We walk right in to both houses.
There are 7 kids in my family, and us and even close friends have always just walked in. If I ever rang the bell, my parents would be so confused. I may have to try it just for fun!

I just walk on in for both my parents and the IL’s. I drop by the IL’s all the time, and Mother-In-Law hates when people knock. She prefers people to just let themselves in, so we do all the time.
I also have keys to both houses, so I just usually use my key.

It’s a little different now that they live in a different state, but when we were all in one place I had my own key and just walked in.

Thanks for all the responses- very interesting to see how everyone’s family operates.
I was just thinking about this because I know I will be standing outside MIL’s door with 2 children and a dish of Thanksgiving food in my hands next week waiting for them to open up!

I just walk on in to my parents’ house, even if it’s locked, I have a key and usually they know when I am coming over.
We knock with DH’s parents but usually they are expecting us and often right at the door when we get there.

We have a key to his parents house and my parents house, so we always let ourselves in. My little sister is still living with my parents, so there’s not usually any chance of nakedness there. Father-In-Law likes to walk around naked though, we’re lucky if he even has underwear on. So Darling Husband always walks in first and announces “It’s both of us.” Then I wait on the front porch for a few minutes while Father-In-Law puts pants on. That’s if they’re not expecting us, or if they’re expecting us but there’s no set time. He usually tries to be dressed when he knows for sure we’re coming over 😛

Only on the off chance that it’s locked. I would usually just walk in and then yell “hello!” from the door at my house. Same as DH’s house.

I always ring the doorbell since that’s how I was raised to approach a home that wasn’t mine. It’s just something I’ve kept up out of habit.

I always ring the doorbell. It’s never occurred to me not to.

Now, I don’t because we moved in, but when we were still living in our apartment, I would always just walk right in. Then, again, I never officially moved out, lol. I just kind of stopped coming home and slowly started moving stuff out, little by little. Got the bed out three weeks before we turned around and moved in to help out.
