Do you text your in-laws?

What's your relationship like with your future in-laws? Are you so close with your sister or mother in-law that you text regularly? Are you in a family group chat?? Or is your communication more "in case of emergencies only"?

Do you text your in-laws? Never, always, or sometimes?

    I have a great relationship with my FMIL, and we text all the time! She's awesome. I'm also close with FFIL, but he's not real tech savvy, so doesn't really text.

    Sometimes. We were pretty close up until the engagement, but now she seems distant. FMIL and I do work in the same building and live in the same neighborhood, so I do always text her about traffic Smiley xd

    Text FMIL and FBIL, but FFIL doesn’t own a cell phone.

    On rare occasion if something has to be communicated while one of us is at work. We aren't close so we don't text just to chat.

    We can’t 😭 I send FIL messages on Facebook and WhatsApp but my MiL doesn’t understand technology and is still convinced it’s a fad

    I text my FMIL. She prefers calling but she likes to call at 10 AM on week days. I'm at work, I can't have personal conversations in my office daily.

    Not really. I actually message my FH's aunt probably the most on Facebook.

    We’re close but we don’t communicate daily. My FMIL does not have a cellphone. My FFIL sends me snapchats sometimes. I know my fiancé and my mom text every now and then.

    My FMIL is 75, has an 📱, and knows how to use it.

    She doesn’t want to bother people, so we contact her more often.

    However, we text and talk fairly regularly.

    Almost never. H isn't very close with them so neither am I. Occasionally his mom will text about a gift idea for him but that's all.

    Sometimes. I text them quite often, at least once every other week just to check in and see how they are doing

    I'm really close with his mom, but I don't text. Always call. I hate texting.

    When I need to. I don’t usually just text to chat, but I don’t text my own parents just to chat either.

    I pretty regularly text with FSIL, and we hang out frequently. I am closer with FHs step-mom so I text her sometimes. Occasionally FFIL will send me family updates but he doesn't text regularly with anyone.

    One of my important qualities was that I got along with FHs family and thankfully we all get along great when we are all together! We took our first family vacation together at the beginning of August too! Smiley heart

    I'm in the family group chat and FMIl will text me occasionally. But when it comes to planning/scheduled visits I let FH take the lead. I don't want to be the bad guy if we can't make a trip home.

    I get along very well with my FFIL and FMIL! His mom lives in Texas so we don’t get to see her often but we still Snapchat almost every day 😂 we also have family group chats once in a while.
