    my wife and I were talking today and I was saying that if we get a house next year that we could have an immediate-family-only turkey day thing at our new house... with both of our parents there.

    This reminded us of the fact that after dating for 3+ years and being married for 2 years, our parents have never met each other. She doesn't think that that is "weird"... I don't mind it, but think it is kinda weird. Ok, CK5 is gonna be the jury on this one. Whats the score?

    if they haven't met for some reason... post up why not.

    i guess its odd a little...

    you just kind of see "traditional" families that get together for a wedding and holidays on tv, ya know? my wifes parents both passed away when she was young, and my dad left when i was 6 months old, but her grandparents have met my mom and immediate family...

    yeah, no heavy drama or early deaths here... just haven't got together. My parents live about a 1/4 mile from us and her parents are 30 miles away. We got married alone in Vegas... and holidays we always do seperate. I ain't complaining... but I do think its a little weird. If one family was all the way across the country or something, it'd be more 'normal' then. ;) :thumb:

    I've been with my ex-gf for 4 years on and off... we have 2 boys, 10 and 8 years old.... anyways, the relationship was already shot to sh*t so I never bothered to fix it, it's too racially complicated, we both was getting sh*t from friends and strangers about it. I was into that jungle fever hype back then and my parents were never cool with that. There's that whole racist reason why my parents haven't met her parents... I was young and didn't know that much about why it was soooo important to "stick with your own kind"... I understand now but too late... yeah that was weird but I just moved on and never looked back. I got kids to raise, hopefully they grow up in a less hateful environment than my parents did... I'm kinda still mentally angry about that...

    After 11 years, my folks and my wife's folks still have not met. Too much distance, and no real need.

    ya dude. I thought "no biggie" until you said they lived within 30 miles. that's a little odd.

    You just reminded me of that...



    On topic (sort of), my wife's dad and my family met just before our wedding. I don't know if her mom's ever met my family, but I know they've talked on the the phone. My psychotic MIL accused my mom of calling child protective services on her, even though my mom knew nothing about her... My mother in law was so clueless she didn't realize anyone would have called CPS.
    I kinda regret meeting her... :haha: :haha:

    But I don't think you're wierd for them not meeting. sounds like the circumstances didn't require it at first, and now it's a "get around to it" thing.
