Hey guys, I’m not new to the website but new to actually posting something. I have been following along for a couple of months and am also anticipating an engagement soon. My BF and I have been talking about it for a while. We wanted to meet each others parents before making anything final. He recently met mine and they love him. However, I am terrified to meet his. They are very conservative and I’m more liberal. I terrified that they will not like me. Dec. 18 they are flying in and staying for three weeks. So if anything will happen it will be then. We are tentatively planning for a wedding next year. We don’t feel the need to keep waiting; however, if his parents hate me the whole equation changes. So I am just really nervous to say the least. You all seem like such a great group of women so I’m excited to join you.

Welcome to the hive! Don’t worry about political opinions. If you don’t talk about them, they won’t matter. Our parents are TOTALLY opposite eachother and we had a great 2 hr. long dinner without mentioning it once!

I try to not mention it-although it comes up a lot with them. I just don’t pay attn to those things-or really care. Just don’t really say anything.

Welcome to the HIVE!! I was nervous when I met the Fi’s parents too, but it turned out great! Our parents even met before we got engaged so that worked out well too! So they’ll be staying with you guys for 3 weeks? Thats such a large dose…I hope it goes well!! Good luck!

welcome to the posting side of things 🙂
If your FI loves you, I’m sure his parents will too. After all, they raised him! Just be respectful but yourself – you’ll do great!

Hi! 🙂 You’ll be fine. Most parents will begin to warm up once they see how happy their child is. The first time I met my BFs mother she pretty much ignored me! His father was very attentive and kind. Now it’s the other way around! (They are separated). Relationships of all kinds ebb and flow, and as long as you are kind and genuinely seem interested you will excel.

Welcome! Don’t be nervous, just stay away from controversial topics and you’ll be fine. We have the same issue in terms of political views but it is rarely a problem. Although I must say… I sent a wedding invite to the white house and couldn’t wait to show the Republican in laws the commemorative response we got back signed by the Obamas. See, later you might even find it fun!
