Your MIL?



Do you call her by her name or do you call her mom?

Same for FIL?

I always try to say mom/dad but I was introduced to them by their first names and can't seem to transition :) but the hugs feel like family so...

I call my mum Mamai and my MIL mum.

My FIL is really the only dad I have ever had and I call him Dadai

I call my MIL Mom (per her request), though I hate doing that. I've never had to call my FIL anything. Not since he's been my FIL anyway. I think I've spoken to him 3 times since I met my husband 6 years ago. Before we were married, I called him Mr. [Insert last name].

I hardly talk to them, so I never call them anything. I just mention them as "your mom/dad" when I talk about them to my husband

She passed away when DH was 12 so we have his stepmom, and we call her by her first name.
