They haven’t met, so I don’t know. But I don’t think there will be a problem. My mom and FI’s parents are all pretty friendly and easy going.

they havent met either, and plus my FI’s parents are divorced and with married again. so my parents have to meet to set of parents instead of one. ive told them all that i want them all to met before the wedding but for some reason none of them are really excited about it

I am in the same shoes as you are. My mom is overbearing and is not that fond of my FH. My FH’s mom knows all the background. But they have met a few times, and although they would not be GOOD friends, they can all get along for the few hours that we are all together. And truthfully I dont care after that as long as they put on their smily faces during the time at hand.

I have to honestly say they all tolerate each other. I dont know if any of them actually “like” eachother. We have a very strange family dynamic going on. My FH is from NY and moved here a little over 6 years ago and was adopted into a family. When we got together and got Pregnant his real dad decided to move to Cincy to be closer to his grandson.

FH dad thinks everything is a compitition and annoys pretty much everyone at some point.

FH adopted parents are very laid back and fun to be around but have a lot of family drama inside there biological family. But otherwise are supper funt o be around.

My mom is a alcoholic who likes to get under everyones skin. Mine the most. FH adopted families last name is Bittner and for a while my mom called them the “Bitchners” for whatever reason.

My dad is very relaxed tho and kinda gets a long with everyone, He is always the nice guy who dosent cause trouble.(dont ask me how him and my mom are still married)

They have only met a handful of times, but they get on well enough. My parents are very different to his though, much more liberal and very outgoing, I can’t see them ever becoming friends.

Yea, they get along for the most part though they’re very different. DH’s family are right wing, NRA supporting, country type of people while my mom is the complete opposite. They can tolerate each other but I certainly wouldn’t go as far as to say that they’re friends.

My dad and FH’s dad get along really well! They golf together and really like to talk and BS and drink beers when we has get togethers, it’s cute. FH’s mom lives in another state, but she loves my dad and my stepmom – they’ve only met once. My mom is crazy so no one likes her lol but everyone is civil. 

I think that it’s important that everyone meet, but they don’t need to be BFFs.

@SouthernGirl:  My situation is very close to yours, even in concern to your parents’/his parents’ attitudes and relationship with you and your FH. It’s not the greatest situation, but they very rarely have to interact, and they manage to be civil when they do. Darling Husband and I have been together 5 years, and I can only remember them having to get together one time (when we got married).

I’m from BC and my Fiance is from CA, so ours have never met either – our Mom’s have talked on the phone a few times and get along great. His parents are coming up next week to meet my parents and spend about 4 days together – I’m SOOOO excited! I think they’ll get along great, they are incredibly similar. My parents are also going to CA this summer to spend time with his parents at their family cabin.
