Sometimes the in-laws are much like your own parents, and therefore easy to get along with. More often than not, that’s just not the case. Actually, it’s quite the opposite. You find yourself wondering if they are from a different planet. Because surely, these people who are so completely different and crazy cannot live in the same world as you. How could you have fallen in love with their son or daughter, from the same blood, as these alien monsters?
We found some of the craziest in-law stories on Reddit, and put them all in one place for you. They’ll make you laugh; they’ll make you cry. Most of all, they’ll make you realize it could always be worse.

Mine seem to think that they have to act really nice to me to my face and then drag me through the dirt when I leave. It’s great that I am marrying their daughter haha.(Sleepytim)
I love my wife’s parents, but her dad doesn’t understand how to lower his voice. When they get on the phone together, they yell back and forth. It’s just really irritating when I’m trying to watch TV.(Zombawesome)
