That is very odd that he would say that.  Do you drive a limo with a privacy window or something?  My in-law advice is to not let them bother you too much.  Everyone’s family is different, what is normal for yours is not necessarily normal for theirs.

My future in-laws are the opposite of what I grew up around- my parents, all of my relatives, and all of my parents’ friends put their kids first before their relationship. That’s just what I grew up with- the parents had a few small problems here and there because they put their kids before each other, but everything turned out well in the end. SO’s parents and family put their relationship before their kid’s needs, and I really dislike that- they didn’t help their kids at all, and went about their own business. Our family sticks together and helps each other out, both parents and kids, but SO’s family is far less likely to do that. Can’t stand it, hah- I get along with his mom just fine, but everyone else is kind of, well, whatever If they don’t care enough about their son to help him and care about him, then I’m not going to put much effort out to care about them. All families are different, so I completely understand where you’re coming from!
