    I have to say that I get along well with FI's family and friends. We've gotten along ever since I've met them and they've welcomed me and treated me just like family.

    Fi sister and I have had issues. However, I have learned to feed her with a long handed spoon, fi had to establish some ground rules with her, she thought I was "stealing" her brother from her. Needless to say, she respects me and my space and I do the same for her. At first I was so hell bent on making sure his fam liked and accepted me, because I have no immediate family in Tampa, however I have learned that everyone wont love or like me even if Im marrying into their family, and Im okay with that now. However, that doesnt change how I treat them, Im still nice and respectful, because my mama raised me right:)

    FI family is kinda scattered some here in AZ, CA, and LA.  His momma passed away a few yrs back never had the chance to meet her. I know she woulda loved me. lol, His dad adores me (also lives with us) and we are really close with his younger brother and fsil. He has 2 aunts that I have met so far and cousins galore. Also has 2 step brothers that we see here and there, not so close to them. His friends all like me (as far as I know) lol  there happy to see him finally getting married at the ripe ol age of 43!!!

    I stay far away from most of his family. Incuding his mammie! His sister and cousin are cool. But I can't stand his mom or aunts! So to keep me from being on the next epsiode of Snapped I just stay away!

    I get along very well with FI's family and his friends.  There was a misunderstanding between one of his friends and I because I was kind of shy when I first met them and he thought I was stuck up.  He knows the truth now and we get along for the most part.

    y'all put miss2mrscj in the corner for her comment : "I stay far away from most of his family. Incuding his mammie!"...HILARITY @ IT'S FINEST!!!

    I don't have any sisters so initially I tried HARD to get his sisters to accept me (he has 5 sisters and he's the baby of all of them - DRAMA WITH A CAPITOL D)...but after years passed, the funny thing that happened was his mom & Iactually  became super-duper close because she went thru the same thing with his dad's sisters...so now I am cordial with the SILs as they are NOT my friends and vice versa and we do not KICK IT outside of family functions which works out for all involved...LMBAO @ dat!!!  Tongue out
