Of the three daughter in-laws I am the only one that does not call my in-laws mom and dad. I call them by their names. My mother in-law is very offended by this and rubs it in my face everytime we get together. The reason that I have chosen not to call them mom and dad is that I dislike both of them. My mother in-law is a pushy rude women who doesn't understand boundaries and my father in-law is a very strange pedophile who is into young men. He was released as bishop for this reason. I also have chosen to call them by their names to set clear boundaries. Neither of my parents ever called their in-laws mom and dad and my sisters also don't call/feel pressured to call their in laws mom and dad. I feel like it is an old tradition and a strange one that not many people do anymore. I guess if I married into a wonderful family I would be willing to call them mom and dad if they expected it but this has obviously not been the case.
