My Sister Will No Longer Attend Family Functions At My House – Daily Dilemma
Here Is Today's Daily Dilemma:
My sister and I are married to brothers. They were married first and 2 yrs later my husband and I eloped. My sister and brother-in-law were upset because they were afraid if our marriage went bad that it would affect their relationship with the in-laws. This is the second marriage for my husband and I. This year we will have been married 18 yrs, together for 20 yrs. Ummm... I think we have proven our relationship is strong.
My sister and brother-in-law had a falling out with the in-laws a few years ago while at my house for my daughter's birthday party.
My sister will not attend any event that the in-laws attend. She has even gotten our parents to side with her.
I have stopped trying to be the peacemaker. Now I feel all I can do is invite everyone to my home for occasions, you can come or not. I am not asking people to get along or even talk with each other anymore. I just want to be Switzerland. But it seems like I am always in the middle, I cannot win. What do I do?
The "Daily Dilemma" on the Sean and Richie Show is featured every weekday morning at 6:40am. We and the listeners take on someone's problems and try to offer different perspectives. Now, these don't have to be huge problems- it could just be something bothering you or a friend, or it could be some little thing you and another just can't agree on. If you have a dilemma to share we'd love to hear it just e-mail us here at the show.
