interested in our friends and it drives me crazy! They need to get friends their own age. They don't even like me so it even more annoying....

  • I'm glad that they want to be around, but I feel smothered. It's obvious that they feel uncomfotable, but they still ALWAYS want to be around. There is a huge age difference & none of our friends parents tag along.

  • I don't think it is...it is ok for them to be invited to special occasions but not to be there with you & your friends all the time...you need your space with your friends as they do with their friends

  • My MIL and FIL leave us alone. BUT we predominantly hang out with my parents. So mmy husbands in laws are around him a lot. Since he works with my dad too it can be a bit much for him.
