My FIL lives on the East Coast and is coming to visit us (on the West Coast) this weekend. FIL is a hugger. He doesn't just hug you at the beginning of a visit and then when he leaves, he hugs you when he gets up in the morning, and before he goes to bed, and maybe a few times in between, whenever the mood strikes him. He'll also put his arm around you if he's sitting next to you on the couch. He does this to everyone, including me. I don't love it, but I'm usually ok with it.
But, DH just called him to make sure his flight leaving the East Coast was on time, and he said he had a very bad cold and offered not to come in case he gets us sick. My husband told him he should still come and it will be fine. I think its ok he is coming, but I really don't want to get constant hugs from a sick person, especially because I had to miss work two days this week due to a medical issue with DH, and then I'm traveling for work (flying) next week for a few days as well.
I told DH that I want to ask FIL nicely not to hug me when he gets here, explaining that because of work, I can't afford to get sick, but DH says that it would be rude to ask him that and that if I get sick, I get sick. I think that is BS. Am I out of line here?
