When you meet her mother remember that is likely what her daughter will resemble at that age. While I know this isn’t always the case, I still wish I had figured this out sooner.

Not just looks.

The apple does not fall far from the tree. Try to meet both parents early in the relationship. Your partner's relationships with their own parents is a strong indicator of how they'll relate to you once the honeymoon period has ended.

You speak the truth. In my situation, my wife did not receive parenting from both parents due to the early divorce. My mother-in law learned the hard way with her poor decisions. It’s funny because many times I consider speaking with her mother about issues because I know she’ll agree with me because she already learned that lesson. On the other hand it’s her daughter and I refrain because I worry she’ll just act like a typical irrational woman. Maybe one day I’ll pull this trigger.

Corollary, talk to her dad and listen what he says about his wife.

That is one of the few relationship advises i got from my dad at a early age. It is so true and i have always remembered it and been able to avoid some really bad relationships heading that advice. Not just looks, but personality as well.
