Husband & Your Family: Do they get along?

Both parties of are of different cultural back grounds. Hence differences in religious view points, political outlook, traditions, etc. What do you do for both parties to get along? Note that both sides have strong personalities and opinions on a lot of different things which causes most of the friction. And how can you avoid getting caught in the middle?

 Everyone gets along well. The only one with a strong personality in my family is my dad. You deal with him by rolling your eyes and shaking your head when he's not looking lol and just nod when he is looking.

My mom likes my DH more than me, I swear its true. My parents are pretty strict Mormons and my DH is agnostic, my dad is Hispanic, my mom white, my DH Hispanic. I thought it was gonna be tough, but I was very wrong. They respect him a lot.

My parents love DH, DH loves my parents.  My MIL loves me, hates DH. It is sad that his mother is so mean to him. My FIL died when DH was 10, this is even sadder because he loved his dad.  Our parents have never spent time together.

My family gets along pretty well with DH and vice versa.  We go there almost every weekend.  They are from different cultures but don't really have different outlooks on things. I come from a multi-cultural family to begin with so they are worldly and accepting of other cultures.  DH only began celebrating some holidays since he moved to the US....he didn't do that before.  It's not important to him but he does it for me and DD.  I avoid getting caught in the middle by telling them to settle their differences amongst each other.
