There's a big difference between cautious oversight and encouragement. From his "facts" which of course are his take, it sounds almost like she's fostering a relationship with the future inlaws. I certainly don't think someone should be unfriendly, and getting to know someone puts you in the position of being able to talk more openly with them. She ought to be encouraging a larger circle of friends, male and female, for group outings. Get together with the parents of all the group. That is indeed the custom around here for kids of that age. Our son had a circle of about 10 boys and girls, friends with whom he would do things as a group. We met all the parents. We took turns driving the kids to their functions and outings. We had the whole goup including parents to our place for barbcues and we have been to their places for picnics etc. None of these parents are folks I would have normally socialized with. (I am a bit more earthy than most of them and don't have a lot in common, I don't mind farming, don't play golf or tennis, would rather go hunting etc.)
