Not Unhappy: Meet the Parents went well

1 May

It wasn’t “Meet the Fockers!!”

So fiance’s parents and my parents met today. It went well!

We’ve been together for almost five years and they’ve only ever met for 10 seconds to say hello but they’ve never just hung out.

But we had a nice quiche lunch where we chatted about our wedding, the royal wedding, the weather, speeding, pensions, etc etc.  Things that strangers tend to talk about. But by the end we were all laughing. It was quite nice and hopefully we’ll do it again soon.

It was pretty mild mannered. There were no Ben Stiller-type shenanigans.

I was kind of worried because our parents are all the same age, but that’s pretty much all they have in common. Examples

My parents: touchy feely loud and chatty Italian immigrants

His parents:  quiet and reserved Canadian-born people

My parents: small house in the city                                            

His parents:  big house in the suburbs

My parents: store clerk and construction worker

His parents: accountants

But it all worked out! Another thing to check off the list!
