I keep reading all these posts about hurt feelings, invitations to dinner, crazy relatives, etc.; SO, I thought this could be a thread to vent and let everyone know you are not alone if your family has someone annoying, mean, silly, etc. I will start: I have some great family, but on DH's side, he has two older sisters. He speaks to neither of them. One is a pathological liar, who has hit my MIL, lied to the cops to try to get my FIL arrested, stolen jewlery, picutres, basically anything not nailed down, from in laws, etc. The other sister is not AS bad, but she and DH are on polar ends of belief systems, and don't get along well. This sister has also tried to get DH involved in lies to MIL, who after 19 strokes, (no I didn't mistype the number), has problems with emotions and memory. As a result, they don't get invited over on holidays. It's a bummer because I have no siblings, so my kids have no aunts, pretty much. It isn't something I grieve over or anything, lots of people have no extended family like that, but it still is hard to see them play MIL.
