Small Blended Family
My husband's family reunuion was yesterday. For the past three years, he won't attend, despite efforts from his mom. The family is relatively small (his mom and one uncle) and they are not a close knit family. However, some are striving to be.
We have two kids and two grand-daughters and they may never know all the history simply because my husband's family doesn't even know it. My mother-in-law has been married four times. The third husband adopted all of her 7 kids and changed their last names to his. Needless to say, he's no longer in the picture. So the siblings don't all share the same father. Then there are the step kids (a mess I know).
Regardless, I would like to attend the family reunion but he won't and I don't feel comfortable going unless he's with me.
