Is it strange that my 52 year old wife calls my parents mom and dad?

ALBANY, NY (NEWS10) – Today’s 98.3 TRY social dilemma comes from Jackson and it’s interesting… it’s about the in-laws. Here is his email:

Hi Jaime. I am a 46 year old male who just remarried my 52 year old wife. Age is not important in general but I think it is in this case. My parents are in their early 70’s and they are great. I have been married before and my new wife too. But as soon as we got married, she started calling my parents “mommy and daddy.” I find that rather odd. Now that her parents are both dead, but don’t you think it’s a little strange that someone in their 50s is starting to call my parents, who she’s only known for eight months, mom and dad. I would get it if we were in our twenties but we are not. I don’t know if I should tell him something or not. My parents aren’t happy about it, but they don’t hate it either. What would you do? Should I say something or just let it go? Thanks a lot


Well, personally, I come from an Italian family and we call everyone mum, dad, aunt, uncle, etc. So it doesn’t seem weird or strange to me. I find him affectionate. and soft. But again, that’s just my opinion.

What do you think? Let’s help Jackson and let me know on the TRY Facebook page.
