I call her by her first name. I wouldn’t feel comfortable calling her mom at all.

Well, I can’t really say what I call her when she’s not around…haha. But, I’ll always call her by her name. My real “mother” isn’t in my life any more, but I won’t call Future Mother-In-Law Mom simply because we just don’t have a great relationship.  I do call Future Father-In-Law, “dad” though.

I call them Mr. and Mrs. (first name).  Actually, I usually don’t call them anything to be honest, usually its just direct conversation. 

I won’t call them Mom/Dad, I’m in the South and to me that just seems so strange!! I know my FI’s brother had a girlfriend that called their mom ‘Mom’ but she kind of disliked it when the girl did it (but, then, she did dislike the girl in general and she wasn’t around long).  Maybe when I’m a little older I’ll drop the Mr. and Mrs. (I’m 23) but its hard to break those manners my mother beat into me!!

Mrs. *her last name*

Because I don’t like her (and that’s putting it lightly), for very good reason.

My parents both refer to their inlaws as Mom and Dad, but I could never see doing that with my Future In-Laws, though I do call his grandparents Grandma and Grandpa, per their request.    I use his mom’s, dad’s and stepdad’s first names.

My family has always believed that if you are an adult (18+) and another adult introduces themselves with their first name, then you should use their first name.  My parents’ best friend’s kids, who they’ve known since childhood (they are over 30 now), STILL refer to my parents as Mr. and Mrs. and it drives my parents nuts, they feel like they don’t feel comfortable or as close to them because of it.  It may be disrespectful to others, but to us it’s a way of recognizing that no one is above anyone, despite age, and we are all friends as well as family.  It would be so weird to me to call his mom Mrs. ________!  That would be like I was talking to a stranger or a teacher.  Also, how long do you keep that up?!  Do you call coworkers who are older than you Mr. or Mrs. _______?  Sorry, little rant, I just think it’s weird when people get stuck on titles.   I am from the south, so I hear this a lot haha…

I call future Mother-In-Law by her 1st name and same with future Father-In-Law. My Fiance calls mom, mom and dad, dad (unless he is upset, which is rare, then he will address his dad by his 1st name). Only heard him 1 time in 7 years call him by his 1st name, was kind of funny to me.
