I hear it all the time,family is family or when you marry someone you marry their family too.I don't consider dh's family mine too.I just don't,even his niece's and nephews that been born since we been together.He has a daughter she's HIS not mine I don't what to be referred to as her child grandma because I'm NOT !He has his family and I have mine.

Just little added info

For everyone saying our relationship won't last,well it has for 19 yrs now.

His nieces and nephews call me aunt.although I don't feel like their aunt I have never said anything.

Blood has nothing to do with anything.If they were good caring people it would be easy to accept them,but they are not.

Why would I love his daughter like he does? We seen her twice a yr,not really a lot of time to bond

Just because you have good in laws doesn't mean every one does

Family isn't just blood...it's people in your life that you love and that are important to you..

My mom claims 3 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren from my 1/2 sister. She loves it. And DH wouldn't know what to do with himself without his nieces and nephews (all from my side). Our families became our family once we got married.

That sounds like a very tense and unpleasant situation.

Wow. Is there a particular reason you feel that way? I've never met anyone who thought that, and personally I can't imagine thinking like that. I adore my entire family, whether they are by blood or marriage and I've got a number of friends who I grew up with and consider family.

Why bother then? If it will still be a life of "mine" and "yours", really, why bother?

I can kind of agree.  Though I don't feel as strict as you.  Some of DH's family have earned their way into my trust, some have drawn a distinct and clear line in the sand.  That is, until we come into some money or have something they want.  Then we're so very close and they've always loved me.
