My MIL is very recently divorced and last Christmas she insisted that we spend the night with her at her new home. We actually really enjoyed ourselves and our new baby liked spending her first Christmas there.
About two months after Christmas, despite the fact that her son repeatedly told her I was very allergic to them, she got a cat.
Now, I don't expect my MIL to not get an animal because one member of her family was allergic. The problem is she keeps insisting we spend the night and is most certainly expecting a repeat of last Christmas. This is after the reminders of my being very allergic and not able to tolerate it.
Question is, are you still obligated to spend the night/a large amount of time at a close relative's home even if they have an animal you can't breathe/break out in hives around?
