do you call your inlaws?

Dh is out of town this week and just called to 'suggest' I call my fil today and wish him a happy birthday. I don't want to. He's not a very nice man and the 3 years we've been married I've never called on his birthday nor has he called me. It feels awkward. But I feel like I have to now that Dh has "suggested" it.

Do you call your in laws on their birthdays?

DH calls his dad, not me

Thankfully my in-laws and I are very close.  But, I can certainly understand your point of view.

BTW: I wouldn't call in your situation.

We bought them a cake and celebrated with them.

I tend to see his mom and buy her a gift that is just from me.

I see them on every birthday so I don't have to but I would. They are more my parents then my own. I wouldn't if we went close.

I don't, I sometimes talk to mil but were not fond of each other so.. But I wish her a happy birthday...even though she never does the same for me.

Hell no lol. I'd rather stab myself in the leg with a sharply tined fork than call my in laws.
