A few minutes before her father tells her you're not good enough for her.
 
2013-08-03 10:07:21 PM  
Alternately, I understand you often get to hear from her parents at the sentencing.

In the middle of coitus, preferably.
 
2013-08-03 10:07:35 PM  
I usually end up dating guys who live at home, so the first time they take me home.
 
2013-08-03 10:07:51 PM  
Wife met my family after about 6 months. My mother commented "She's really nice. She'd make a nice addition to the family, if you know what I mean" Yeah, mom, I  think I can piece that one together.
I never met my in-laws. Her father died before we met. Her mother was not a nice person, so she didn't want me to meet her.
 
2013-08-03 10:08:07 PM  
That was a fast green.
 
2013-08-03 10:08:26 PM  
Never, because even mentioning them to Mom and Dad is a jinx.
 
2013-08-03 10:08:53 PM  
Never again.

My family? Hopefully in the first few months. Hers? Preferably never. Ugh, who wants to go through meeting the family?

Not MY family, though. My family is AWESOME.
 
2013-08-03 10:09:46 PM  
Do I, personally? Like, a while. My family is loud and heavily medicated.
 
2013-08-03 10:10:09 PM  
They usually meet my parents awkwardly at the breakfast table the next morning.
 
2013-08-03 10:10:57 PM  
My family lives 3,000 miles away, so I'm only going to take home a fella who is invested enough in the relationship to spend $500 on a plane ticket. About six months, generally.

My most significant relationship was with a chick who actually kept me a secret from her parents, because her mom was dead set on matching her up with some guy she grew up with. I met her mom by accident one day anyways at the laundromat, and it wasn't a total nightmare. She just started biatching to me about her slut of a daughter, and I kept nodding sympathetically and pretending not to recognize her. Never told my gf.
 
2013-08-03 10:11:05 PM  
I mean, so am I but a whole gang of us is usually overwhelming.

I met my in-laws at dinner a couple weeks after I met my wife. Not long after, I went over to pick her up and her dad was sitting at the dining room table, cleaning one of his many guns. It freaked me out pretty bad once he said "have a seat, son."

Funny thing is, years later, he didn't even realize he was intimidating me. He was just cleaning his gun and asked me to sit down.

I met my wife's parents like 3 weeks in.

/I went to her senior prom.
 
2013-08-03 10:15:21 PM  
When I was younger, like..16-24 I pretty much met the parents within the first few weeks. Nowadays I've been seeing and living with a girl for two years and haven't met either parent once. My hairy, pale Canadian ass isn't flying to the southern states to die in the heat. If they really want to meet me they can fly up to Edmonton which no one ever does!

Bad grammar on my part. I meant Skippy the hometown quarterback that my (now ex) gf had grown up with. She had dumped him in high school, but mommy dearest never got over it.

Its easy when you already live at your parents house.  I feel it gets it out of the way faster and they can taste the food I want them to make me. Mother likes to approve them before I go further.

2013-08-03 10:23:49 PM  
When I was younger, it was usually after we had gone on a few dates over several weeks.  Now, almost never.  I'd have to be seeing someone for several months before they even met any of my kids, much less parents.
 
2013-08-03 10:24:54 PM  
There was a cursory hello and good night as we rolled into town quite late but since the GF insisted on being made love to quite vigorously in her daddy's guest room breakfast the next morning got off to a bit of an awkward start. It all worked out well, until she got bored for the kind of action a healthy marriage can never provide.

/any of you ladies feeling a bit peckish?

I won't claim to be 'average' or anything, but my mom has met 2 of the guys I was dating. I don't know, it's probably related but they were the two I had sex with.

My mom is too good for most bums. And me, I guess. But I don't think anyone is better than anyone else, so it's more that it didn't seem significant enought to say HELLO MOTHER HERE IS SOMEONE WHO IS CHANGING MY LIFE.

Oh my god. I'm rambling.

I totally identify with this. I'm nervous meeting parents because I'm a little unconventional, but I love bringing boyfriends over to meet my parents. My folks rule, especially my stepdad. He'll cook you amazing food, talk music and books with you, and make you laugh your beverage out your nose.

Actually, I almost always have dated people whose parents were dead, so other than some adoptive parents when I was kid I never had to worry much about it.  Which, now that I think about it, seems pretty farking weird since I have pretty much never been without steady girlfriend in 20 years.  I guess I am attracted to some kind of orphan pheromone.

You guys don't take your parents with you on dates!? Who chaperons you?? Granted, I'm only 35. Maybe some of you are old enough to be out on your own. I always kind of thought that I would be married by now. I'm not sure what the problem is. My mom says I'm the most handsome guy in town, but I never even get to a second date!

One advantage of being "mature" - both my wife and I don't have living parents. Taking a shovel to the graveyard would be a little too awkward, so let's just go with never.

Met my wife's parents the first night I actually went to her house.  It was a Christmas party. I met her mom first because her stepdad was drunk and passed out in the chair.  Her mom wasn't far behind, falling and hitting her head on the bathtub an hour or so after we met.  Merry Christmas from the family!

That has been my experience too. I advise never meeting the in-laws if you can help it before the marriage. Either one of three things will happen. You won't like them in which case you'll have qualms, they won't like you in which case she'll have qualms, or you'll adore each other in which case a miracle has happened. Miracles do happen but it's better not gamble a relationship on it.

Being at that age when I'm still a lecherous fool and yet have a wide enough social circle of fetfreaks and club friends it was bound to happen... and it did.

I was sitting on the back patio of the club I go to quite often, enjoying the company of this lovely and quite curvy little treat when one of my friends I had not seen in a while came over, bought me a shot, waited for me to finish it, and says "I see you have met my daughter. Her mom is out of town for the summer so she is staying with us, do me a favor and don't take pictures that might get back to her mom"

He was surprisingly cool with it (he knows I am "safe") but man.. that was awkward as HELL for a few minutes.

I had no idea he had a daughter that was over 21!

/Kept a respectful distance, and a protective eye on her, for the rest of the summer.

I met my ex-girlfriends parents about six to eight weeks after I met her.  We met on November 5, 2005.  Met her stepfather (her father died years ago) on Christmas Day, as they were inviting me over to their house for brunch and gifts, etc.  I didn't like to celebrate holidays (still don't, really), so I didn't go the first year.  Within the first few months, I met her family.

We broke up on February 5th, 2013.  She moved out in May.  The gild is off the lily of the single life now, but there's no fixing things at this point.

Funny thing is, years later, he didn't even realize he was intimidating me. He was just cleaning his gun and asked me to sit down.

It's risky, several times in my life girls introduced me to their parents, and the parents loved me. This, of course, killed the romance, few women want to date a guy who doesn't piss off daddy a little bit.

I met my wife, her siblings and their mom the first time I was in their country for work (about a year after I first ran into her online).  She met my folks five years later on arrival in the US after her visa came through, but had met my daughter and one of my cousins a few months before that in her homeland.

2013-08-04 05:32:55 AM  
So CSB time. I met my wife while working abroad. We did the long distance thing and I moved to her hometown for a few months after my first assignment in the country was over. I'd met her family quite a bit, dinner etc etc. My sister came over to visit for a couple of weeks and we did a trip together as well. 

Fast forward to the wedding plans. My mom and sis are flying over. My fiancee/wife heads to her hometown early to prep. I pick up my family, show them around and finish parts of the wedding plan. We're only in her town a bit before the wedding. Can't see the bride before the wedding.. tons of stuff to do. Her family is busy with prep. My job involves feeding two veggies in a meat loving country, finishing last minute plans and There's an accident and the car with my wife arrives about 2 hours late. 

The first time my wife and my mother actually physically met was as she was walking down the aisle in her gown. She paused and they had a brief moment there where they said hello. 

After the wedding we did a family hike / camping before going on the actual just us honeymoon.

Well, the real answer is:  when your relationship is ready for it in your own estimation.  By the time you meet them, you should already know a bit about them.  Don't jump into this in a fledgling or distressed relationship or that will be the topic of conversation.  Don't over-shadow someone else's big day either (birthday, wedding, etc.) by making it about meeting you.

I don't know how I stumbled into it, but I've had good luck with arriving early for a family event hosted at the parents' house and offering to assist in the preparations.  I guess the key is that the only people who want you to seem cool are your significant other and any young kids, everyone else wants to make sure that their family member isn't heading for disaster.  It's entirely reasonable that you'll be asked about your past work and career aspirations, so don't blow this off as "not their business."  An answer like "oh, I get by" will only make them nervous about your ability to provide for more than just yourself.

Oh, she didn't actually "meet" my parents until a few months ago, we were already engaged.  They had met in passing, being a small town and all, when she was a kid, but she didn't really remember them, just other strangers her parents knew in the grocery store.  My parents left in 99 so I had an unfair upper hand.

Her parents liked me way back, well before I graduated.  It was unfair, she was nervous and I was in good before we started dating.  Dating was not my intent when we first started talking BTW.  I was nervous about it when it started going that direction because I was friends with the family and I didn't want to upset that.

Met my husband's mom on our FIRST DATE (and no, we weren't in high school at the time - we were in our early 20's).

He didn't have his own car at the time, so he had borrowed his mom's car to take me out on the understanding that he would pick her up after her shift at work ended (at midnight).

We were just going out for dinner so he assumed the date would be over by then, but we went back to his place after, it was going so well and we were having such a good time, he levelled with me at about 11:30 and said we could either cut the date short so he could go pick up his mom or I could come with him and we'd continue our evening after giving her her car back.

It says something about how much I enjoyed his company that I actually chose option B and we both went to pick up his mother then carried on with our evening!

Met his dad about a month in, and hubby met my parents around then too. We progressed pretty fast though (moved in together after just 3 months).

And that was over 10 years ago and we're still together (and no, despite this story, he is not a momma's boy - he just really needed a vehicle that night!).

My last BF didn't meet my parents thankfully because mine would have wondered what I was doing with him in the first place. I met his mom around month 4-5 and went on a camping trip with his extended family around month 9. The relationship ended around month 10 or so when he informed me that my going to school was irresponsible since I had to take out loans and he wanted a highly educated babymaker (his words not mine) to stay home while he worked in IT.

I do not understand men who specifically want a girl engineer to give up her career for him. Is it the "Im so awesome she gave everything up" mentality?

My parents are deceased.  However, my husband met my youngest child and my younger brother the day we met - he asked my daughter to join us for dinner and while we were having dessert and coffee at the apartment, my brother came home (we shared an apartment at the time).

I met his parents after we'd been together 3.5 years and living together for 2.5 years.  It happened that we had to go up to his parents' area for work and decided to visit.  His dad spent most of the evening either griping about how his son never visits (well, we do live half a continent away), griping at his wife or watching Fox News at a volume that could be heard in the next county.  His mother prepared diner for us, cooking my husband's favorite meal.  She also pointed out that his room was ready for him and she'd be glad to make me up a place to sleep in the basement, then was wholly disappointed to be informed we had a hotel room back in town (needed to remote back to a PC at the office and run reports).  The entire time we were there, she kept asking him when he was going to settle down, get married and give her grandchildren.

We finally married after eight years together.  When we told his parents, his mom responded "But, what about grandchildren?"

Agreed. My MIL is 82. My wife is 52. Both of the look at least 20 years younger than their age. No BS.

My girl took awhile to introduce me... I would have forced the issue sooner but every time i would pick her up from her parents farm their pitbull cross and their borber collie would sit at the door of my truck snarling like demons... So i never got out... Not so much that i was afraid of the dogs but that i didnt want to introduce myself as "hi im mike -- im not just your daughters 'friend' and i kicked your dog in the face after it bit me" -- they were nice dogs they just hated everyone untill you spent a few days around them. She didnt tell her parents we were going out for a good while. She was kind of hoping one of her brothers would bring a girl home first -- 3 older brothers all over 20 and nobody had broken that ice? I was the first... I didnt tell my family either because then they would have been constantly asking me how things are going. My mom acts like some sort of weird jewish matriarchal stereotype sometimes... (all the time) -- the first meeting her parents went pretty well. They are both dutch immigrants and they talk with their outside voices ALL THE TIME. And her dad and i just chatted about farming for an hour or two and her mom kept apologizing about how messy the house was and her brothers sort of milled about arguing loudly about geek stuff.

I was 19 when my mom tried giving me 'the talk' -- it amounted to her saying 'the pill doesnt work all the time and i had a miscarriage just after meeting your father..." (my wife got the talk to and it amounted to her dad saying 'condoms dont work... just look -- i have 6 kids..') Omfgod that was retarded. If you havent giving your kid the talk by the time they turn into legal adults just... Just dont do it at all. Just dont. You missed your shot and now your just launching bullets into a crowd of innocents. Dont.

Sir Cumference the Flatulent: I met my wife's parents when we came to Germany after the wedding. I didn't speak German, and they didn't speak English. My parents were already dead by the time my wife and I met. Bullet dodged.


Did you marry an East German? I as because every West German born after WW II was taught English in school.

Quackadam:  Every time I met the parents, if her Mother liked me, it was the death nail of the relationship. So now I try not to.


"Death nail"? Now there's an eggcorn if ever I saw one.

Never happened, and I've been married for ten years. The parents of all the people I've dated seriously (all three of them) have either been dead, estranged, or several states away.

My parents have only met my husband; obviously, since my elderly mother lives with us. She hates him and he's stressed out by her. Fun!

I met my bf's mom and stepdad at about the one month mark. We all lived in cities within about two hours away from each other, so they came up on a weekend I happened to be there, so it just sort of happened. We met each other's dads six or so months later (mine lives two hours away, his 30min). He didn't meet my mom until it had been about a year. I wish we could have stretched that out longer, as she behaved terribly and unleashed some serious crazy in front of him (the crazy was directed to me). I was mortified. He stayed out of it and shrugged it off. Worst Thanksgiving in recent memory.

Now he and I live together in the city where he grew up and where his mom and stepdad live. They're pretty normal, not intrusive and invite us to dinner every Sunday. I guess things were quite farked up once upon a time, but they're great now. I hit the jackpot in terms of seeing what a normal family is like.

I met her mother a couple of minutes before I met her.

I was driving along to pick up my dad, who'd dropped a car off where my mom worked so she could drive home. There's this kid riding his bike and looking back at his friends hanging out at the gas station. I realize he ain't stoppin' at that stop sign and jam on the brakes but it's damp from a rain and I don't quite get stopped. He lands on my hood, rolls off and grabs his bike, which is now unridable and runs off with it. I get his name out of him and that he's ok before he gets away completely and continue on to pick up dad.

Dad says we have to report this to the police even though everything seemed ok. So we go there on the way home and tell them the story and when I get to his name they say "We know who that is." Also that I'm cool so don't worry about it.

Using the info from the police, I call his home and arrange to meet his mother a couple of days later. While I'm talking to her, her daughter walks into the room. Our eyes meet. A ray of that newfangled laser light passes between our eyes (hey, it was the mid 60s and yes I'm old). We celebrated out 45th anniversary earlier this summer.

Knell. It's called a death knell. It literally means ringing churchbells to announce a death.

That would be a death nail.


thank you.  That was driving me crazy.  It was the bastard child of two phrases almost worthy of mention in Boondock Saints.  Nail in the coffin and death knell.

depends on the religion and timing.  I met the jewish gf's parents when she had to make a stop at her parents' place.  Father liked me.  Mother and daughter were in the kitchen for 20 minutes.  Dumped by phone 3 days later.  We did have mad monkey farking sex for 3 days before she ended it.  Seems she was trying to save up the good times while she surfed the internet again for a mate.  Her dating ad changed slightly, now with the added "Jewish" in front of "man".  If I hadn't met the parents so early, she may have been able to talk her mother out of demanding she date a nice jewish boy, not a dirty gentile(me)

The mexican catholic raised black ex-gf(father died of something, his marine buddy took in his kids): have yet to meet her adoptive father, but the shiat he pulled on his adoptive daughter makes me want to put a bullet in his brain.  Mental, physical and sexual abuse from the moment she went to live with him.  Kicking her out of the house at 16 after pulling her out of school after 6th grade and pimping her out.  You don't think people like that walk free in this world, but this POS walks free today.  Should I ever meet this man, I can't be held responsible for what I at least try to do to him.  She and I broke up due to ... I am not a therapist, and I can't fix what was done to her or the level of need she has.  I hope she gets the help she needs one day, but it can't come from a layman like me.  Catholics like that give the rest of us a bad name.

orphaned Methodist black gf:  Her mom is still alive, but she is a basket case, and is in an institution.  Her dad up and left his first family one day and moved to TX, met her mom, and had 2 kids.  He then up and left again to start a new family somewhere else.  She has half-siblings all over the country thanks to this guy being a royal douche.  Separation anxiety up the wazoo.  I like clingy women, but the added issues she had about her father abusing her physically just made the relationship whither.

Irish Catholic(same as me) girl, Becca[not her name]: met her dad(and future mother-in-law #6) after a month.  Not all executives jump from position to position in failing companies, keeping alive while the workers starve, but this assh*le does just that.  We went to her father's place because she still lived with him at 25 with her son from a previous relationship.  He wasn't supposed to be there, but his date wanted to see the hunting lodge.  That was an awkward dinner.  Becca cooked, and I'm looking at this 18-19 year old girl who is drunk as a skunk and making advances on a 40-something while his grandson was in his booster seat at the same table.  He was just passing well liquored up, and skipped dessert in favor of his own treat.  Becca and I made a lot more noise that night than the two drunks(bed number 2 that we broke), and I never saw him again.  She is one of the ones that got away.  I'd be married with a step-son and a horde of little ones of my own if I'd played my cards right.

uh, my father is short and chubby, and has most of his hair, even if it is going gray.  I'm well over 6 feet tall and skinny.  Your post does hold true about my brothers, though.  Short and holding off the chubbiness by running and biking and triathalons.

Notabunny: italie: Before you meet each other?

Both my wife and I knew our respective in-laws before we met each other. Very weird scenario, but nice to have that off the checklist early...

I had kinda the opposite happen. A college girlfriend I was getting serious about dumped me, but her parents and I remained friends for years after.


Quite a few of my ex-girlfriends still visit my folks regularly. Sometimes I wonder who they were actually dating...

Bob Falfa: Wife met my family after about 6 months. My mother commented "She's really nice. She'd make a nice addition to the family, if you know what I mean" Yeah, mom, I  think I can piece that one together.
I never met my in-laws. Her father died before we met. Her mother was not a nice person, so she didn't want me to meet her.


Let me guess...you're not the same color/religion/ethnicity?

My relationship right now is classified as "not-girlfriends" by the chick I'm seeing. She's straight and not down with the idea of being official with a woman, but she loves the sex and doing things together like we're dating so...yeah, whatever, anyway. For some reason, after a month of this relationship, she wanted me to go with her to her parents house for some little family reunion. Free food, cool. The only rule was no acting touchy with each other. We walked in the house and the first thing I see is a huge couchspread that proclaimed "Here Jesus is King". And then a whole bunch of 'muricah! stuff. I don't go around wearing a shirt saying how much I love pussy, but I guess my short mohawk gave it away cause her dad said not a word to me and glared me down from across the room the whole time. It was definitely one of the more awkward few hours ive sat through.

So my answer to that question is, if they love Jesus and hate queers, nevvvvverrrrrrr.

Here's my meet the mom story-the old man met my mom after I'd known him about 2 months and we weren't even dating at the time, just friends and lived in the same apartment building.  We were bumming around downtown one day and I said, "Hey, that's my mom's office.  Wanna meet her?" He said sure, so we went up to visit my mom.  The old man is pretty well covered in tattoos and my mom always hated that, in addition to having his tongue pierced, and back then, he looked a little bit intimidating, but was sweet as pie and completely charmed my mother.  Her words to me after meeting him once, "Marry that guy." We lost touch for years and years and through the magic that is FaceBook, are now happily living in sin.  Too bad my mom passed away several years ago, she'd be happy to see us together.  I met my ex-husband's parents about 3 weeks after we started dating, but he was living at home at the time.  I don't really think there's any magic number.

I used to be FWB with a girl from around these here parts (site) and she took me to meet her parents after, like, 3 or so times going out (met her the for first time prolly 2 months prior and didn't start going out till something like 3 weeks later).  Problem was I kinda liked her (hence why I agreed to go) and she had said the same prior, so I thought I things were going well.  Turns out she didn't like me like that after all (oops?) and subsequently ditched me entirely a week or so after agreeing to remain just friends.  So that was nice....

When I was 17 I went home with a girl and when we were finished I passed out in her bed. Her stepfather came home from his second shift job, and apparently I was snoring pretty loud. He whipped the sheets off the bed and there I was completely naked being yelled at by an enormous black guy. Scared the living shiat out of me. Not a good way to meet someone's parents.

I first met my mother-in-law about three years after the marriage, and the father-in-law two years after that.

For those of you not yet married, here's a word of advice.  Don't.

/then you don't need to meet the in-laws.
