Happily married to a Polish girl; now I have to deal with her parents.

26 Aug 2007 /  #1
Hello to all the nice people on this forum. I posted a couple months back, but i have a question that maybe you can help me with. I have married my polish wife and she now lives with me here in Texas and i have never been so happy in my life.I've eaten food that i would never have tasted if it had not been for her,she is smart a good housekeeper as well as an good business woman. i cant complain one bit she have spoiled me rotten and i treat her like the queen that she is. The problem i have is that she is close to her parents which lives in Germany and i have not met them and they dint accept me. They told her that they never will, i dint speak polish but they speak polish and a little German. I want to talk to them so they can get to know me ,ive been studying the language . They wanted her to marry a polish man and even though were together they still try to fix her up with a polish man. My question is will they ever accept me or do most older polish parents stick to their beliefs, what can i do to let them get to know me better. iIwant them to know that i love their daughter and will always treat her with respect. Thank you for your replies

Since they love her daughter, they will eventually accept it. I would hire a translator and have them translate your personal thoughts in a letter into Polish and send it to them.

That's a tough one and seems like you didn't talk it through with your wife...

You can do something nice for them, send them pictures of you guys together so she can see how happy her daughter is, send them flowers through FTD or another world-wide company( Polish people love to receive flowers) and don't give up on trying to communicate with them and hope that in time they will not be so cold towards you. But don't count on it ever going away. After all their daughter is far away married to a none-Pole.

Texas, you did not marry them, you marry they daughter. If they - not knowing you - told her they will never accept you, I will say stay away from them. You do not need they approval. If your wife is half as smart as you say she is, she will realize that her parents are manipulative and controlling. Is time for her to grow up and stand by her man.

Do not let your emotions to be controlled by couple of hard-headed and - sorry to say - ridiculous people.
PS. If you are in any way "different" ( Jewish, Baptist, Black) they will never accept you, anyway.
