What do you call your MIL?

Posted by   + Show Post

I call my MIL Mrs. Stephanie (her first name) and my FIL Mr. Michael.

My DH calls my parents Mrs. Lisa and Mr. Tommy.

I find it really strange when people call their MIL by just their first name. I was raised to call someone older than me Mr. or Mrs. until they tell me not to use Mr. or Mrs.

Are you the same way, or more casual with using just their first name or a nickname?

I try not to call her anything, but when I am forced to associate with her, I call her Kathie. That's her name.
My husband calls my parents by their names as well.

She's lucky I call her by her first name. There are so many other things I could be calling her.

 ah no... I call them by just there first name. Using mr or mrs in front of the first name seems silly. infront of a last name fine.

I called my MIL (Mother-in-love) "Mom" and my FIL was "Dad".  It can get very confusing when I am talking about them to someone that knows/knew my mom and dad.

I call my mother and father in law Mom and Dad. I'm as close to them as I am my own parents and they like me and my SIL calling them that. Before DH and I were married, I always called them by their first names.
