  • I've seen a few family feuds in my day (been a part of a couple of them). In my experience, we just stopped communicating- and it was usually preceded by an ugly arguement- so no need for explanation. Dont know all the details of your situation, but I can tell you that it's much easier on everyone for the 2 sides to try to work out their differences. The longer it lasts, the higher the risk of a family divided. So w/ Easter symbolizing new beginnings, I hope you are able to put it behind you. GL :)

  • We moved half way across the country to get away from the hubby's meddling family. We were already looking to move but when the opportunity came to really move away we jumped at it. It was one of the hubby's sisters. We still dont talk to her or have anything to do with her. Meddling bitch that she is.

  • My BIL and SIL. They basicly told my DH they did not like me. My DH had my BIL on speaker on his cell when my BIL was saying bad things about me. (BIL did not know I was listening). I have not talked or went over to their house sense.

  • My mom and my aunt had a huge blow out a few years ago and my mom called me hysterically crying (so much so I thought somethihg had happened to my dad because of the things my aunt said to her. I indirectly wrote her off because of the way she treated my mom but they are slowly rebuilding their relationship so I've stopped inorning her as much.

  • I have a few family members that I no longer speak to--- they could not accept that I have my own opinions on certain topics and since my views disagreed with theirs they were extremely rude about it and told me they would 'forget my email address' and I was like "fine, whatever". Since that day 2 1/2 yrs ago I have not heard a word from them. Oh well their loss and my life is so much happier without all their drama.

  • My family is full of feuds and we've been known to cut people off for their actions.
    My brother is out of the loop because of drug abuse. He knows full well that the family is tired of his lieing and were all tired of it and trying to get him to wake up, stop blaming everyone else, not raising his kids, etc...
    I have very little to do with my sister - she's a crappy mom and a shit disturber. I don't need or want that in my life so except when the family gathers, I don't see or talk to her. I barely say 3 words to her when we are near each other. I haven't told her everything about how I feel because I don't want to cause more issues than is already there & it's not really worth it because she'll just play a victim and never change...
