I really got blessed with a great future family. My FMIL has been the biggest help with my planning and generally just being there. And her husband has been welcoming me into his family since day one.
I don't have a great family myself, so I love that I get the feeling of a family with them.
Anyone else have a get set?

    I feel the same way. I'm so blessed knowing ill be having such great in laws. My dad abandoned me when I was 13 so I was raised without a father. My father in law has been so has taken the role as my father. His mother had been so supportive since she meet me. She cant wait to go to wedding expos with me. Both my FMIL and FFIL have been amazing. When his dad said "welcome to the family" I wanted to cry. I just feel so blessed.

    Mines are great in general, but no, they haven’t shown any interest in the wedding at all.

    Yes!! I actually have 2 sets of future in-laws as FH's parents divorced and remarried when he was still young. And both sets are fantastic!! His father and step-mom don't "help" much since they are 2 states away, but still absolutely sweet and supportive. And his mother and step-father live across town from us. His mom has done a LOT of wedding planning with me. Even if it's just asking how things are going once in a while. They're all the kindest and most caring souls so I am definitely so blessed to be getting them as parents!

    My fiancé’s mother died a number of years before I met him, so I never got to meet her. 😣 He thinks she would have liked me a lot and vice versa.

    His father and I get along well.

    His brother and sister in law are great and we also get along well. She joined me for a venue tour but we live over two hours away so she can’t be involved in much regular wedding planning really.

    I’m happy with my future in law situation!

    Yes! My in-laws are wonderful. So helpful and friendly and just loving people. My family is wonderful as well (just slightly on the nosey/busy-body side) but I am so glad that there is no drama with them

    I love my in-laws, his parent's and both his sisters have welcomed me and my family into their family with open arms. His sisters constantly tease each other about getting a "new, better sister" in November and his parents are just smitten with me. My parents have always been great and I love them dearly but it definitely took some time before they warmed up to FH (I think alot of it had to do with my ex being an ultra "manly man" like my dad and him being less so) but now that they have seen us together more they totally understand what I see in him and how good he is to me. FIL's and my parents also hang out together when we aren't there, which is almost a little scary lol but I'm glad they like each other. I saw what my parents went through with my brother's wife's family and it broke my mom's heart how nasty they were.

    That is so awesome that they all hang out together! My parents havent met his parents and probably wont until the wedding, if my parents even attend.

    I wish I had that scenario, but FH’s father passed away 20+ years ago, and his mom really has never been there for him. She lives on the other side of the country and only calls when she wants to “borrow” money. She owes us so much already, and didn’t even attempt to save for flights to California for our wedding, despite having a year’s notice. When he was going through some pretty serious medical issues, she never tried to come see him in the hospital and didn’t even call him to check in on how he was doing. So I’m not inheriting a good set of in-laws. However, I get to toot my own horn because my FH is getting a pretty sweet set! 😂 I have a large and loving family, and they’ve always been there for us. FH calls my dad for advice all the time and we meet up with my local family (uncles and cousins) on a regular basis for BBQs and to hang out. He loves my family!

    My FMIL feels more like a mom to me than my own mom! And FH grandma has accepted me from the get go. It’s a new thing for me to have people just accept me into their family, but I’ve been loving it!!

    Ugh I WISH!! my FIL don’t accept our same sex relationship. We definitely don’t receive the love you hope from in-laws. I’m so glad you know what you have - being on the other side of it sucks!!

    Yes! I have great in laws, even his grandparents and his aunt and uncle and cousins are amazing. Love them to pieces, but they're stressing me out with wedding planning with all their questions and suggestions. I know they mean well though, and I'm excited to officially be a part of their family!

    Yes I love my FH's family, the whole family is a blessing. His mom loooves me and she is really awesome, his aunts are so kind, and his sister and I get along so well. I knew his sister before I knew him. Even his uncles and cousins are fantastic. And his whole family is helping out with the wedding in so many ways. His mom bought me my dress and his sister got his tux those are just a couple of the many things they're doing to help us out.

    I'm really glad I'm welcome in their family, especially with his mom because I've had a terrible experience before. When i first met his mom she told me how she's very protective over her babies, especially him because it's always just been her and her kids. But that she also always said to herself that she wants to treat her daughter in law the way her own mother in law treated her. Very kindly and helped out with everything she can. I love my new family. Smiley cry Smiley heart
