WOMAN ASKS WHAT TO CALL HER FIANCE’S PARENTS – “UNCLE/AUNTIE” OR “MOM/DAD”

long story short i didn’t call my partner’s parents “auntie, uncle” six years ago and now i can’t get myself to cause it’ll be so weird to just start… and they seem to be expecting it (?)

i know this seems like a small problem to have but just thinking about it makes all my cells shrink into the darkest crevices of my body

i didn’t call them that because i was scared they’ll be offended, you know how some people get offended when you call them auntie/uncle and it has happened to me before at a workplace.

but now it has backfired and seems like i’m disrespectful when i say hello and bye without saying auntie and uncle.

anyways my partner and i are planning to get married and im dreading the day i need to call them “dad/mom” i think i’ll die of shame, i don’t even think i can look at them in the eyes anymore…

i just wish it was the norm here for everyone to just use names instead idk

HELP

Netizens’ comments

Wow don’t know how you manage to avoid addressing either of them for 6 years. True feat.

Just ask your partner to initiate a conversation

  • Partner: Mom, Dad, now that we are getting married, OP would like to know of how to address you. Is Mom/Dad ok or stick with uncle/auntie?
  • OP: acts like Uncle/Auntie was always the default

Don’t force it la
