Have your parents ever met your IL's?? If so, how do they get along??

Today is my stepdaughters birthday and my mom might be coming so I am wanting to know ahead of time what to expect. My mom is totally opposite from my IL's. They have never met until maybe today, if mom comes.

my mother cannot stand my ILs and my ILs are okay with my mom. My wedding nite something was said to my mom from Jeremy's mom and it started a big fiasco, so my mother 5 years later cannot get over it and think that maybe in 5 years someone has changed and that my MIL was not the only one being a B***h at my wedding.....

My dad has met my IL's and they hate him. Neither of my IL's have met my mom since she lives in GA. My DH has only met her once.

Yes...and I wish they hadn't.

They can't stand each other.

My ILs are willing to be civil, but my parents can't get over some things that they said and did to her.

I think they're all acting like children.

I just wanted to let you know that my mom did come to the b-day party. DH's mom came but his dad didn't because he has been sick in bed for 2 days. It went great though.

Anyone else want to share their expirences in this situation??

My mom has met DH's grandmaw (who raised him) a couple times and they just adore eachother. They both talk about how sweet the other one is. LOL. And my mom has met my MIL but only been around her 2 times. Once at the rehearsal dinner and then the next day at the wedding. They got along fine. MIL said she felt bad for my mom because she cried so much at the wedding. My mom can be kind of an emotional basket case at times (wonder where I get it from) and she got so emotional at the wedding that she literally cried through the whole thing. Oh, and I think almost my whole family has met BIL more than once and they all like him fine. Other than that, I have ALOT of ILs that I have never even met and I know there are some out there that DH hasnt met either so.....LOL......its hard to say if they would get along.

Oh, and FIL died of cancer a year before DH and I started dating so I never got to meet him and either did my family. But DH tells me all the time how much he would have loved me and how much he would have fit in with my family.

They met when I was in the hospital giving birth to Joshua.

They are civil to each other.
