Actually,  this part is kind of funny welsummer.  Because FIL and MIL really do not understand why my family is not closer.  They themselves have their fair share of people who have been not healthy and they have in a very unhealthy way always stuck by them.  DH and I had many many long talks over the years about at what point do you pull the plug on a family member?? 

We both agree his family will let one person sink the entire family ship.  We will not.

So, I keep good relations with most of my family (especially extended) by keeping it loose and light.  Hey, great to see them once or twice a year maybe a card at Christmas.  Focus on the good, remember the fun,  move on before it goes away!
