So. ... DH and I have been married for a little over 5 years. We have one daughter. He often calls my parents mum and dad but I always refer to his parents by their names. I just don't feel comfortable calling them mum and dad.
We have a perfectly fine relationship with each parent. His parents can be a little overbearing and intense but otherwise pretty good. My parents can be annoying too!
DH says I should call them mum and dad since he calls my parents mum and dad. But I never asked him to he just has. It's just more natural for him. DH says I'm being unreasonable and rude not to call his parents mum and dad. He is being silly now and saying he'll start calling my parents by their names instead of mum and dad if I won't call his mum and dad!
It just feels unnatural for me but he says I should do it for him and I say I can't. It doesn't feel right.
So. .. What do you call your in laws and why?
