  • Not as much as I'd like. This summer was the first time I've seen my dad in 3 1/2 years. I saw my mom, sister, and nieces last summer as well as this summer. But I'd love to see everyone more than once a year. This is when being clear across the country is the hardest.

  • I'm an only child and my mother is a single parent. We had a huge falling out nearly 10 years ago, and after trying to repair it for a couple of years, I decided I couldn't do it anymore--it was affecting how I treated my husband and children, so I decided to cut all ties, and I haven't seen or spoken to her in over 7 years.

    My husband's family I love to death (MIL, brothers, sisters, spouses, nieces and nephews)...and we see each other for birthdays, holidays, summer BBQ's, roughly every month. :o)

  • I see my parents often, my sister, not so much. I wish I saw my brother more often but he lives out of state. We don't have a relationship with my husband's family.

  • I don't have any siblings and my dad died two years ago.  My mom lives about 400 miles away but I see her about 4 or 5 times a year.

  • We see them twice a year. Hubby is in the navy and right now we live 1400 miles away. If we get stationed in Hawaii next year than we will only probably see them once a year.

  • My Family lives 14 hours away I never see them Unless I go There, I have 8 siblings I only hear from 2 Unless I call-them. They never come to my children's weddings or so on. I even had my daughters baby shower in NJ hoping they would attend They did NOT now that Hurt! After that I now give up. My heart is broken so I will no longer drive 14 hours for their children's weddings or send gifts if I cannot attend an event. or birthday. I was a hard pill to swallow seeing excepting My sibling are selfish people who only love Drama. It makes me wonder if they would come and show their last respects to me if I should pass away. I am one of the youngest of ten children My brother who is my twin is the actual youngest he did attend my daughter's wedding. the only one . I have over 68 nieces and nephews most are adults never see or here from Any of them unless they are having a baby or getting married

  • Usually I see them about once a week. Sometimes more. I do talk to my Mom on the phone about 3 or 4 times a day though.
