Relationships are full of hard parts, and if your mind just went to something dirty then yes they're full of those hard parts too.

His mom asked us if we were "dipping winkies" (please bear in mind I'm a female) and said if he ever needed condoms for us to tell her we're "hungry for Hardee's" and she'd know what we meant and wouldn't have to explain further, and that she would either give us money for or go out and buy us condoms. I was fourteen at the time. Found out years later that she became pregnant and had an abortion at thirteen, she didn't want us to have to make that decision, so she really was just trying to be helpful. But it was a little much the very first time meeting her.

But the hard parts of relationships are mostly those stress inducing moments that start on the first date, continue straight through to that awkward first kiss and keep coming when you're married and having children.

But well before you walk down the aisle you have to deal with one major hard part that's chock full of awkwardness- meeting your partner's parents for the first time.

My girlfriend had me over for dinner at her parent house for the first time. Steak dinner with all of the fixins'. I take my first bite, swallow, immediately start choking. I'm so scared that I'm going to make a bad impression, so I took a drink of water to try to wash it down. Didn't work, so after about fifteen seconds without a single breath my face turns red, so I start freaking out an point at my throat. So my girlfriends mom does the Heimlich maneuver and I throw up all over the floor. Her two miniature schnauzers start licking up the aftermath, girlfriend's dad puts his napkin down and leaves the room.

Redditors aren't afraid to share intimate details of their lives, so when AskReddit threads come up concerning this topic you know the tales told will be equal parts bawdy, bloodcurdling and utterly batty:

Brought my first college boyfriend home for Thanksgiving - we were greeted by my parents in full Star Trek uniforms, dad was wearing spock ears, both giving the "live long and prosper" salute. They ordered pizza and the delivery guy asks my dad why he didn't just have the pizza beamed over.

My wife and I were head-over-heels in love when I met her parents. They are very reserved people. My wife and I were apparently too affectionate in their presence.

Other than that, it went quite well. They think that I'm a bit odd (or perhaps more than a bit), but they've always been welcoming.

My younger daughter's husband actually asked me for her hand in marriage. That among other things impressed me. They are both doing a fantastic job raising their 3 year old identical twin girls and their baby 6 month old sister. I call him Super Dad.
