  • If you're engaged you're right she will need to get to know you eventually so it's good to start before the wedding so she's not as likely to resent you later. Remember though that no matter what she's going to love her mother and you need to create a good working relationship of civility and respect with the mother.
    How do you plan to get to know his daughter and how old is she? It may be fun to do some things with her dad but also do some things just you girls. If she's old enough, take her out for something like a mani and get pretty polish together or do your feet or just something only you girls can do. Create special things between you.
