    Do you get along with your in-laws?

    99.9% of the time w/MIL, but do hold my tongue a lot of FIL. Love them both dearly, but....

    No, not in the least. I stay on speaking terms for the sake of my husband and son, and only for their sake.

    Every time there is an important day in my life, they manage to somehow leave a lasting impression that ruins the memory for me (including our wedding!). I have given up on establishing a relationship with them.

    No. I can tolerate my FIL, but my MIL makes by blood boil just about every time I see her. She's the most selfish, childlike person I've ever had the displeasure of knowing.

    Yes, his parents...I call them Mom and Dad and love them both very much.
    I love & get along well with his brothers & sister too. Don't always agree with them but we are all wonderful enough to know that it's ok and enjoy the time we spend together.

    We're pleasant to each other, but I prefer not to spend much time with them. They are two of the most miserable, pessimistic people I know. We're spending the day with them for Father's Day and that's fine because it's my husband's day and I want to do whatever makes him happy. After that, we probably won't get together with them for a few months. DH sees them while I work at night and that seems to work out. It's too bad because they live two streets away.

    We actually get along very well. There are two things we disagree on - religion and my son's hair. She wants to shove her religion down our throats, does not respect our views and beliefs. DS has been growing his hair out for Locks of Love ans all she ever talks about is how boys don't need long hair.

    FIL is so easy going, he is a hoot.

    DH gets along great with my parents. My mom oves him dearly. She says he is one of the greatest guys she has ever met. My dad is a lot like my FIL - very laid back so DH and my dad get along great too.

    My parents and his parents even get along with each other. My dad and his dad fish together and his mom and my mom always talk to each other.

    Default Not married

    But when I was . . .no! MIL was certified (and I'm not kidding) looney. FIL was in prison for crimes which we don't speak about . . .
    After our divorce, my ex actually took the time to contact MY parents and convince them them that I was an evil person and should not even be parenting our child . . . .SHEESH!! My parents wouldn't speak to me for nearly a year . . . .

    So! I guess the answer is NO!

    Well both dh's parents are long dead. His brother and I get along. We dont see them often as they live in Florida. He and his wife are very good to my kids.
    Dh's 2 sisters I could do without. Dh doesnt have alot of contact with them either.
    Dh and my mom got along very well and when she was dying last yr she had me write him a letter telling him that she loved him and could not be more proud of him if he were her own child.

    Yes I do get along with my MIL. We used to live with here when we first married and had no problem. My FIL and my DD do not speak.

    Yes, I get along with my MIL and FIL so much so that we live next door to them. We don't have any problems.

    I do not have an in-laws. Never had any with my first marriage either.
    My husband gets along with my parents just fine. \My first husband looked up to my mom as his mother.
