Maybe they're just the type of people who come off as intimidating at first! There's always hope that they could turn out to be perfectly nice people.

You always should meet the parents first. If your spouse doesn't want you to meet their parents they are hiding something. (maybe just an embarrassingly horrible family) Personally, I wish I had never met my In-laws, but doing so gives me more insight into my husbands personality.


Maybe they met and married in another country. I don't think my dad's parents met my mom and her family until a few days before the wedding. Yes, that's before the wedding and not after, but it could also be that the husband and his family weren't particularly close, or that they aren't very nice to him, either, so he put off introducing his wife to them until it was unavoidable.

43 there are some things that just can't be fixed. I had to cut my parents and siblings out of my life because of how they treated me. There was no fixing it despite years of me trying. I'm better off now without them. I still talk to my extended family, and when I have to see my parents at a wedding I keep it polite, but otherwise there's not contact and it's better that way. I still have nightmares from what they did to me, and I hope my boyfriend never has to meet them.


There could be numerous reasons why she hasn't met them. I've been married for about a year and my wife hasn't met any of my family, but I'm also in the military getting deployed alot and it's not that easy to just take off and travel across the states whenever I want

53, I'm glad you'd husband is so understanding, and is on your side. I've seen similar situations pan out much worse... When a spouse lets their family ties divide them from their wedded lover, even when they don't agree with them. Such as by refusing to acknowledge terrible in laws.

39, you remind me of my uncles bitch girlfriend. She tried to get him to cut alll of his family out of his life because we were mad at her for cheating. And they ended up not inviting any of us to his wedding.

They're now divorced. Maybe in the future you be too. Since family's obviously not important to you.

94- there's a difference between your stories unless your family tormented her like the other commenter's family did. She SHOULD feel horrible about cheating and she wasn't justified in cutting you off since she was at fault. If you did nothing and your family tormented you then you should either go see a family counselor or simply cut them off. It would be the best for your own well being. My friends mom is a huge gambler and lost all the money for rent, bills, etc while gambling. My friend and her mentally ill brother had to basically scrape the piggy bank for food. They cut her off an moved as soon as they could. I see that as a good reason to cut a family member off. You don't have to hate the person but there's just times where you can't do anything to make it better anymore.

Can't be as bad as in nightmares. Idk about you guys, but most of my nightmares are either way too strange to seem feasible or unrealistic entirely. Like that time I fell up...

I can't believe it took you so long to meet the Outlaws!!!
If you'd have met them sooner you could have got out of the relationship quick smart!!

To me it sound like OP wants to get as far away from there as possible. Don't make friends. Just get out and avoid them at all costs. If they're that bad it isn't worth the time and effort.

That Is funny you say that because my grandparents (or my mom's in laws) live right next store to us and it drives us CRAZY! Everything they do for us they expect us to do back for them double and will talk behind our backs if we do it wrong or if we are too busy to do it. It then gets the entire family involved. It sucks.
