Age difference between family members
My husband and I just got married 1 month ago. I am 4 years older than his brother and his brothers girlfriend and 6-8 years older than his cousins on his mom's side. I have been trying to get to know these people better since essentially we are all "the cousins". I am finding that I am not able to relate to them and quite possibly they are not able to relate to me. They seem as if they want minimal to no relationship with me even though I try to have conversations with them. All of those conversations really are just small talk and I feel they always make some kind of excuse to go away from the conversation and talk to someone else. However, I am able to talk freely with his aunts and uncles and other older members of my husbands family. I am wondering if anyone else has had this experience and if it is just an age difference thing that will get better in time. I really just want to be accepted into his family and feel like i'm such an outsider.
