I'm actually visiting them for the month right now, we're on friendly terms, but we're not especially close.

His mom and I used to be pretty close until she started drinking heavy and creating bizarre scenarios pertaining to other family members. She managed to alienate everyone around her...and finally me as well. Since she realized I had had enough of her drunken rampages and made up issues, she has tried her best to get between my husband and I, but to no avail. I just completely refuse to deal with her and avoid her calls and stay home when my hubby has to see her. It has gotten so bad, my husband doesn't want to deal with her and she has made wild accusations about her grandson-my husband's son-to the point where even he will avoid her as well. Just last week she made a point of telling my husband about a personal conversation she and I had a couple of years ago and let him know I had borrowed money from her. I paid it back shortly after borrowing it and never said a word when she borrowed a few thousand from me when I got my small settlement from the wreck. She has proven she is not to be trusted and should thank her lucky stars I am not vengeful....the things she has told me in confidence would send my hubby to flippin' Pluto if he ever found out!!! I guarantee, he will not find out from me, though--not going there!!

I came from a very dysfunctional family. Hubby's family has been my surrogate family since I was a teen.

My husband doesn't speak to his dad or step mom. We have been over there twice in six years of being together. Both times were VERY awkward since they have a strained relationship. I stay away as much as possible.

I don't like them, and they clearly do NOT like me. However, we all try to be cordial to each other. I'm not going to lie, it is definitely a challenge. However, I definitely make the effort because my husband is worth that.

Not like we are best buddies in the world, but we generally get a long most of the time. But just like my family, they are dis-functional and have their very annoying personality traits and ideals etc.

They're a mixed bag! I was super close with his mom, but she passed away in November of 2010. His dad, I would rather stay away from. He's bad news!! We're still very close with his mom's parents and see them often. So it's really back and forth. Some of them I love, others I would like to avoid.

I'm actually closer to his family then I am to my own, which is pretty effing bad to say. The only people in MY family I'm close to is my sister and step father. They were the ones whose really stuck up for me, the rest just don't care. My mother pulled a doozy lately that left me in tears and my sister, and even got my husband upset.
I told my inlaws and they gave me advice which I'm following, and it's working.
I guess you can say I adopted his family as my own while dragging my sister and father into it. They love his family too :3

The only family that my wife had was her mom and we got along great. Sadly she passed away six years ago from Breast Cancer.

We're friendly. Sadly his brother lives pretty far away and is constantly busy with his three girls and their dance classes, etc. to see him very often but we're still friendly with them too.

We are friendly with each other. I think his mom is one of those women who think no one is good enough for their son.

We dont like each other. His parents think I am overly sensitive, and dont know who to have fun. I think they are liers who refuse to remember their sons are all grown up. And they have clear favorites between kids and grandkids.

My husband's father and mother separated when he was a teenager. His father, an extremely traditional Chinese man, lives in Canada and we only communicate with him by phone occasionally...my husband's not very close to him. I used to be quite friendly with my mother-in-law who resides in Calif, but the older she gets the more gossipy she became, so I don't feel like talking with her on the phone anymore. When I mentioned her problem to my husband, he said she's been like that forever, and that's why he only deals with her when necessary. One of the reasons why we moved to a different state is to get away from all the family dramas from both sides of our families.

I have two significant others, I am very close to the family of one, they invite me over all the time and treat me really well, I feel very welcomed. We don't always have similar personalities or values, but we get along well.
My other partner's family lives in Texas, and except for her mom, they don't know she's dating anyone, much less that she's queer and in a polyamorous relationship... I don't think we'd get along amazingly, we have very little in common, but I bet I could have a friendly, civil time with them as long as they didn't know I was dating their daughter.

I'm so close to my mother in law! She is the best. And I know she likes me a lot. I get along with all of my SO's family. They are wonderful and very nonjudgmental.
