Everytime my family wants us to come to dinner or come to the movies or help them do something, my husband does not want to go he wants to hang out with his friends instead or ride around on his motercycle idk what to do it drives me crazy. When his family had their family reunion I was the one who got all the details and made us go he wasn't even going at all. I dont get him.

 Some people just don't view those family gatherings as that important, and clearly he is one of them. Does his family or yours get angry that he doesn't show up?

Some men are like this and do not like family things no matter if it is his or your family, I do not like them I no longer have family and his is in NC so we do not do them either but the travel distance for us is bad...

Then go with out him.  I have two uncles (married into the family) that has rarely attended family things. That didnt stop my aunts or cousins from coming.

My husband is the same way doesn't do family get togethers but will stick it out for the boys and I. His family doesn't do Christmas or thanksgiving and don't do anything together as a family where my family uses any excuse to get together. My family was all about familyup until my grandma died in 05 now we rarley get together so when we do we all make sure to go. Plus my gpa will be leaving to move to hawaii in aug. And my aunt won't be far behind him. I enjoy get togethers. I'm just thankfuk my husband sucks it up and goes.

 My family events are optional for my husband. Sometimes he goes but often he does not. He's not a fan of social occassions and I have a better time if he's not there demanding we leave earlier then I would like. Works for us both. So I say you just accept it and go about your business.

my h loves to go to family events!  my family loves him - and seriously for my h any event with food is a good time for him - especially if they have beer too!

I never expect my husband to go to my family's events. Totally optional for him. I actually prefer he doesn't go.
