Meeting Future In-Laws

by Susan
(New York, NY)

I am meeting my son's future in laws for the first time. They are modern orthodox, and the wife foes not wear pants. Should I not wear pants when we go out for a casual dinner?

Hello Susan,

​Yes, it would be very respectful of you to contribute to her comfort. First meetings can be tense anyway, so anything you can do to make it a cordial dinner demonstrates excellent manners.

I hope you enjoy the dinner and the in-laws.
