My hubby was the only son but even then I felt that I went through a "rigorous" process. Fil looked and scrutinised me from head to toe for the 1st few time we meet. He literally sit facing me and look at me from head to toe Thought I can only see that in the drama.
Told my only son that next time, daddy will also do that to his potential girlfriends.
This reminds me of the first time DH brought me home to meet his parents. When DH went to get me a drink and left me alone with PILs: MIL asked do I cook (yes); do I like to clean (yes); do I love children (yes).
When DH was driving me home, he asked me what we talked about. I told him his Mom was interviewing for a maid
Interesting topic of discussion here. All came about because I wanted to matchmake ds with buds's dd2. I remember the first time I met my PILs. They were mainly chinese speaking type and with my half-past-six chinese, I couldn't make sense of half the things my FIL was telling me. I just did the next best thing. Nodding my head vigorously everytime I think a qn is being asked.
Thanks to ds, my chinese has improved by leaps and bounds (cos must teach him mah). And I can understand every single word that FIL is telling me now What about your experience? Generalizing a bit here, but I can imagine that meeting rich PILs can be a very stressful experience.
