I know this is unpopular but I really miss doing things with my siblings. I love my partner and I really enjoy spending time with my sister in laws. But I sometimes really miss just the three of us having a night out. Excluding in laws would be rude and therefore everyone is always invited. Sometimes two of us will be alone together but very rarely all three.
So I can completely understand wanting just the siblings being together. I also wouldn’t mind it if my partner did it. I don’t think it is such a big deal, but it soudns like this was presented in very odd way. I have a feeling there was some type of exchange before this? As long as you are not the only one excluded then it’s propably not personal.

I don’t understand why they aren’t allowed to do one activity as a nuclear family with just the siblings. It isn’t like they are leaving you out of Christmas Day or this is an on going problem.

jmai : lol what, if you are marrying into his family they are going to be your family….weird comments here. They sound very bitchy and exclusive to be honest I’d probably expect my husband not to attend if this happened to me. Just my opinion.

Pick your battles. Honestly I’d just leave it alone. Its not worth getting upset about.

Realistically, despite you planning to marry into the family at some point, you are NOT family now. And there is nothing wrong with blood family sometimes doing things that others are not included in. They will be blood forever, regardless of whether you or anyone else marries into the family. That may rub you the wrong way, but it is a fact. Don’t attempt to break up blood family simply because you want to be a part of something; in most cases it will not end well.
