My in-laws tolerate me, i think MIL likes me but is too much of a yes dear type to go against FIL who does not. Altho just lately he has been IMing me and being really polite, almost sociable, absence does make the heart grow fonder LOL ( he has been civil since the kids were born, DH told him play nice or you don't see me and the kids either)
DH and my brother don't talk at all - don't know if my brother has figured it out yet as DH was very polite about it (tell him I'm sorry I can't come to his wedding, tell him we couldn't get a babysitter kind of thing), Brother did the dirty one to many times, don't blame DH one bit.
My Mum, can't make up her mind LOL
1st: loved him b/c he married her solo mother daughter and made me 'respectable'
2nd: Hated him b/c him didn't change from the builder I married into a 'suit' earning $50K a year
3rd:decided to tolerate him b/c after 13 years he is still here and she knows if she tried to make me choose he would win without a second thought
Phew, Final stretch
My Father and Step Mother
They are the parents everyone should be so lucky to have (why oh why did he have to wait until I was 33 and getting ready to leave to meet and marry this wonderful woman). My dad and SM treat DH like he was their own and they treat their own like the most important things on earth.
PS: In case you didn't guess I love my Dad and StepMum very very much
