Call or Christmas card

by Ana
(Lexington KY)


My son is living together with his girlfriend for 2 years. Should I have expected to receive a call or Christmas card from his girlfriend?

A month ago I send a Christmas gift, she did call to thank me.
I would like to know if it is ok not receive anything from her because they are no engaged.

Hello Ana,

It is always poor manners to not acknowledge the receipt of a gift of any kind. However, it is also never appropriate to ask the party if she/he received the gift. Your son's girlfriend is not demonstrating proper social etiquette.

What a shame.
