Um....I met his mom pretty quickly...and his niece. He was living with his mom at the time (she was unemployed so he was taking care of her), and I went over to hang out with him. Long story short, walk of shame right into his niece (like 11 at the time). We have all gotten along since. Well...except for his sister in law, she doesn't like me...but that's alright, I wasn't put on this earth to please anyone.
I met his parents 3 days after we first hung out. Wasn't expecting it. His mom was nice but it was a bit awkward. And then his dad taught me how to shoot a gun. He met mine a month after we first started hanging out. He wanted to meet them before we were officially dating.
I met my FH's father years before we even started dating, before I even realized it was his dad. My FH and I went to high school together and I used to referee soccer games with his dad on the weekends. My FH and I were friends in high school, but hadn't talked since he went away to college. When he came back from college his dad was trying to set us up and eventually we started dating but we didn't tell his dad for a while, once we knew it was gonna work. I met his Mother (parents are divorced) about a week into dating. There was a tsunami warning and my house was near the beach, his mom's house was well out of the tsunami zone, so I spent the night at her place with my sister and one of his buddies. We didn't tell her we were dating at the time since it was brand-new. Just said we were friends from high school years back. He met my parents a few months in, we went over for dinner at their house and had a BBQ.
I knew his mom a long time before we started dating, because we were in band together and she’d go to games with us. I didn’t meet his dad for a few months after we started dating, which was probably a good thing because he was terrifying at first lol. FH met pretty much all of my extended family at our high school graduation.
His older sister was my babysitter years before him and I met so...then.
I met FH's parents a couple months in but it wasn't planned. I was on my way to his house for dinner on a weeknight and he called and says "um, my parents stopped by... Is that ok?". I met the rest of his family a couple months after that at FMIL's birthday party.
We were both living at home at the time so it was about 3 weeks into dating. He came to my house and I cooked dinner for him. I met his dad and step mom a few days later. I met his mom about 5 months in.
We had been seeing each other for about 8 mos..2 of which we were “official” & she requested to meet me..at a bible study she was hosting lol I come from a church upbringing but am not supef religious so I wasn’t too thrilled but I guess it worked out given the outcome lol
