How is your relationship with your in laws or so's family?
I have a great friendship with 2 of my so's 8 siblings- and we have been friends for 14 years... They are completely supportive of "Us", and see all of the good that we bring one another.
The other 6... plus his parents... well, that is another story.
How do you cope, without making a fool of yourself, or causing unnecessary offense? Being rude to them definitely does NOT help.

my hubby is an adopted child, I get along great with mom & dad, I love them. His adoptive brother and him do not talk, they do not like each other. He has 2 other adoptive sisters, we do not talk, not because we don't like each other or anything, we just dont. They are alot older than he is, he does keep in contact with them. They live in a different state so it's hard to make that connection. I know what you mean though, about not wanting to be rude and it not helping, sometimes you just do things for your spouse. We are both in situations where we have people in our lives we are not happy with but he talks to them for me, I talk to them for him, out of courtesy I guess.
