Haha. My mom has been with my dad for over 30 years and still doesn’t know what to say. 🙂

If they refer to themselves and Mr. and Mrs. I’d just go with that until/unless they say otherwise.  At least they say something! Most people don’t know what to call them!  I just avoid calling my Mother-In-Law anything!

I just say their first names … haha. I assume it is quite weird to not know!!!

Is there anyone else, like a wife/husband of your fiances sibling you can get a que from?

I would just say "What would you like me to call you?"

I call my Mother-In-Law "mom" in emails, but I haven’t called her that to her face yet (and she refers to herself as mom or Jane intermittently). Will be much easier when we have kids, so we can just call her Grandma! 🙂

Pengy, I’m the same way.  I can call my Mother-In-Law "mom" in an email, but I just don’t know how to say it to her face.  So far, I’ve been sticking with first names, but I’m not sure if I will change that over the years.
