How do you address your partner's parents before and after saying "I Do"? Do you call them mom and dad or by their names after marriage?

I call them by their first names now (before marriage) and I'm pretty sure I still will in a year when we are married.

The only awkward change would be if they asked me to call them something else.
Call them by their first name.
For me, it's customary to call Mom and dad but I can also call ma (Mom) and pa (dad) to differentiate my own parents.
I call them by their names. They did ask me to call them Mum and Dad but I really wasn't comfortable with it so after 5 years still haven't done it and am pretty sure I won't. It's nothing against them, I just don't feel comfortable and I think they understand that now.
I suppose the best thing to do is ask them what they'd like to be called. I don't call my inlaws "Mum" and "Dad" because I already have a Mum and Dad and that would be confusing and seem a bit phony. I call them by their first names.
First name - calling them 'mum' and 'dad' would sound and feel strange.
