I would find this so odd to see / hear this from someone. It’s like I am not a brazillian swimwear model (even though that would be awesome!) it would be silly to refer to myself as one! 😉

People would be all like “bitch please, check yourself”.

amanda1988:  “it was just an easier thing to say then “the mother of my boyfriend”” — Nobody says that though.

  • Mo-ther-in-law = 4 syllables
  • boy-friend’s-mom = 3 syallables = easier to say

Plus if you say Mother-In-Law and someone knows (or thinks) you’re not married, you’re inviting them to ask “Oh, you got married?” Then you’ll have to say “well, no but we’ve been together for so long, it’s almost like we’re married, so….” Whereas if you’d just said “boyfriend’s mom,” no explanation required. And if it’s someone that you wouldn’t feel compelled to explain it to, then why do you care enough to change it to MIL? Seems way easier to just use the accurate words.

Tasha7:  ITA re those terms. My SO isn’t allowed to call me ‘wifey’ even after we’re married. Just ew.
