Never pick sides, always best to remain sympathetic yet neutral in these types of scenarios.  My in laws are terribly volatile and I find every holiday to be exhausting!  You never know who is going to blow!  I always carry a flask, and always find ways to step out for some air and a little nip, keep smiling and remember to be grateful that you weren’t raised in such turmoil.  Probably one if the things your Fiance loves about you!

@Nona99:  This. Good advice.


My great-grandmother always used to say “Never pick sides when ILs argue. They’ll eventually make up, and you don’t want them remembering that you picked someone’s side.”

Why take anybody’s side? I wouldn’t even get involved.

@amoret11:  Yes I don’t know why you need to pick sides.  If I feel pitted in the middle of other people’s issues, I usually give very non-commital expressions like “I hear ya” or “Yeah, that’s a shame.”  Going forward if they ever ask for direct involvement I’d say “Sorry, not getting involved.”  And change topics, walk away, etc.

I have two sisters and when they go at it I just tell them both that they BOTH need to talk and make up, or that the fight isn’t that important and they need to forgive eachother. By telling them that they are both wrong, you never really pick sides.
