i would be grateful that you are marryin into an amazing family with sister in law who obviously loves you etc.

and you and your hubby will create your own family one day.

I’m sorry for what you’re going through with your family. But, please give your sister the benefit of the doubt: being a new mom is really hard work, and the story about the fender bender could be true. I can understand her being nervous taking baby so far, and leaving him behind isn’t an option if she’s breastfeeding (and real difficult for the dad even if she’s not). When pregnant you really do get tired and nauseous, I can fully understand her not wanting to come dress shopping.

That doesn’t excuse your other sisters, or your out of state sister flaking out at the last minute. But please be understanding of a new mom. It is all-consuming, sometimes you get no sleep, etc etc.

I think it is like comparing apples to oranges. Different families and people act differently. Neither type of family dynamic that you explained is right or wrong just different. In life you need to accept people for the way they are. Comparing them to other people/situations and trying to judge what is better is a big mistake and will leave you angry. You can’t chage people.

Be grateful that you have found a loving family that seems to suit your values but just because they are your values pleae try not to judge your family because they don’t share those values.

Some people find close knit families too much, too in your face etc. Some people want close knit families. Neither is right or wrong.
