Yes, although we aren’t married or living together yet, but when we are and until we have children we will probably split up and visit our mothers separately, depending on what our mums want to do.

My mom lives 530 miles away and FI’s mom lives across the country (we’re in the US) so we don’t spend mother’s day with our moms. We do like to be involved with our families, so IF we lived in a situation where we could see both moms on the same day, we would probably do breakfast with one and dinner with the other. FI and I are one of those couples that does everything together so it’s normal for us.

I don’t see anything wrong with your situation. As long as everyone is happy, who cares.

I don’t see the problem with splitting up for the day if the events clash. I’m sure if one was a brunch and one a dinner then you’d go to both but if they are both a lunch it makes sense. We spend mother’s day with my Mum more than DH’s as she lives in our city but if we can get back to DH’s hometown as well then we do.

We’re usually together, away from our mothers.  We call both our Moms.  Sometimes DH will make a trip to our hometown, I think one year he was there for mother’s day.  If we were all in the same city, I think we would spend part of the day with my parents, and part with his.

aquastar:  This year we’re celebrating MIL’s mother’s day on Saturday because it works best for the whole family so DH is free to come with my family when we celebrate my mom!  I wouldn’t worry so much about being seperated from DH on mother’s day but I also want to celebrate my awesome MIL!

aquastar:  FI is having dinner with his mom, grandmother, brother and niece and I’m having lunch with my mom. We might do dinner with both families in the future but we haven’t talked about it. FI’s family has a feed of lobster for Mother’s Day and my mom hates lobster.

aquastar:  This is the first Mother’s Day we will spend together since I am a FTM, but prior to me having our child we would spend it with my mom only because his mom typically goes to his grandma’s, and they are 3 hours away. To make a 3 hour drive just to have dinner seemed unreasonable and still does. If she were to stay home and anticipate spendingit with us, we would probably go have lunch with her or something, but since her mom is still living she prefers to spend it with her.

aquastar:  Its different because I’m a mom and my husband wants to spend Mothers Day and Fathers Day with his child and with me. However his parents live 2 hours away so typically we see them on Saturday and see my mom on Sunday but always together pre kids and definitely together now. We also want our daughter to see her grandmothers over the weekend as well.
