Would your in-laws support you in a new relationship?



My friend lost her DH 2 years ago when he killed himself. She has since met and become engaged to a loving man. Her in-laws are still very active in her life. I think it is amazing.

They would. Definitely. They'd still want to be in my life and their grand children's lives

I don't know, probably just because they never wanted me apart of their lives anyways. I'm not good enough for their son I guess.

They wouldn't know. We don't talk to them at all they've never even met our youngest.

I think so...his mom anyway, and that's all he considers family anyway.
She hated me when we started dating and first got pregnant...but we've gotten close. And when SO and I almost broke up I told her about it...and she said it didn't matter. Me and LO were family and she would want to be there for the both of us if we needed her

I think they may not be as involved in my life, like talking about what's happening with ME as much as they do now....
But I have no doubt at all they would be as involved (if not more!) with their grandchild as they are now. They adore my daughter

My fiance passed away,



His family was awesome when I started dating my now husband, he came to a few functions they had... they loved him as long as I was happy...
They told him they would skin him if he made me cry, I think that's why he asked to marry me hahaha

I don't know. I would hope they did, but they didn't like me until maybe a year after I had my first daughter and things are still awkward between me and his mom so maybe not. I think his sister would though because we are very close.

That's sad.
My SO mom and step dad has only seen my LO 6 times.
She's about to be 7 months old.
They only stayed less then 5 min after I had her in the hospital.



I'll probably never get over it.
My daughter deserves grandparents who adore her and are around. Not how they are.



Some people I will never understand.

My parents are awesome so the boys don't go without grandparents.



Dh's family isn't worth trying to build a relationship. He grew up in an abusive terrible environment. It's our job to protect the kids from people like them.

I wish there was a good excuse to why they never call or see her.
They have no really issues, to me they just don't care.
I don't know. It sucks.
But my mom adores her and is always around. So that's good!

That is really sweet! <3



My MIL is absolutely amazing, & I know it would be hard for her but she'd know that I love her son. However, she would realize I just want somebody to share my life with. I think I'd probably have a harder time than she would.

They would.
I'd actually have more support from my in-laws than my parents because if my husband died, I'd start dating girls. :lol: My stepbrother-in-law is as gay as gay can be.
