@alyssa742:  I agree.

Since Mothering Sunday has been and gone in the UK I wont be doing anything.  But SO and I sent separate cards (not from both of us)

I asked a similar question about my Future Mother-In-Law who I have never met and everyone said they thought it would be sweet. I sent a card and a gift “to my future mother-in-law”. I think it’s a nice gesture.

I wasn’t even engaged to my fiance at the time when I got his mom a Mothers day card, I think its a nice gesture!

I get my Mother-In-Law one each year, even though she technicall isn’t my Mother-In-Law yet(FIL’s FI). His mom isn’t in the picture

We don’t even sign my name to my husband’s card to her. We get along fine but she’s not my mom.

I get one for my mom and one for his mom and sign both of our names on both cards LOL  But I don’t get a specific Mother-In-Law card, just a nice mom card.

We’re engaged too, so I just bought a card that said “love the both of us.” There’s a whole section for that, at least at my CVS! I just avoided ones that said mother-in-law. I think it’s a nice gesture.

For my Mother-In-Law I did. I got a card that says to mother-in-law (it was the only one in the store) but I know eventually we’ll start getting her one card and that will be that. We also ordered really expensive flowers to be delivered to her house. If it was my Future Mother-In-Law I would just get a card from both of you. I definitely think you should acknowledge it, but you don’t necessarily need to get your own separate card that says mother-in-law on it.

My Fiance takes care of that. He’ll usually buy gifts for his side of the family and say its from both of us.  Thats good, cause if anyone has ready any of my posts, I’m not much of a gift/card giver.

Ever since we were dating, we’ve always just given our moms one card from both of us.

No I don’t get my Mother-In-Law a card. I don’t even put my name on the card Darling Husband get’s for her.  We have a good relationship but in my opinion mother’s day is reserved for people who play a mother type role in my life and that would be only my mom and grandma. I know my mom would be slightly hurt if I got Mother-In-Law a card.

We usually always give one card from both of us but this year since its our first year with her being my mother in law I got my own card. Darling Husband did for my mom as well.

Nope, but mostly because my Future Mother-In-Law (and FFIL) are not really card people. We do give her a gift from the two of us.
