Your relationship with your MIL/FIL

The rest of FI's family is another story. FI and his one brother had a falling out last year and they haven't spoken in over a year. I didn't care for his wife so not much lost there. Although, I get along with his other brother and sis-in-law i don't feel I can trust them. Again, I try to stay out of the family politics.

i really like my FILs for the most part. but since i am 9 years older than tom, one weird thing is that my FMIL is actually around my sister's age! i think that fact alone helps us get along well. i've already told her that i would feel weird calling her "mom" because of it. strangely tho, i have no problem calling his grandmother "mom-mom" like they all do, even tho she is the same age as my parents! maybe it's because i don't have any grandparents still living? anyway, i never had brothers, and tom has 3, so i'm all set now in the "little bro" department, LOL.
don't get me wrong, they are a very big close-knit bunch compared to my small family, and are all sorts of in each other's business. some of them get gossipy, demanding, and even manipulative, and their home is a disaster. but i wouldn't trade them for the world. they have never made me feel like an outsider ... they are warm and welcoming and have made me feel like a member of their family since day one.

Mine are a bit strange 2 lol my mum is dead and my dad lives on the otherside of the world so FI doesn't really have any contact with dad which is probably a good thing because dad is very sarky and FI doesn't get it lmao
If I could have got away with her not coming to the wedding I would have because she just boils me on sight lol especially now she has a new hubby who is an ass lmao

So her and I have developed this email relationship, she updates me on what is going on in Calgary, and I tell her about new wedding stuff, sent her photos of the dresses I was considering, she has 3 boys, so I think she is excited about having a daughter!

It is an age old joke that MILs are a nightmare. There are even websites dedicated to the subject.
So, what is your relationship with your future mother-in-law like?
Looking forward to hearing all about it !
