If you have experienced two or more of the date ideas listed above and are still wondering if now, this Mother’s Day, is the time for the meet the parents date, do a quick heart and relationship check using the acrostic below:
Note Your Own Heart: Are you sensing this person has potential as a marriage partner? You don’t have to decide that now—invite your family into the process and be open to their feedback.
Open Up the Conversation: Talk to your partner. Would he or she like to meet your family? Have they already expressed interest in meeting your parents, siblings and seeing the home?
Welcome Natural Opportunities: According to ChristianMingle’s report, 30 percent of people will only introduce someone they’re dating to their family once it’s a really serious relationship. Twenty-one percent wait until after the fourth or fifth date to start the introductions to family. We recommend not waiting! Introduce your love interest to family and friends earlier in the relationship before things get serious.
