Ours met when we got engaged, they hadn’t met before that because DHs parents live 3000kms away! We organised a family lunch when we got engaged.

Our parents met within the first year of us dating, can’t remember exactly when BUT they met without us there!! We live in NY and his parents in FL. My parents went down on vacation and that’s when they all met up… I was pretty nervous but it all went well.

Our parents live maybe 10 min apart and met for the first time soon after we were engaged. My husband and I have since moved away but the four of them get together quite regularly without us – very endearing! You’re never too old to make new friends, I suppose.

My parents live in the US and my FI’s parents live in NZ. We live in Australia, and my parents wanted to come spend xmas with us last year. We already had plans to go to NZ to spend xmas with FI’s family when they floated this idea, but when FIL’s found out they invited my parents to xmas as well. So we all spent xmas together last year. Fiance proposed on xmas eve, so we were not officially engaged when these plans were made, but everyone knew that was something that would happen soon. It was really special to have everyone together for our engagement – especially because we would all usually be so far apart!

We are from different countries and have been together 3+ years. Our parents met after 1.5 years, and will meet for a second time this winter.

My boyfriend and I are at 9 months, and our parents have not met yet, but we are trying to figure something out. He had suggested the renaissance festival for my birthday, and everybody seemed on board,  until 2 days ago when he and his dad and step mom realized it’s his parents anniversary. So we shall see. They live about 15 minutes away from each other.

We had a dinner with both sets at the flat my fiance and I were sharing. I moved to the UK to live with him after we’d been long distance a year and my parents had flown in for a visit.

Two years in, the day before we moved to another state. My parents helped us move some stuff to his parents (as our interstate removalists were picking everything up from there) so they met then.

My parents met his dad and stepmother after we’d been together 2 years and were engaged. His parents were staying with us (they live interstate) and we invited my parents over for drinks.

We eloped, so there was never a ‘wedding meeting’. My parents still haven’t met his mother, who also lives in a different state, but there’s no real rush to organise that.

danakxox :  We met each other’s parents separately early on, but the first time our families met was when we moved into our house. We had been engaged for 3 months and everyone came to help us on move-in day. It was as fun as moving could be! lol They probably would have met sooner had his parents lived closer to all of us.
