I actually told his mom she should make an account so I CAN add her and keep in touch with her more since we only see them once a week! I LOVE his family...well, his mom and dad (the sister, not so great lol) and they love me (possibly more than aforementioned sister) so I'd love to be able to add them!

I really dislike having my husband's family on my FB, but they're there because it's rude if I don't. So, yes, I would, to not be rude, but I wouldn't like it.

i eel kind of the same way. i haven't accepted the request, but i feel pressure to. it's just that if she wanted to get to know me or be friendly, try saying more than two words to me. i'll probably accept it, but i'd rather not have them know everything i say or like (granted i have a separate account for eden stuff, but still.

I wouldn't add them. We just aren't close enough, and I would feel weird about them being able to see all my conversations with my friends, pictures etc. I also wouldn't want to be FB friends with my own parents, but they don't have accounts. I have denied requests from a few of my parents friends.

I'd decline. Or just ignore it and pretend I couldn't find it. I wouldn't feel comfortable and it would be annoying like someone was trying to keep an eye on me when I'm perfectly capable not to mention old enough to keep an eye on myself.

But I'm the same guy who told his nephew (in front of that nephew's mom)
"NEVER CONFESS, nothing good can come of it".
She did not find that nearly as amusing as I did, but it's true nevertheless!

I Have my partner's parents on my FB. I'm good friends with them and think of them more my parents then my own parents.

Yep. But then I have filters on my facebook stuff that limits who can see what content. And I hardly ever post on facebook to begin with.

I'm not on FB, so I'm saved from that dilemma. But I think if they asked to be added, it would be really rude to say no. I wouldn't particularly want to add them, but I'd feel like I had no choice but to do it.

I have his mom as a friend on Facebook. She lives quite a while away, so it's easier to keep in contact online.

How do you refuse their friend request gracefully?

Accept it but then set up an "alternative lifestyle" FB identity as well.

Yes, but they would go on a list that I could "hide" certain things from them just like I would do if my own parents got one. Some things just aren't any of their business.

Master's mother isn't ... technologically advanced enough to do so. In fact, she quit teaching school when computers were introduced into the classroom as a requirement.

I guess another factor is that his mother doesn't even know about me yet. I don't think she'll know about me until he and I decide to make our relationship more permanent and we're able to be together on a more constant basis.

Have both his folks on my FB. They're pretty rad. They also don't get on much and I never post anything horrible anyway, so...

I added my SO's mother in the past, but she used that access to my profile to start problems. She'd decide she didn't like someone I was friends with, and then try to start drama between me and my SO by saying crap about it.
I finally got fed up with it when she tried to do that over someone that SHE was fb friends with too. I removed her from my friends list. In response, she said I was no longer allowed over at their house. Logical, right? This was when we were teenagers, so that was where we always spent time together.
I mean, what sane, logical adult thinks that banning someone from your house is an equivalent (or fair) reaction to being unfriended on a social networking site?

I would, and I am. I get along with them just as well as I do with my own parents, so no problems.

Yes. If his parents weren't past on I would.

I'm FB friends with most of my family (parents, siblings, kids, some of my uncles).

No, I'd never add any family members.

I don't really like the close-minded personality of his parents (They're extremely against our open relationship, I've tried to explain the mechanics of it but they refuse to listen.) and I'd never add my own family, I hate most of them. The only one I like is my grandmum, she raised me and is one of the few people outside of my friend that are supportive of my life choice (to be childfree) and my hobby on here.

-is the only intelligent one in the family and is therefore a black sheep-

I didn't even add my mom's husband.

Yes, but I probably wouldn't like it.
I try to keep my FB clean though, so it probably wouldn't be a big deal.
