The only time my siblings and DH's siblings were around each other was my wedding.

no, unless it's big events like weddings then they really don't have much of a reason to.

Not my husband's siblings.
No, they didn't travel for it.
My husband is the youngest by a lot of years.

It's completely normal.  I never met my sibling's spouse's families and had no expectation that they would meet mine.  My husband's sisters wanted to be all up everyone's butts in my family but no one on my sided wanted that and they just came off as pushy and nosy.  So no, there are no relationships there.  I wouldn't want there to be.  I would think it weird.

It's not that unusual. I would prefer to keep mine separate, but my siblings are so outgoing and this more people = more fun at every gathering. It can be uncomfortable observing and seeing how different they are from one another.
