I’m not sure being rich and white has anything to do with their weird attitudes.

Some families are just quirky like that. Just one of the perks of joining a group of people who were raised differently than you.

I think part of it may be the culture of the wealthy… keeping up appearances is certainly not as important in my family or my FI’s, but our families are solidly middle class.  That’s pretty rough; I feel for you!

Nah it’s not because they are rich and white.

It’s because they are jerks.

My Future In-Laws are much the same. I could have typed your last paragraph word for word… Wouldn’t dream of just helping Fiance for the sake of it, have this idea of their ‘family’ that is so far from reality it isn’t funny, etc.

The keeping up appearance BS seems to be number one in their lives.  Drives me mad.  FI does a really hard job, one that most people couldn’t do, and all they do is whinge if he has to work when they want him to do something for them.

I tell myself I’m not marrying into their family, I’m making my own. I keep well away from them.
