  • I would say like 80% comfortable. I like my in-laws, I have a few issues with them, but overall they mean well. I still feel like a guest at their house though and not family. I will also add... My FIL is a recovering alcoholic, and even though he has been "dry" for 15+ years, I think most of the family members still kind of walk on eggshells around him and try not to do things to "set off dad" as he was an abusive alcoholic. I never knew him then, but I think it makes the family dynamics a bit off still.
  • I loved my father-in-law to bits, but my mother-in-law... UGH!
  • 100%. I love my in laws. They have done nothing but welcome me with open arms and we love each other very much. My husband and I often do things with his parents, and when we are in the states my parents are the same way towards my husband. We really got lucky when you look at it :D
  • I haven't met them yet. They live on the other side of the world and don't speak English.
  • I'll have to wait and meet them in the next world. They all passed on.:(
  • For a long time not very, but after a while I just had to visit the cemetery....that wasn't as bad:)
  • It's almost home away from home at this point. I could do without the family sarcastic sense of humor though.
  • My father-in-law passed away in January of 2007. Since then, I have been the main handler of my mother-in-laws bills and other financial affairs. So rather comfy I would say.
  • Very comfortable. They're both good people, easy to get along with.
  • My first husband's family was okay; he had more difficulties with them than I did. I kept in contact with them until they died. My second husband's mother became closer to me than my own. I am lucky to have had her.His father was a very funny man--which led to my husband's great sense of humor.
  • :-/ i'm comfortable with the mother maybe 40%... the dad, and my s/o's three brothers... i would say 0% they're selfish ppl who are only interested in money and sex
  • I only have a mother-in-law. She lives in Japan, many miles away. She's a very nice elderly lady. That makes it easy for me. :)
  • My husbands family treats me like i am one of them. They call me little sis most of the time. I am really closer to them than i am to my own family (some of them anyways):)
  • I feel friendly and shy
  • I don't feel intimidated at all when I visit them at the cemetery!
  • Not too bad, but we only see them once every few months. We lived with them for a month or so before we were married, and that was weird.
  • The only person who seems to rock the waters in my family is my sister in law. Our Family is very close knit and she wasn't raised like that. She is very insecure and is always causing some kind of problem when we are all together. It has been causing a strain on the family because now they have kids and she uses them like pawns against us.
  • I'm more comfortable around my in laws than my own family.
  • i just treat them as my parents not as my in-laws. so i m pretty open and frank to my in-laws.but whatever i do ,its within the limits and not against their wishes,tradition and culture. secondly it depends upon the understanding between each other.also depends upon the perspection of one's in-laws towards the modern society.how comfortably they adapt the new changing environment.so i m pretty open and frank to my in-laws.but whatever i do ,its within the limits and not against their wishes.
  • My ex inlaws love me...they still contact me. We've been broken up for over a year and a half now.
  • Mine are gone now, but i loved them like my own parents
  • I love my Mother In Law. My Father In Law is very hard to get along with, but since I finally learned how to ignore him, it works out.
  • Not at all. My brother-in-law has the kind of sense of humor where he will find what annoys you most and force-feed it to you. I don't go to family gatherings anymore.
  • A bit awkward, but given they are in chicago, and they are actually the family of my bro's wife, and we live in north carolina, it doesn't matter!
  • I don't feel uncomfortable with them at all. If they don'tlike me, then fine. I don't need their approval at all. In-laws doesn't scare me.
  • very...my sister and i lived with them for awhile...it's funny coz i lived with them but i was separated from their son...LOL!...
  • I still after 32 yrs of being married, make sure everything is in its place etc. but for the most part my house is their house.
  • MY in-laws are wonderful and I enjoy a very nice relationship with them. We discuss and share our problems and good things quite openly and frankly.
  • I was always comfy with the father-in-law..it was the mother-in-law that made me nervous! :)
