I call them by their first names. I've been married to dh 13 years and known his parents for 17 years but a couple years ago his brother married a girl from overseas and she immediately started calling them "mom" and "dad".

I call my MIL moms since that is what DH calls her. My FIL passed away before I met DH.

I call FIL by his first name or sometimes if the kids are present Grandpa.

MIL is "your (insert descriptive adjective here) mother". We don't actually talk to her so I don't actually have to call her anything, lol!

I call them my DH's parents. I don't really talk to them much. If I have to talk directly to them, I usually use their first names.

I don't really call them anything. If I'm talking to DH's mom about DH's dad, then I'll say "Brian's Dad" or if I'm talking to his dad about his mom then I'll say "Brian's Mom" Otherwise I just don't call them anything.
