Do you get along w/hubby's side of the family?

My hubby's neice said she hates me yes she used the word hate & I have no idea why?? I'll be seeing her at Thanksgiving & am wondering how to handle this? Yes I've tried talking w/her but she will not come clean on why she said this?!

  • I'm not close with my husbands family. Both his parents are selfish and barely see his kids. Lucky me. My Mom steps in when they step out. BTW if the niece hates you so much why is she spending the holidays with you and your family?

  • I got along well with my In-laws but there were no teens in the family. Just a small family. I wonder why she said that---maybe she is just plain a brat?

  • Nope. If my in laws could see me dead they would... And the feeling is rather mutual. How do I deal? We don't get together with them... If my DH needs or wants to spend time with them, he goes to them & I stay home. My BIL lives in my basement and I don't even go down there to do clothes when he's home... We avoid each other at all costs... When we HAVE to be together for something we do our best to simply ignore the other's presence...

  • Just treat her like nothing ever happened or was said somehow it will come out. Maybe someone said something to her about you and instead of asking you about it she is handling it her way. IDK I hope when she comes over that will be the day you girls can straighten everything all out. GL

  • Thankfully I had a great relationship with DH's parents!!! They were very good to me and our children. I also get on well with his siblings. And he with my family!

    The niece is only 1 person in the room. It is her problem and not yours. Leave it that way. I know it might make you feel a little strange but if get along with the rest of the family, go and enjoy the day. Don't challenge her or get into a situation where people start taking sides because you probably won't win and that is not the purpose of Thanksgiving. Give her the best of yourself regardless of her attitude and what she has said. Hope it goes well for you and your family!
