nygirla:  Firstly I want to say I think it is beautiful that your FI and DS have a wonderful realtionship and accept and love each other. It is also amazing that your FMIL is excited to meet your son and you, that seems like she will be very welcoming and accepting of both of you. Just pray about it and be open-minded and most importanly be yourself.

The first time I met my MIL and FML, I had been with my DH for only 6 months, however in our culture that is WAY too long to go without meets the parents. So I was very scared and just prayed that they would like me. I tried my best to be open to all of them (all his siblings were there as well) I’ll be honest it was a little strange but here we are over two years later, DH and I are married, have a baby and my in laws accept me as their own.

Be positive babe. Good Luck!

Don’t sweat it! I met my inlaw’s about 2 years into our relationship. We actually have a long distance relationship and so after a few visits she invited me to stay at her home when I would come to visit so that I saved money. I’m quite the introvert and just a year before going to visit my fiance for the first time I was still hiding behind my mothers back when strangers would try to talk with me lol! I was quite shy. Anyway things went well. Just be yourself! It will be a little awkward but keep conversation flowing on appropriate topics and perhaps ask your fiance ahead of time of any topics you should stay away from during conversation unless brought up by your fiance’s family. Good luck and remember to just be yourself! 🙂
