    not really!! They come here once every second month and they try tp polish it off by bribing my kids with candy etc. not that they'd spend time with them or even ask them to go for a ice cream. their pretty lame lately over the last couple of years. So id say, least i see them the better.

    We all get along really well. In fact, they let us stay with them rent free for three months while we were looking for a house. My only complaint is that they are afraid to bring up problems to me, they go to my DH. But then, that may be a bit of a blessing! I don't always deal well with confrontation!

    sometimes. if my mil is keeping her nose out of our business, we get along fine. when she sticks it where it doesn't belong, we have issues. fil just doesn't know when to shut up. otherwise he's fine to be around.

    My Mil and Fil are both dead. My sister in laws and I don't argue or anything, but we aren't at all close.
    My daughter in laws and I get along really well.

    Yes I do. She has given plenty of unsolicited advice over the years. I just promptly ignore it and do what I think is right. I love my DH and he loves his mother.
    I always say, keep the best from a person and chuck the rest.

    Nope. My MIL was the type to say one thing and then stab you in the back. When my MIL died last year and we had to take care of FIL he smacked me once and I looked at DH and said that is it he goes to a nursing home. No way am I putting myself or my kids at risk. He has gone as far as hitting the nurses.

    sort of, we get along fine now although i resent her "advice". we did have a shouting match once, bought on by my DH telling MIL I found her overbearing (which i do but i would never have said it like that). I generally try to not spend a ton of time with them and i find that i can appreciate them more, and they are good grandparents so I try to see them in that light.

    I do know im not exactly the type of girl they had hoped their son would marry.
