Just curious. Made it a poll so it could be anonymous.

Get along with the FIL and his family, but we don't really click.

Don't have a relationship with my MIL or her family. It's just an altogether bad situation.

We get along. We're not best of friends or anything. But, they're okay.

I get along perfectly well with my in-laws. I get along fine with my own parents, it has it's bad moments, but we do get along well. My husband, on the other hand, does not like my mother, but treats her well despite for my sake. She does like him and doesn't talk badly about him, but she can be critical, judgmental, and nosy at times and he does not like her for that.

My MIL and FIL are great. It's a struggle often with everyone else.

Yes, BUT BUT BUT we are FARRRRRRRRR away that's why I am a firm believer that a lot of distance harbors warm relationships with inlaws.......

My inlaws never wanted me as a daughter inlaw.. They had my hubby married off to another.. So when he announced that he was marrying me.. They were ticked.. They even made bets we wouldn't last 6 months... They were so glad we split right before Christmas last year. But now that my hubby asked to come home.. The are super peeved.. It just gets their goose.. That I he chose to come back to me on his own.. Without me coaxing.....

In the beginning of the marriage we got along just fine, but as time has gone on his dad has become a little too irritating. I get along with both of them, but his dad does not seem to like me all too much considering we do not share the same opinion. I guess the feeling is mutual.
