Spend a day with your mother-in-law or spend a day with your father-in-law?

How close are you with your future in-laws? If you had to choose one in-law to spend the day with, would it be your future mother-in-law or your future father-in-law?

Would you rather spend a day with your mother-in-law or your father-in-law?

    Probably father-in-law since we'd probably mostly ignore each other and just do our own things. Smiley xd

    Mother-in-law. We've spent plenty of time alone and we get along well. Love future father-in-law as well, we just don't have much in common.

    I have done this a few times before! I recently had a business trip near FH's family (20-30 minutes away from them), and had time to hang out with FMIL the day I drove up. We like a lot of the same books, TV shows, and movies, so it's easy to hang out. FH was convinced we'd be talking about him the whole time, but it took hours before he even came up in conversation. Smiley xd I feel really lucky that we get along!

    I would have to say my mother-in-law. She passed away before my FW and I met. The way my FW talks about her makes me think I owe this woman a world of thanks for creating the most amazing woman for me. I would really just love talking to her about her daughter and let her know that making her daughter happy is my number one goal every single day.

    Mother in Law for sure!! I love my father in law, but we don't have a lot in common, and he's getting on in years, so he's not real active. MIL, however, is a lot of fun, and I really enjoy her company!

    Mother-in-law! I love them both, but I don't know what I would talk about with him!

    Future mother in law. Her and I have a great relationship where I tend to be more reserved around his dad.

    MIL for sure. We have a lot of interests in common and get along really well. I like my FFIL too but it would be more awkward silences lol

    Father in law. He’s deceased, so I had the chance, I would choose him.

    My fiancé’s parents are both deceased. They both passed when he was younger. I’d love to be able to talk to his mom and tell her how proud I am of her son and the person he has become Smiley heart

    I’m closer to my FIL so I would choose my MIL. I’m struggling to get to know her the way I would like to.

    I'd probably spend the day with my future mother-in-law. I have more in common with her.

    Mother-in-law! I love her to pieces and have spent many days with her. She's become such a close friend and I can't wait to be part of her family. Father-in-law is great too, but we have less in common and would struggle to make small talk lol. I've spent the day with him before and it was definitely more forced.
