Kind of already screwed the pooch on telling them, three years is a long time, but who cares what his parents are going to say?  It’s not like they can ground him or take away his birthday!  Invite them to dinner and have your hubby raise a glass and toast his wife of three years, they should be thrilled and if they aren’t they’re cretins and you should stiff them with the bill!

Wait, you’ve even seen them in the past three years and haven’t told them? You should definitely tell them ASAP! You should probably expect them to be pretty angry at the both of you too.

I’m assuming he’s a grown man – he has no reason to be afraid of his parents.

Just tell them

@boogiebee:  YOU GOT MARRIED!! The two of you did not break into Fort Knox, start the zombie apocalypse or assasinate Abraham Lincoln…it’s happy news, and while you did cheat them out of seeing their son get married, I can imagine why if three years after the fact he still hasn’t told them…so don’t stress it!

I mean, ok, this could go a variety of ways.

1) They are angry they couldn’t be a part of a wedding celebration

2) They are glad you saved them money and time but they don’t like you and don’t approve of the match

3) They welcome you as a DIL.

Honestly, in the end, regardless how they react, you’re still married, presumably still in love, and it’s really none of their business anymore. If they want to be a part of their grandchildren’s lives then they will make their peace with it.

@boogiebee:  I think your husband should be doing this, if not you together.

@boogiebee:  They can’t doa  damn thing except be mad for a little while….tell them. Either him or you but somebody’s got to NOW. If you guys get pregnant they will be much happier about t knowing you’ve been married 3 years.
