I had lunch with my MIL the other day and said "You know... what they say is true, when you marry the man, you DO marry the family..." (Of course, they become part of my family, I accept them for who they are and vice versa... but marrying the family???)
I blew it off then. But now it's pissing me off! (Don't get me wrong, at this point I wouldn't bring it up again). But what are your thoughts on this? To me I think - I didn't chose the family to be my life-long partner, I don't share a bed with the family, I can't make babies with the family, I don't rely on the family, I don't share my most personal thoughts with the family, the family doesn't pay our mortgage... You get my drift.
This is more or less a rant but I wanted to put it out there/Get everyone's opinion on this one.
