I’m glad you were able to reflect and take a step back here. It really doesn’t matter what name we use. What’s more important is how we treat each other — all relationships. 🙂 

also, a spot of levity: am I REALLY the only person who read the ENTIRE OP thinking that your mom was asking your Fiance to call her mom — as in make a phone call to her mother (your grandmother). I was soooo confused. And now I’m sooo embarrassed <but laughing>. Time for bed!!

You should not try to make that decision for him, and he should respect your choice to call his parents whatever you choose. Hopefully your mother will not want him to do something that makes him uncomfortable, and will understand when you explain it to her. If she chooses to be offended, that’s unfortunate, but better than trying to force someone to do something they’re uncomfortable with.

Well I’m glad this worked out OP , but idk about your being able to see other’s POV’s  etc if you latest posts  are anything to go by.

I am beginning to  feel a bit worried about you , you seem to move from  one obsession to another , and always  focussing on trying to force other people to behave – or even feel -in ways you deem correct. It doesn’t seem to matter how often people point this out,   you still come back   , like a child to ” but I wanna/don’t wanna -its not fair-why can’t like me/be my friend”   and so forth.

I’m not one for therapy at every verse end , but ,……
