Well it isn't that I don't like my in-laws, but man they drive me insane sometimes! We get along okay, sure, but they are so different than my parents, and it's hard to see eye to eye. Sometimes I just want to to tell them to back off and let us do our thing!
I don't think it helps that I am the youngest of 4 (so my parents are at the "been there done that" stage) and he is the oldest of his siblings. My parents are much more "you'll be alright, learn from it, make your own mistakes, well be here for support if you need us" whereas his parents are constantly putting in their two cents and giving us "advice" that we don't need. Some of it doesn't even make sense!
Okay rant over. Sometimes my parents drive me nuts too, of course, but man today it is by far my in-laws!
