I am from South Asia and my fiancee is an American.
All my life, I have been taught not to address elders by their first name. So, I call all my friends' parents Mr. or Mrs.
My fiancee and her parents have both asked me to call them by first name, but I can't bring myself to do it. It also feels weird to call them Mr. and Mrs. or mom and dad.
