with your ILs or like them if you weren't married to your DH?

I posed this question to DH about MIL and even he said that he wouldn't like her if he weren't related to her! But alas, he is!

That would be a big fat NO!! Although DH was friends with my sister, that is how we met.

Can't wait to meet our new baby GIRL!

**** no!! I wouldn't give MIL the time of day. Same as my SO. He only associates with her cause she's his mother. She can't understand why he's so hard on her. I guess the fact that she was a drunk and he almost died at birth, to be followed by her abandoning him and his brothers, then denying his existance, and mooching off of him when he did allow her in his life as an adult should have nothing to do with it THANKFULLY shes leaving FIL yet again and is moving far away She will not be missed. Yeah, she is not a good person. FIL is miserable, but he has a good heart. If it wasn't for SO I wouldnt be able to see past that, so I suppose no to him too.

I am not sure about my MIL, but I definitely would not speak with my FIL had Tommy and I not gotten married. He is judgmental and then some. I have to post how things went yesterday. Can we say WOW!!?
**Thanks for my beautiful siggy *Sharon* **

The only one I wouldn't talk to ever would be my MIL. Though I don't foresee me being friends with my ILs if DH & I were to ever separate.

I think I might be one of the only people who actually likes their MiL. I actually like her a lot. She is really nice and good with DS. If I was not with DH, I dont think I would have ever met her though. She is such a successful career woman, so hard working. I dont think her path and mine would have ever crossed..

I'm only fake nice to my DH's siblings so there's no way I'd want to be around them if we weren't related. For the most part, they're a bunch of prejudiced, intolerant, condemning people who hide behind their religion. And they have really dirty houses. Against my beliefs on every level!

Probably, at least for a little while. If I wasn't in the family circle I wouldn't know how crazy she was. Plus, I could take breaks from her when she got too needy. I've been the needy friend before so I tend to give my friends a lot of leeway there.

I grew up across the street from SO and his family, and I loved her to pieces when I was a teenager. Looking back, the crazy was always there, I just didn't recognize it at the time.

Thanks to Graysmama for my pretty siggy!

Probably not.. my FIL is not very dependable and kinda sketchy when it comes to money. His wife (DH's stepmom) is pretty cool. I would get along with her. One of his half brothers is like the dad. Alright guy, but has a pill problem and can't hold a job. Never returns phone calls and it hurts my DH's feelings.

My MIL.. eh. She is really REALLY needy. We pay for a lot of her stuff (save that for another time) and still hasn't seemed to be able to cut the cord. She wouldn't even speak to me for like 4 months when we started dating. I understand her missing him, but he is a grown man and we are trying to start our own family. She makes it very hard.

Oops.. didn't mean to write a book.

Thank you Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggy

H E L L NO! I can't stand a single family member of his. Even he can't stand his own family, he just knows he's stuck with them.

❤ Big Thanks to Vicki, trishosaurus, & Shortcake for the great siggies of my kids! ❤

I'd be friends with my SIL, in fact I refer to her as my sister. As for my MIL, FIL, and DH's brother....nope. I wouldn't associate with them if it weren't for my DH and our kids.

NO! MIL is totally nuts. FIL is a boozer (not married to MIL or I would say maybe she was the reason). BIL is really needy (has to have a woman in his life to feel he has worth) and SIL is really aggressive (although being raised being bounced between MIL and FIL . . . I can sort of understand her need for complete control).

No question about it, YES!! They are the best people in the world! Except for my SIL! If we didn't marry brothers, we wouldn't have anything to do with each other.
