One of my cousin's on my mother's side does meth. He will be at the Christmas gathering at my Grandma's house. My wants to go to my grandma's on a differnt day when my family will not be there. The rest of my family will be going to Gandma's the same day my cousin is though so, we will not get to see any of them.
I have not seen many family members on my dad's side of the family in a few years. My dad has a sex addiction and soon after I had my first son got the guts up to tell him he needed to get help and we were not going to be around him unless he did. My dad's family stopped talking to me after I said that. My husband stood by me when my family was sending me hate mail. He confronted my dad and his mother for me. My dad's mother has recently invited us to a church Christmas party. All of my dad's family was going to be there except my dad, or so she said. Two years ago at Christmas time I asked my dad not to go to church, where I was an attending member and he was not, on Christmas so I could see the family and he could see them later. When we arrived at church there he was so, we left. My husband did not want that to happen again.
Should I just go along with my husband decision about not seeing my family for Christmas?
