Do you like your inlaws?

Or your SO's family?


I love my inlaws.  They are very understanding, supportive and just nice.  I call my MIL my emergency back up mom :)  We get along really well.  I think I am lucky since you always hear horror stories about the inlaws.

1 mom liked this

My sister-in-law and I have been really close from the beginning. My father-in-law is annoying, but I tolerate him. My mother-in-law never really seemed to like me all that much... until she discovered I was pregnant. Just takes a grandchild to make an old lady see perspective, I guess. ;)

 I don't know his family enough to know if I like them or not. I've only met his brother and dad once. I have yet to meet his 4 other siblings, his mom, and the rest of his extended family.

Hate them.

We don't associate with most of that side of the family.

I would love to get along  with my in-laws but the problem is they want to be in our relationship and tell us how run our house hold and how to raise our children I try my hardest to speak up but not be disrespectful at the same time. Any advice?

Honestly, talk to them like adults.  My MIL tried this once and both DH and I sat down with her and put it simply.  We are adults, we will live the way we want to and you don't need to be involved unless you think it will do a lot of harm.

Quoting motherof531:

I've only met my sister in law and she is nice enough.

At first it was rocky but now we all get along well.
