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??

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

    So FH is Colombian. Only he and his mother are here in Georgia. (They came over when his mom married his step dad)
    While I don’t text his mom as regularly as I should because of a language barrier, I am included in his family’s group chat, and that makes me feel pretty special ❤️
    I’m just always slow at responding cause my Spanish isn’t that great 😂

    I would say I have very close relationship with my soon to be mother in law. That’s said I text with them quite often because we are in a group chat. I have included my fiancé with a group chat that includes the ladies in my family( mom, sister, aunt, and grandma).

    We keep in contact, my FMIL is pretty nice for the most part, she does have moments where I'm not sure how to take what's she's meaning lol but otherwise cool lady.

    I have a good relationship but they live 7 hours away so I don’t know them super well. I try to text my FMIL about wedding stuff to keep her included and also just things about FH’s kids. I’m sure it’ll keep growing.

    I occasionally text my FMIL about getting together on weekend for a hike (I have a puppy and they have 2 labs). My FFIL and I exchange snapchats of our pups throughout the week and will compete with who has the better happy hour deal/view. Haha

    Almost never. His father passed away a year before we met and his mother isn't very phone savvy. I would call her before I texted her. Lol

    I have a great relationship with my future in laws, so fairly often I will text them! His dad isn't a big texter so it's usually his mom.

    Sometimes. I text my future MIL a LOT. I have my future FIL's number, but rarely text unless it's a group chat making plans or something.

    I have in the past, but English is their second language so I just stick to talking in person

    I talk to my mother in law a few times a week. My brother in law messages me on Facebook every other week or so. My sis in law is not a phone person so she does not talk much or answer the phone but when I see her, its all love.
