How do you know when your spouse’s parents have accepted you?

Cupid’s Advice:

Being in love can be a wonderful feeling, and it’s even better when you have your partner’s parents blessing.  Here are a few ways to tell when your spouse’s parents have accepted you:

1. They enjoy your company: When your lover’s parents are beating him or her to the punch when calling you to come over for game nights and family dinners, it sounds like you’re a shoe-in and their parents would love to see their son or daughter settle down with someone like you.

2. They brag about you: Meeting your spouse’s parents can be hard enough, but when you have to meet an entire family, that can definitely turn you into a nervous wreck.  But, when your spouse’s parents have bragged and told everyone what a wonderful person you are, that can easily remove about 10 pounds of nervous stress from your head.

3. You’re introduced as their future son or daughter-in-law: This makes it official.  You’re no longer the “girlfriend” or “boyfriend” in their eyes; you’re now the in-law.  Whether or not you and your love are simply dating or are soon-to-be newlyweds, they hear wedding bells for you two and are already planning your wedding.
