Do you call them by their first names? Mr/Mrs (last name) or do you call them mom and dad?
The reason I ask is because my brother has been dating this girl for a year and maybe a little over 6 months in she started calling my mom "mama" and sometimes "mommy" and it just bugs me. I feel like that's only appropriate when they're married. I don't know. What do you guys think?

It really depends on the situation. If I barely know them I would call them Mr.___ and Mrs.____ but if I have actually gotten to know them pretty well I might start calling them by their firs names. Using Mom and Dad is a unique situation and could be a result of her either trying to get closer and more integrated in the family, or she may come from a poor home environment and see your parents as a mother/father figure.0
