Recently, me and my fiance have mentioned christmas, he said his mother was wanting some sort of christmas dinner as a family(meaning her family) he doesn't seem to like the idea of spending christmas with any family, mine or his, but yet he always manages to see his sister at least once every year without fail. He says he'd rather spend christmas with just me, him, our daughter(by the time she'll be 1) and our unborn child, (he's due 10 dec) but the thing is i did this last year and i love spending christmas with my family and his when he lets them and i don't like the idea of being lonely in a house when i am very close to family and i have been brought up with 'family christmas' every year of my life until last year and i dont want that to change, but although i know my partner doesn't seem to like my mum very much, he likes the rest of my close family and gets on with them, i also know that he doesn't generally like 'parties' of any kind. This year and last, he came up with the excuse of 'you'll be tired from having a new baby' my daughter was born in late october and charlie(unborn child) will be due early december, so yes i can understand this a little, but as i said i love spending christmas with family....and no matter how tired/in pain i may be, even if its only for dinner, i would love to do so. Also he never really spent christmas with his family, either before he met me, that's what i got told. I would like to come up with some sort of compromise, but i really don't know where to start?! I'm starting to think he is very strange?
