  • I was very nervous. I was going to go to their house for dinner on a week night. The Sunday before I was sitting on the lawn of DH's apartment about 10 am. Up walk the future in laws. I couldn't have looked less put together (I had just brought DH and a his buddy some breakfast as they had gone fishing and beer drinking the day before.) Ice broken. They came to my house for dinner that night, we cooked the fish and nearly 18 years later I'm just another daughter in their family.

  • Yes, and it's perfectly normal. Just try to be yourself. Be polite, ask them some questions like how did they meet, how old were they when they got married, ask about their jobs, compliment their house. People never tire of talking about themselves, and if you can get the questions going, they won't have as much time to ask you things. Befor you go, think of some things they might ask you, and have some answers ready. Dress simply and conservatively. If you're going to their house, take them a small gift, like some homebaked cookies.

  • Absolutely terrified, and we were already engaged, so there was a little extra pressure.

  • I didn't know I as meeting them when I did and I wish I had warning. That day I was wearing a mini skirt and a very revealing top. I went through a phase where I finally realized I had a great looking body at the time and I wore stuff to show it off. SO yeah... After that day my MIL has hated me and in her mind I was a slut even though I have never slept around. Even till this day she dislikes me and has the same opinion on me. She refuses to get to know the real me.
