Does your significant other recognize all your relatives?

Rossie Rossie
Do you have a large extended family, can your significant other recognize and greet them all by their names, when he/she bumps into them on the street? I have lots of aunts, uncles, and cousins, my husband wasn't able to tell who's who, with the ones that we don't get to see often. There's been a few embarrassing incidences when my relatives walked up to greet him, and he doesn't know who they are.

My significant other is good at that, and can greet every one of them by name.

I wouldn't say I have a large family, just average. My boyfriend has met everyone who lives in my province, but only a couple from the group of relatives I have on the other side of the country. He would easily recognize everyone he's met, since he's met them all several times. He also met them in smaller groups, not all in one gathering, which probably helps. Obviously he wouldn't recognize the ones he hasn't met yet.

The only people in my family who know about Master are my immediate family. He's met my parents and knows them; hasn't met my brother yet, but will next year. The rest of my family are in other states (and don't travel), so it's not very likely they'll ever meet him. Although I can imagine the comedy of my down-home, non-worldly father's side of the family meeting a very polite and well-traveled Englishman.

My boyfriend has met my sister, I doubt he remembers her name though.

I have a huge family and my fiance remembers everyones name. He has a crazy godo memory though so I'm not surprised. I dont remember all his relatives names and his family is small than mine lol. But then again, I'm not good with remembering names!

My husband hasn't really seen much of my family other than my parents and grandmother, so I can't say how he would be with remembering the rest.

I live too far away from my family for him to even know anyone but immediate fam anyway.

Not a large extended family so that makes it pretty easy to remember who is who

My husband remembers every one I introduce him to. Unfortunately, I forget names really easily and I forget people he introduces me to all the time!

I'm glad that I don't have to remember all the names... I don't think I would be able to.

Most of my family lives in other states, so when we see them, he has to ask me who most of them are-No bigge though. i do have a semi large family.

Don't have much of an extended family to remember.

My extended family isn't big, but I know that he doesn't remember the names of all of my cousins. But to be fair, I don't remember all of his extended family either, lol.

My family isn't big at all. My mother has 3 siblings, and my father has 2. I only have 5 cousins. My partner sometimes needs to be reminded of someone's name, but that's about it.
His family, on the other hand, is HUGE! His mother has 9 or 10 siblings, and his father has 5. Nearly all of them have married at least once, and he has somewhere around 20 cousins. Even HE needs to ask who some of them are! lol

I have an extended family, but my partners don't know them because a. I have very little to do with my blood family, and b. they live a country away.

My husband can remember the ones he's met in person, but not the ones that he's only seen in photos. I'm glad he can remember the ones he's met, even if he's only met them once or twice

I have a very big family (and that's only half of it since we don't associate with my mother's side) and no, my boyfriend can't recognize them all. I voted "Other" because neither can I! There's too many of them and they switch significant others too much and pop out a new kid every time I see them. Plus, we only see them a few times a year.

My family is so big, I can hardly tell them all apart, let alone my guy!

My girl isn't in the right country to bump into my extended family in the street. But she would recognise most of my immediate family, if shown a picture (except for one sister, who is oddly difficult to capture on camera). But as for extended family, no. But, to be fair, I don't even know or recognise most of them, either.

My fam is a fairly decent size and yes, he knows them all personally.

My man knows my large family at home very well, and even recognizes a few family friends. My stepdad has a large Irish family, but we don't see them often. He knows all the brothers, but can miss out on a few of the kids. There are quite a few of them. He isn't great with names, but that's in general. But he is fantastic at recognizing and greeting warmly.

I have twin sisters and my boyfriend was able to distinguish one from the other surprisingly quickly.

I have a huge family, and I am impressed that my boyfriend knows all my little cousins names as well (if not better) as I do.
