My in laws have always been a little "different" but I really don't know how to handle this situation. They live less then two minutes away from us and they haven't been to see my son is over three months. No phone calls or anything. To make things even more complicated my husband works for them so he sees them everyday and they haven't even asked how their grandson is. The thing that bothers me the most is that my husband doesn't seem to care. I feel like he should stand up for our son and find out why they are acting the way they are. I've said that I'm going to call them and see what their problem is but he says that it will just cause him trouble at work. I don't know how he can go work for these people and act like everything is fine. I mean, does he go to work and pretend he doesn't have a son like they act like they don't have a grandson? So I guess my question is who is at fault more, my husband or in laws? How am I suppose to try to figure out why they don't see him if my husband doesn't want me talking to them?Answer Question

Plan a family meal over the weekend and tell your husband to invite them. If they come then problem solved, and if they don't at least you'll know you tried. You can't really force relationships to happen, but you can drive yourself crazy trying. It took me a while to figure this out, but if they aren't interested it's their loss. You can also ask your husband if he thinks they are avoiding for some reason or if it's just the way they are. With my in-laws, it's just the way they are.
