First of all, I would like to put it out there that my in-laws are two of the nicest people I know. Truely, I enjoy them and like spending time with them. However, they invite us over all the time. They call my husband and ask him, and he will agree without asking me. I know this is an issue between he and I….but I guess I need some advice on what to say without sounding like I don’t appreciate the invitations, or don’t enjoy their company…that is totally NOT the case, but I often feel like we end up going to a dinner party at their house rather than doing something together. I love my time with my family, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world, so I don’t want him to feel like he can’t spend time with his….

I totally get it. It’s my family that does it, though. I just spoke with them and explained that I am now in a marriage (!) and need to think about what he wants to do as well.
You need to talk to him and explain how you feel. I would definitely say that you BOTH need to agree that you discuss invitations before accepting.

Glad to know I’m not the only one, LOL. I am going to sit him down tonight and talk honestly with him about asking before accepting the invitation.

perhaps you and your Darling Husband could set more dates or times for yourselves…date night if you will. certains days of the week just for you two. then your Dh can accept invotes with his parents when you are free, but you will still have times to yourseves too.
