Is your family gatherings drama-free or drama-filled?

It seems like my family has to end up in some drama-filled episode. The sad part is we start off having a great time together! Then someone always brings in the past and BAM! It all starts like a chain reaction after that. And the hard part is not getting together 'cos I love my family and we have great laughs. So just wondering if anyone has this kinda problem in their families.

  • We all have a good time. I don't bring up their past and they don't bring up mine. Plus I think the best my Mom can do is say how I used to cry when yelled at.

  • When my family would get together it always turned into a battle, warzone, with lots of hurts feelings from the past which then of course created hurt feeling in the present. Some family members just quit attending.

    My husbands family can get together and everyone gets along great.

  • Both my side and DH's side are kinda in the middle. Parts of the family have their differences. My side, partially disabled grandparent who likes to nit pick and play favorites. & another disabled with my oldest aunt running family members away because "she does all the work"

    His side, a bunch of crazies who'll come to blows with each other over petty words & a high on his horse preacher whos wealthy and plays favorites with neices nephews and grand parents

    Overall:: CRAZY PEOPLE :)
