They like her better than me. I don’t blame them.

Family are like fish; If they stay around to long they start to stink up the house.

My wife gets along with my parents as well as I do, we’re not very close, visit a couple times a year.

I dont like her family much. It shows regularly that my wife loves her family more then they love her. They’re useless people in my mind.

It is funny that is such an American (and Canadian) thing to say. Our cultures differ so much from say Japan or the middle east where it is typical to live with your parents until they die.

Yes, although we don't live near them and we don't see them too often, maybe a couple times a year . We see my wife's family even less, and I have to admit I have a hard time hanging out with them sometimes, but they're good people just trying to get by just like us.

This is the situation for my wife and my parents as well. My mom adored my wife and they spoke on the phone almost every day. My dad thinks she is Wonder Woman.

The other way (me to her parents) isn't as filled with rainbows and sunflowers.

Everyone loves my wife, it is me who is difficult to get warmed up to. Her parents lost out on the in-law contest for sure.

#10 7 months ago

In my experience, most women don't get along with their mother-in-laws. There is just something about the dynamic that causes friction.

Same...don’t it drive you crazy all she does for them then they shit on her...especially when she needs something...I’ve been dealing with it 20 years now...mine says she knows...she does it so when she meets her maker she can say she did all she could...I commend her for that but it doesn’t drive me any less crazy..........Joey

My wife likes my Father, my Mother, not so much. It's a reoccurring theme, it was the same with with my ex-wife too.

#13 7 months ago

I think my folks probably like my wife more than me.

+ Her parents are fan-fuckin-tastic, so it's win-win!!!!

#14 7 months ago

My parents have been gone for about 3 years now but there was no one that did more for them than my wife and I. My parents LOVED my wife. She did all the little caring things for them that men just don't do...especially for my mom.

#15 7 months ago

My parents and brother have passed away so I dont have much family left but we got along great. The only time my wife hears from her family is when they need money. THE ONLY TIME. So she has finally learned to not take their calls.

For the most part. But there are limits to exposure, and the “mother-in-law clause” in our marriage. If we spend the day/evening with the mother-in-law, we get to have a few drinks when it’s done.

#17 7 months ago

No, and I don't like hers either (but I still hate my mom more than her parents).

Damn, your mom touch your soft wood or something.

#23 7 months ago

Dad yes, mom no!

#24 7 months ago

My parents are awesome, and so is my wife. They get along famously. My dad is a quiet dude that’s super easy going. My mom is great and extremely supportive when it comes to the grandkids, and she and my wife can talk about anything.

My in laws though... Yikes! The Dad is an artist, and while not a bad guy, is certainly not my type of dude. He’s pedantic and smug for a guy that accomplished a lot less than I have. The mother is borderline evil. Awful women.

#25 7 months ago

She loves my parents..... I refuse to see hers lol. They hate me

I don't even want to know what the hell that's supposed to mean....BUT...

When you get married, and tell your mom that you're now expecting your first child, and her response is LITERALLY "Okay, bye." and she shuts the door in your face...

F that B--ch. I don't need that in my life, and nobody else that has relatives like that should put up with their crap either!

#27 7 months ago

I guess this is something an unmarried man doesn't really think much about.

Or give a shit about.

#28 7 months ago

My wife can't stand my mom . I can only take so much of my mom but I only see her 2 days a year. You would have to meet her to understand.

#29 7 months ago

I've got a Debra vs. Marie Barone kind of situation in my family

#30 7 months ago

I may be lucky. I get along well with her parents, she gets along well with mine. If I could buy the house next to ours and have my in-laws move in next door I would. With that said I am sure both our mothers will outlive their husbands. When our mothers are too old to live on their own we will probably have them move in with us. You don't hear that often.
