When I brought my FI home to meet my parents, they gave him the third degree about his prior marriage, why it ended, whose fault it was, etc. I was so embarassed! My FI was honest, but tight-lipped, I could tell he was uncomfortable answering their questions! (How do you answer: "What would keep you from leaving my daughter in this marriage?") I managed to change the subject (I think I asked if I could pierce my tongue) but it was an uncomfortable night.
Did your parents interrogate your FI about thier prior marriage(s)?
Did your FMIL / FFIL interrogate you?
How did you/your SO handle it??

- Wedding: September 2009 - City Hall
No one interrogated me. My FMIL asked me personally in a private conversation she and I were having, about my previous relationship, but it was in of a "chatty women are chatting" sort of way, not a "what makes you think you’re good enough for my son" sort of way. I’m worried that my family won’t be as happy for me with this engagement announcement (we haven’t told anyone yet). Like instead of "congratulations" I’m going to get "are you sure this time?" type of comments. I guess I’ll see soon enough.

Since I’m divorced, my family (grandparents and sis and bro in law) was not going to interrogate him alot, but they did want to know like MightySapphire’s family why he divorced, who’s fault it was basically, and most of all…WAS he capable of being faithful to one woman? Especially after what I had gone thru, my closest relatives just wanted to make sure I was with an ok kind of guy.
