He sees his mom like once or twice a month. He hasn’t seen his dad in over 5 years O.o

My FI’s mom lives in NY (we’re in Ohio) so it is a plane trip. On average he sees her about once per year. This year will be the most they’ve seen each other because we’ll see her 3 times (for her wedding, my shower, and our wedding). 

FI’s dad lives in Michigan so just a drive away. I’d say on average we see them twice per year.

We’re about two hours away from both of our parents. Mr. Cardy sees his parents less than once a month…depending on what we have going on, it could be two or three months in-between visits!

Once a week is great!

Unfortunately FH’s dad passed away about 4 years ago.

FH and I probably see his mom about once a week, though they work for the same school district, so he occasionally sees her at work. And I think they talk/ text probably every day. But actually hanging out and spending time together– it’s about once a week. Though right now, I haven’t seen her in about 2-3 weeks and I’m starting to feel weird. I miss her! 

For my parents, I usually try to see them a few times a week, because I love hanging out with them, but since school started 5 weeks ago, I’ve only be able to see them on the weekends. FH comes with me something and sometimes he doesn’t, but he hangs out with my dad a lot without me, which I think is cute.

My FI sees his parents maybe once a month, MAYBE. He isnt very close with his family. On the other hand, we see my family at least 3 times a week.

We go to his parents’ place for dinner maybe once or twice a month.  I get along with them so I wouldn’t mind seeing them even more.  FI still has a lot of mail going to their place and we’re storing a bunch of our stuff at their place so he’s probably there once a week.  We don’t see my parents very often because we don’t live in the same city, so only a few times a year.

twice a year! We live pretty far from home now while my husband is in school so we take what we can get on holidays and summer break!

Once a year if he’s lucky. I still haven’t even met them and won’t until a few days before the wedding. Gotta love the military :/

We live about a 10 minute walk from my parents and a 10 minute drive from his parents. We see my parents quite a bit and he sees his pretty regularly. We’re more likely to hang out with my fam just because they’re closer and always over.

He sees his family about once a week, I probably see his family about once a month. I’m much busier than he is so sometimes he’ll stop by their house when I’m at school or work. When I see his family it is usually because of a birthday or special event.

We see my parents everyday since we live with them right now 😉

Maybe once a month/every other month? We see my parents a lot more frequently – at least a few times a month.

FH’s parents are in Northern CA and my parents are in Southern CA.  They are both retired and greatly enjoy traveling.  We spend Thanksgivings with them every year and in total we see them about 5 times a year and we see my parents about 3-4 times a year.

All.the.freaking.time.  Seriously though, every Saturday and most Sundays.  And yes, I am craving a weekend of just FI and me time : )

We live in Indiana, they live in Arizona, so maybe once or twice a year.

What’s really sad is that his parents won’t visit him. They will visit the sons that have grandbabies, but not him. I know it bothers him, but he won’t say anything. But his dad occasionally travels to the region on business so he seems him then. And we are taking a trip next month to see the whole family.
