Do you think your brothers (if you have them) should be friends w/your husband S/O?

I don't but I have heard others say it was strange that my husband and brothers (I have one that is the same age as my husband) don't do anything together when we are in town. We have been married 13 years, together for 15. But he married me, not my brothers, they don't have to be "friends" or even consider him their "brother" I just expect them to be nice when we are all together, and they are.

  • No, they should be amiable but there is no reason for them to be best buddies.

  • I don't particularly like my brother, so I would say no. He gives me the creeps and I would rather he not be around.

  • They don't hang out together just for the heck of it, but my brother lives 3 hours away. They like eachother just fine.

  • Nope... We both have siblings, and there is no need for me to be friends with his or for him to be friends with mine... It's nice when it works that way, but it's not something we see as a big deal. His sister and I avoid each other at all costs, and his brother lives in the basement and we still don't say 2 words to each other in a month...

  • I don't think it's a necessity but I do believe in the saying that they not only marry you but they marry your family as well. It makes things sooo much easier.

  • My SO was friends with 2 of my brothers before we ever got together. They come over on occassions and have a few beers.
