Casting Instructions for ‘Make Your Future Parents in-law Like You’
Tell them that you deeply love their child, and you will never hurt them. Tell them you love them too, because they are your second set of parents. Be gentle. Be convincing.
If you are a woman, go shopping with his mother and buy her lunch. If you are a man, go to sports games with her father.
Dress nicely, not too sexy, not too fancy. Don’t say things like ‘Babe’ and ‘Sexy’, say things like ‘My dear’ and ‘Darling’. Do not swear around her parents. Call her mother ‘Madame’ or ‘Miss’ and her father ‘Sir’.
Give your fiance daily calls, and call her/his parents to give them the impression that you care about their well being. They will do exactly the same thing back. They should love you by the time the wedding comes around.
