    My parents live my Mr.  Shoot, he’s super handy around the house so he’s done so much for my mom and my grandma, so I swear they may love him more than me!

    My parents love my hubby. He fixes their computer and loads songs on their Ipods for them. Hehe. So they call him more often than they call me.

    My parents adore my husband.  I know this to be true because one day at dinner my mom offered my husband a bite of her dinner, from her plate.  She never lets anyone touch her plate (germs!).  I knew then that she truely had accepted him into the family.  We all had a laugh about that later that night, and she admitted that no one but a member of the family would be allowed eat from her plate.

    When we were home for Thanksgiving my dad pulled me aside before we left and said "I really like your guy" with a huge smile on his face.  It meant a lot to me.

    We’ve been together for 5 years. My mom had a  problem with him in the beginning just because he was unlike my past boyfriends and she wasn’t a fan of his blue collar job. After about 3 years she has totally turned around. She always wants him to come and vist and she considers him to be her son. I think the turning point was when she realized how much he loved me and cared about me and my son. How can you say no to that?

    Me and my future spuse live with my mom. She loves him. They have similar taste in movies and will watch them together on a night when I have plans. Thats typically how they bond because I do not have the same taste as them in movies.

     My dad loves him as well. They do not know each other as well, but my dad was really happy when he asked to marry me.

    I think his parents love me too. I lived at their summer home with them for two sumemrs during college. We got know each other pretty well. I love hanging out with them. His father and I both love scrabble, so thats how we bond.

    I think my mom wishes she was married to Mr. Peng.  It’s kinda gross. I love that she loves him but um.  Yeah.

    It has been a long road for me and my FH. He and I have been friends since we were 11 (fifteen years ago) so my parents have seen a lot of the…uh…growing up blunders shall we say. But my parents LOVE him. Seriously LOVE him. We aren’t married yet, but my Mom loves introducing him as her "future son-in-law" and talks about how excited she is to be getting a son (she has 4 daughters).

    My parents love my husband. They both enjoy spending time with him and know hoe happy he makes me. My parents live no where near us so we do not seem them very often.

    My parents definitely like my husband, but I get the impression that it’s more of a "we like him because he treats you well and you love him" kind of thing. I dated my ex-bf for five years and my parents really bonded with him. Plus, Darling Husband and I have only known each other for 2.5 years. So I think their feelings are a consequence of getting the energy to attach themselves to another man, plus not having as much time to get to know him. They’ll love him someday, though 🙂

    I don’t think.  I know.  In fact, sometimes I think they might like him more than me, haha!

    My parents really really really like my guy.  Like peachypear, I think a lot of it is that he’s terrific for me and so considerate, but he and my dad are also both architects so they bond over that.  My mom thinks he’s great too. 

    It took them a while to get less formal, since we live farther from them and I usually go drop by my parents’ place on the way home from work (alone).  Once we went out with them a few times, and they met his parents, it got a lot more family-like.  FI’s parents like me quite a bit too; I think both sets of parents just think that we’re great for each other and are happy for us.

    My Mom came over to hang out and I found her delicately folding his boxers.  She was so tender and loving it was wierd for me but she loves him and thinks of him as another son.
