So, I guess there's bad blood between my FIL and his mom and the rest of his family. I've only had a glimpse into it a little, being as i've only been married to my hub for 4 1/2 years. All i've seen is my FIL hardly does anything to do with his family anymore and I think my MIL has something to do with it, but not for sure. My husband kinda sides with his parents. I'm not sure he totally understand the whole awkwardness between them either, but all he's ever heard of it is from his mom and dad, so he goes along with what they say/do.
I find it unbelievably sad that they don't act like a family and so my FIL's family is not going to be coming to my twin boys' birthday party because of all of this and seeing my MIL, FIL and SIL.
Regaurdless of whatever's happened, I think it's important to remember that family is family, people say stupid stuff and do dumb stuff and that shouldn't break a family apart.
What can I do? I want to be apart of everything. I mean, they do have a great grandma ect that would like to be apart of things. I don't want to have bad blood because my relationship with "that" side of the family.....
Any advice or words of wisdom? I just hate the situation and think it's totally sad. To me all the stuff that i've "heard" about could be dismissed or worked out...
