    I think it’s sweet. If he feels close enough to her to call her that then time doesn’t matter.

    Eh, I wouldn’t do it, but if he likes it, and your grandma likes it, then it’s all good.

    Personally I wouldn’t do it, but I know other married couples who do, so yeah I think it’s “normal”.

    I think it is their business what he calls his mother-in-law. I don’t call my Mother-In-Law “mom” but if someone wants to, that is their business no matter how long the people have been married.

    I find it odd and cute all at once.  Odd to call anyone other than your mother mom and cute to be comfortable and close enough with someone to do it.  Fiance stepmother calls his grandmother “mom”.  They’ve been married around 7years or so.  One thing is for sure, I will not be calling FI’s mom that.


    ETA: My uncle calls my grandmother “mom”.  However, my uncle is in his 70’s.  My grandmother is 98.  My uncle has been married to my aunt for 50 years tho.

    I don’t think there is a “normal” in this situation, but I certainly wouldn’t be offended big it. If your grandma has a problem with it, let her deal with it, but it’s not your place to get offended.

    I don’t know if it’s normal or not.  But I don’t see what the problem is
