How often do you see your in-laws?

I know some people love their in-laws, some people hate them, and some have a love/hate relationship.  So, how often do you see yours?  Do you get along?

That really stinks that he isn't as open to your family as you obviously are to his.  Hugs to you.

We get along very well. They live about 2 hours away and we spend at least a full weekend there a month. At the very least....... yes..... its to much. We were at their house for 2 WEEKS for Christmas. I love them... but honestly. My parents live..... an hour away and he never will go stay with them. Its bull crap. He has met them literally 5 times in the 4 years we have been together.

I see my in laws once every week . They call me every two days to just to say hi and talk to their grand babies . I see them and we have a lot of get togethers . I see my own parents less then maybe once a month if that sometimes and maybe talk to them on them phone once every other week unless they need something . And they live about 6 miles away from us . My in laws live about 3 miles away from us . I get along with my in laws way better then my own parents . I live myprents and would love to have a close relationship with them . But my mom when I go see her has her face buried in a book or on her tablet playing games . I am closer to my in laws then with my own parents. I am even closer to my sister in law then my own two sisters . I speak to my in laws more then my hubby does to them and his sister . He is okay with his in laws but they are not close like I am with his parents . Because my parents usually only call when they need something not to check on their grandchildren or me just when they need to borrow money .

While that stinks about your parents I am glad you get along so well with your in-laws.  That is nice to have that bond.

 I get along better with FIL than MIL.

Quoting countrygirlkat:

That is nice you get to see them so often.  Do you get along well with them?

About once a week for MIL and FIL.

Yes, he cut contact with them in September & he is doing so much better.

Quoting countrygirlkat:

Yikes, that doesn't sound good.  Is your DH in agreement or do you still have to see them?

Quoting littlemrsd:

Never would be to soon.
