@givemecouture:  Ok, stop reasoning with us/him- the kids, your phone, your make up, visit frequency, bathroom sharing, etc. You’re getting bogged down in details. In the end, you agreed to split the time.

This is not an issue that will somehow automatically get better so you guys both need to focus on compromising here. Compromise isn’t “well, one of us got what we want and the other is angry.” Compromise is, well we agree that we should both get to see our families over the holidays and this is what is FAIR– 2 days here, 3 days there.

This is a communication issue– you guys gotta figure this out in a way that no one feels like they’ve given up everything.

Personally, I don’t want to spend 5 days with someone else’s family OR my family in a small space. I am just not comfortable. He needs to be more understanding. Can you go for part and then go to your family??
