Meeting your partner’s parents can be nerve wracking…meet in laws

A man explained online that his girlfriend was hesitant to meet his family. After weeks of his family asking to meet her, he came up with a plan. He brought his whole family to the restaurant where she works. “When she saw us I could tell that she was taken aback, but she did her job well and even took the time to talk to us all…I thought the whole thing was fine.” But his girlfriend was furious that he blindsided her as she wanted to meet his family on her terms. So Bec and Jeziel wanted to know, how did you meet your in-laws?

Simon met his in-laws two weeks before he married his wife. They got married in Australia and Mexico. “That was when she met my parents. So it was 3 or 4 weeks before we got married in Australia. By the time we got to Mexico to have the second wedding it was too late.”

Rachel’s husband is from Zambia. But before they got married, her mother-in-law was unsure about her son marrying someone from another culture. So Rachel and her mum, flew to Zambia to meet her mother-in-law. But they didn’t know her husband had a uni exam. “So my mum and I met my in-laws without my husband there. In a country I’ve never been to before!”
