    No idea. They haven’t really met each other.

    I don’t really understand the question. Why or how would my in-laws know my personal friends? They met a few at the wedding, but I am pretty sure that neither remember each other much.

    I VOTED – AVERAGE

    Mr TTR & I ended up Eloping to a Destination Wedding… so no one attended (cut down on the DRAMA for sure)

    In reality, as Encores we are two individuals who have an excellent relationship, but our “relations” wouldn’t have a lot in common

    Our kids have different life experiences from one family to the other, and our Elderly Parents a whole other reality compared to ANY of us

    NONE of them would have anything in common with our friends who are in their 50s & 60s

    Consequently, we tend to socialize with the various factors at seperate ways / events.

    I guess it is the reality that a lot of Encores encounter.

    Especially at our age, where life is more about US and our Friends … while our Elderly Parents and Grown Children are off living their own experiences

    Hope this helps,

    Never met. We’ve been together 3 years and our immediate families haven’t all met yet. FIs parents are awesome though.

    My in-laws met my friends at the wedding. But to be honest I’d NEVER let my in-laws feelings about my friends alter the wedding plans.

    I don’t think they met at our wedding! They wouldn’t really have had a reason to talk…

    My inlaws had to reason to really meet my friends.  Other than pleasantries, I don’t think they’ve ever exchanged words, nor have they ever had to.

    Yes, they get along with our friends.

    most of my friends have met the inlaws. FI has 2 brothers who still live with his parents and FI’s friends are basically his brothers friends too. We’ve all kind of merged friends, so they go over to the inlaws often, and everyone gets along. And some of our other friends have gone over there a few times too (for our engagement party and other dinners). Everyone lives close to eachother, so it’s easy for everyone to know eachother

    @Ap2010:  As far as my own personal friends, they only really know one of them. FI went with my best friend to prom, so they know her and like her. The others they aren’t too familiar with.
