Anyone out there?
I'm always dreading this time of the year ever since i got married, my husband wants us to spend xmas with his family which i'm not very fond of and i know that they are also not fond me. We are tolerating each other for the sake of their beloved son and brother.This year it's gonna be more than the xmas days only, he is suggesting the new year as well. Would it be inconsiderate of me if i pack my bags and kids after xmas and go to our own place, just to avoid arguments. Deep down i know this is not so cool but what about my own space and comfort at the same time i don't want him to take sides which is why i'll make it easy for him to stay back regardless of the fact that me and the kids also need him.
Is there anyone who feels like this and how do i handle this without argument.

Discuss this with him. Does he realise how unpleasant this is for you ? And why should EVERY year go his way --- couldn't you go to some family or friends of yours, or on holiday with the kids, some of the time ?
