Our families live across the country from one another and haven’t met yet. Im thinking the first opportunity they’ll have to meet is at the wedding or the festivities leading up to it. Did/is anyone going through anything similar and if so how did/is it going for you? If you have a totally different experience please share as well.

Our parents live 4+ hours apart. The first time they met was at our housewarming, although it was brief. Then again at our wedding… lol. That’s about it. I would assume they will see each other again once we have kids. Worked out well though, they all got along.

After around 7 months of dating or so… which is a while considering the families lived a 5 minute drive away.

Me and Fiance were just chatting about this the other day! We think they won’t be meeting until the wedding, and that is ok by me! My mom and his mom are friends on FB and it causes enough drama. His mom is always slighted by something my mom has said. I’m not too jazzed for them to meet in person because I’m sure it’ll just be 10x worse.

Ours wont until the wedding…I am not happy about it but his family seems to have no interest in meeting mine. It kinda bums me out but whats a girl gonna do.

I think they met when my DH graduated college. He was just my Boyfriend or Best Friend then. I am not completely sure though.

we’ve been together 6.5 years, and our parents live about 15-20 mins away from each other and they still haven’t met! My mom has met my boyfriend’s sisters but that’s it. Neither family has shown an interest in meeting the other. Once we get engaged (which will be soon) we are going to set something up for them to meet.

They’ll meet on my wedding day and that will be the only time they’ll see each other.. except for our vow renewals and such.

My parents live several states away from us, and DH’s parents are ex-pats. They met the day before the wedding celebration at a dinner for both of our families. They got along really well.

- Wedding: September 2016 - Blue Hound Farm
this exactly, except it’s 5 years, and my mom now lives an hour and a half away, but that was a fairly recent move. Oh, and she briefly met my SOs dad as well.
It feels weird to me that they haven’t met since I know his family met his sisters now husband’s family long before they got engaged, but maybe it’s because we’re older? Idk

We live in Asia and his mom lives in France. She came to visit us in Taiwan 2 years ago, and we all had dinner together. We had been dating for a bit under two years at that point. I imagine they would have met a lot sooner if we lived in the same country!
