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?

To her face, I use her first name.  Not to her face, I use other names.

I call my husband's parents Mom and Dad, and he does the same for me.  It's more out of respect for one another, not because we have some close relationship w/ our in-laws.
