If not, how do you deal with your differences?
Didn't think I had any problems, but apparently a chip-shouldered distant relative of his has taken an immediate and unprovoked severe dislike to me. Come to find out she treats most females in her orbit the same way. (I feel especially bad for her dil.) Odd duck, but I could care less. Her obnoxious and vicious attitude has guaranteed herself a place firmly out of our lives. Sad thing is, she laid it out for everyone to see. Adults and kids alike. It was the strangest experience. So much for being respectful to my elders. (sigh)
No. And we kind of don't deal with our differences. I pretty much just make an effort to be civil to them when I can't help but be around them and I try not to be around them alot. For example, I don't like his dad's side of his family. They host these weekly dinners that have always been miserable for me. So, I have stopped going with him. He does the same thing with my family. He loves certain people and keeps in contact with them and visits them...but the people he doesn't like he just avoids. And I don't push him to do anything he doesn't want to.
I admit that I HATE his brother. And that one is tough because he is close to my brother. He has this wierd love-hate relationship with my mom, and they sometimes are great friends and sometimes cant stand each other.
Geez, I guess its complicated.
Bahahahah NO! And I dont talk or associate with them.
Yes yes yes,they are amazing,funny,whenever we together i have the time of my life:-)
For the most part. I love his family, they don't always think about things the same way I do, but it's whatever. I don't get along with his dad, but neither does he, so it's a nonissue. We deal with him, by ignoring him. He sends "pitty me" letters once in a while, and I don't know if he is trying to hard, completely oblivious, or just a dumbass.
I LOVE my hubby's family and hang out with my MIL and SIL's whenever I can. They have been more than good to me. We don't always get along, but we try to agree to disagree when that happens. They are fantastic grandparents/uncles/aunts, and I love my nephew's/neice, so the agreeing to disagree is worth it for everyone.
