My husband is such a good man and I thank God for him every day.  I honestly don't know what keeps him going sometimes. He is military and his family is all the way out in Oklahoma and I try my best to keep th e family together however  i have realized I don't have control over what others do or think and it isn't my worry. My only worry is my own family and what happens to them. My husband is always the one calling his family for the holidays and this year we were so busy and enjoying our family together that we honestly didn't have much time but not a single one of his family members called him! Not one! There is no excuse for that. While I am upset I am not going to let it bother me because I know God has other plans for us and is opening our eyes to the truth. I am not going to worry because it is pointless. I need to be there for my husband and let him know how much he is appreciated here in our own family. I just don't get how people can not love. Love comes so easy to me and that is just who I am I guess but maybe that is why God sent me to him. Maybe God knew he what he needed and now he has it :)

I struggle with a lack of warmth on the part of my in-laws too. Lead by example, thats all we can do. Your husband is fortunate to have you and mine is fortunate to have me. But we are so lucky to have our wonderful hubbys too!

I can relate to your husband, my family is the same way, but I am very thankful for my husband and my kids.  They have shown me that there is love in family, but not everyone has it in their own.  Your husband is very lucky to have you in his live to show him that love is around him!
