Yes, I call them by aunt/uncle as we.ll.  I also say nana/pop/etc  I haven’t noticed if he does for my side though.  I’ll have to pick up on that.  

I figured I’ll be part of the family, why the hell not?  I think it’d be odd for me to call them by just their first names.

I have noticed that I don’t really address his parents by anything.  I just… talk hahaha

I call them aunt/uncle like Darling Husband does. We also call each other’s grandparents grandma and grandpa.

I call them by their first names because that’s what I’m used to. My Future Mother-In-Law slipped and called two of them my Aunt and Uncle the other day. It was cute because she caught herself and said “Oh well at least they are soon to be your Aunt and Uncle.” 

I’m never sure on what to call my Future Mother-In-Law though. Calling her “mom” doesn’t feel right to me and since I’m going to be part of the family “Mrs. HerLastName” sounds too formal now. I still feel awkward calling her by just her first name though. I’m so used to referring to her by her last name since that was more appropriate while dating. My Future Sister-In-Law never knows what to call her either so she usually just calls her “John’s Mom” *

*name is only an example.
