    I always do. Its the least I can do to repay them for all they've done for me and sacrificed for my well being.

    The next time you take them out, I hope the kitchen undercooks your chicken and you vomit your entrails out all over the table.

    I always let my gf's parents pay. They owe me for ensuring they will have good-looking, athletic grandkids.

    It seems disrespectful to try to pay.

    I do unless it's a great big family event. Then usually someone else snags the check way before we're done eating.

    It's a race between me and my father. Normally I now hand my credit card to the hostess without him seeing. This way when the bill comes its just to figure out the tip.

    I just bought dinner then drinks for my parents and their friends which led to the four of them skinny dipping in my pool.

    I always try to pay. Sometimes the FIL insist and I'm not going to disrespect him so I'll let him. With my parents, I'm the only one out of 3 kids what can pay for everyone so I do. My parents never try to talk me out of it.

    Its just my Dad. When I go to Atlanta its on him. When he comes to me I pick up everything.
    I try and treat the old man like a king.
