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 call my inlaws by their first name. Mil would prefer me to call her mom but that is just too weird for me.

I call my MIL psycho c*nt but that's nice compared to what DH calls her.

His stepmom, though, we call her by her first name.

I call her by her first name at her request.
It's awkward for me because I always called her Mrs. **** but I'm basically used to calling her by her first name, I've been married to her son almost 4 years now.

My MIL lives with us - I refer to her as Granny or her name.  Seems odd to refer to someone who lives with you by a formal name, kwim?

Stupid bitch. When we talked to her, I avoided calling her anything, not sure why.

I would be comfortable calling mine Ma (what DH calls her) but I think my mother would get offended (that's just how she is) so I don't call her that. 


Quoting SoPoetic:

I call my mother inlaw MOMMY, MA, MOM, MOTHER, OLD LADY, AND KIMMIE (her name is kim) and usually when i call her Kimmie (being playful) she scolds me and makes me go back to calling her mom lol. 

My real mom and I practically hate eachother. My MIL is my bestfriend..and sometimes i swear she loves me more than her son lol jk
