I'm friends with this guy for 4 years. We're both married. We know each other from social activity and a year ago our families started to socialize. In the mean time I met his parents, in laws, aunts, uncles, friends... He didn't have a chance to meet my parents and friends yet. This weekend he will meet some of them for my husbands birthday. This friends birthday was yesterday and we were invited. Later I texted him that it was nice. He texted that it was really nice and that he will now meet my parents and friends. It is not the first time that he talks about that. I feel that it really important to him. So, he knows my husband and kids, why is it so important to meet my parents and friends?
