Has anyone else been in the situation where the parents aren't able to meet?
My fiance is from Morocco and his parents still live there. My parents live in a small town in NY and really hate the idea of flying over an ocean and really don't feel safe visiting there. His parents can't come to the US until he becomes a citizen, which will be in about 6 months time. But where my FI and I live is about 8 hours away from my parents so having his parents fly over and then drive to visit my family would be a long distance for his family. And same for my family, they would have to drive 8 hours to catch a flight that goes to Morocco. Is this really awful if our parents never meet? We're planning a vacation to visit his parents in january of next year. This will also be the first time I will be meeting his parents.
Also, is it okay if we get married in the US but only have a small party back in Morocco for FI's family? or should we have a small ceremony there too?
We just got engaged this past weekend, 3/18. He completely surprised me and I had no idea!
