Do you REALLY like your in-laws?

Posted by   + Show Post
Fess up and be honest =) Do you really like your in-laws or does a part of you secretly dread seeing them at holidays? Or does your own family drive you batty??

That's really great! I'm happy for you!

Quoting ermka:

I adore my in-laws. They unconditionally love their children and grandchildren. From the moment dh & I started dating, my son was their grandson and I their daughter. They involve themselves but not in am overbearing kind of way, they can take social cues to know when it's time to back off. They're perfect.

Probably


Quoting jconney80:

lol I love that term! It's great you have a good relationship with your ex-in-laws! My in-laws drive me crazy too. Sometimes I wonder if it would be better if we were able to talk in person. I just think too much gets lost in translation on the phone sometimes. It's hard to read people's expressions etc

Quoting Fields456:

I love my Inlaws. Yes they drive me batshit crazy sometimes but so does my own family same goes for my ex Inlaws ( still have a great relationship with them because of my daughter )

I'm sorry that you never got to meet your FIL but it's great that you get along with your MIL  :) I've never met my MIL either. She passed away years ago. My FIL remarried though when my hubby was younger and so I know his stepmom

Quoting kerryket:

I love my MIL, I never got to meet my FIL, he passed before I met my husband.

I wish I could get along easily with my SIL too. She's kind of indifferent. I know how you feel!

My MIL she is pretty sweet lady she kind of drives me crazy when she puts a guilt trip on us if we don't make it to every family event... My husbands brother is cool although his wife we had our times where we couldn't be around one another that's because her sister is my husbands ex wife..
