    I call his parents by their first names and he does the same with my parents.  I’d feel like I was cheating on my parents if I called his parents “mom” or “dad.”  I don’t even really feel comfortable enough saying “I love you” to his parents, oddly enough.

    First names, on both ends.  It was awkward at first, because DH and I started dating as teens so the other’s mom and dad were always Mr or Mrs Lastname, but now I feel like we don’t need to be so formal.


    However, when my mom is being annoying, my DH has taken up my habit of calling her my grandmother’s first name, to point out that she’s acting like her mother, and it pisses her off.  Its funny to watch.

    He calls my mom by her first name & I call his mom by her first name. His mom kind of proposed this question after we got married, “I don’t know how to sign my name when I write you, do I put Libby or Mom.” I told her to put whatever she is comfortable with. They go back and forth signing their emails Mom/Dad or Libby/Tom. When writing them I usually just start by saying “Hey…”
