Every time I hear someone complains about their in laws I always say it's a classic story, never ending. I wonder why it always happen. Why do we always have conflicts with our in laws? I also would want to hear stories about son/daughter in laws that age in good terms with their spouse's parents coz I believe there are a lot of good stories to hear out there.

I am really in very good terms with my in-laws. We get along really well and I am really happy about that. I think I am the only one they would want their son to marry. I dont think they are even gonna be happy if their son married his exes. Anyway, I am just kidding. I dont have conflicts with my in-laws at all cause we respect each other and they are also excited about having grand kids in the future so I hope we will have a baby soon.

@p3ks626 good for you..you are lucky.. @egonzales921 it doesnt mean that if you are not in good terms with your in laws... especially my mother in law means I am a bad person... she is just not easy to be with.. she have done a lot of bad things in the past that totally hurt me a lot emotionally and psychologically.. She never cared about her grandkid... her only grandkid... and I hate her for that.. she loves her adopted child more.... well i dont know what she have in mind but she is just really like that..

so far I am in good terms with my in laws although I havent really been with them a lot cause mostly they are abroad. I have heard lots of horror stories but it's mostly from people who actually live with their in laws. I guess that creates a lot of conflict.

Well i see most of them have real tough times with inlaws, due to the difference of opinion. My case i like my sister in law very much and we were good friends, so as my mother in law whose is my real mother like. It depends on how to take care of the relationship!

I am divorced and have an outstanding relationship with my ex-in-laws! We are great friends and they are so supportive. MIL is a Christian Counselor and is great to go to for advice. The are excellent grandparents for my daughter, as are my parents. My ex husband was an only child and is not very helpful to his parents. So I make it a point to check in with them at least 1-2 times a week. I love them!

Yes, I am and my in'laws loves me so much. When we talk about in-laws, we're almost always talking about mothers-in-law, it seems, with sisters-in-law running a close second. My mother-in-law is just amazing. She is my darling, very sweet and loving personality. To love your spouse is to honor and appreciate his or her family. After all, his or her parents helped create this person with whom you are in love and building a life. But sometimes it's easier said than done. Let's face it: One of your biggest challenges is becoming part of each other's families. It takes time, patience, and kindness -- and sometimes a mediator or translator.
