Just curious. My Fiance calls them every now and then but I kno parents would like it a littl more often. But he works a lot so hes more concerned about making time for me more then anyone else. But what about you? Does your Fiance call/meet up your family all the time? once a week? once a month? If you dont tell him, would he do it himself ?

ummm never. And I have never once spoke to his mother. I know that’s not exactly normal, but I feel him not really calling my parents is.

We’re not really phone people though… he sees them plenty (but always with me) and calls them if he needs to talk to them about something, but we don’t really do the call & chat thing.

@Caizn: Yeah I’m fairly certain I have only interacted with his mother without him like… twice? in 8 years. Not that I don’t like her, but it’s his mom not mine.

Um, never? He calls my Dad fairly regularly, but it is usually for a purpose since they have a little side business together. They do go out to lunch now and then, but again, it usually starts out as business related.
I only call his parents to wish them a happy birthday/anniversary/christmas, etc… never just to chat.
We visit my parents about once a week and his every couple of months (they live 4 hours away), but almost always together.
We all get along well and everything, I just don’t see the need?

When I remind him too! I speak to my parents fairly often, but my hubby is not great at talking to them and rarely phones them! They love it when he does, but his family phone once a week on a Sunday at 6pm, whether or not they wish to, and very rarely at any other time and he doesn’t get why I just phone my parents up!

Never! LOL, he only calls if he needs to ask them a question about something.

Not very much. Occassionally he talks to them after they’ve called me- they have a good relationship though. I never call his parents and never pick up the phone when they call.

Never, I think I’ve spoken to his parents once on the phone.

We usually only talk to each others family/parents if we need to ask a question or make plans. Never just to chat!

Rarely ever to just say hello. There is always a purpose for calling.

Never, but they’ve told him that they would like me to. I’m not a phone person though,I don’t chat with anyone on the phone.

Never. When my parents and I are on the phone they always do the “make sure to tell Fiance hi!” and he always does the “make sure to tell your parents hi!” but I can’t imagine them calling each other up to chat on their own. I’d be sorta freaked out if either side wanted that. And I would NEVER call his parents up to chat.
