@lynnabby:  We spend quite a bit of time with FI’s family, but I never feel pressured because I honestly love hanging out with them. They live in the same city and we see them every weekend for at least a 6 or 7 hour visit. Fiance works out of town two weeks of every month and when he’s gone I go for brunch with his parents and his aunt and uncle every single Sunday and attend all family functions when he is away as well. We are very big on family. My parents live farther away and visit every couple of months, and when they do we spend all of our time with them and love it. When they visit we often spend all of our time with his parents and mine together actually. Everyone gets along great.

@lynnabby:  you don’t always have to go with him!


“hey babe, give your parents my love but I’ve been really missing my girlfriends so I’m going to take that night to hang out with xyz”

Uhm, YES. I am in the same boat. only they kind of hold it against my Fiance and I when we “don’t see them enough.” We see them almost weekly, which is apparently not enough. It feels like Fiance and I can neer get a moment to ourselves between work, school, and future in laws
