I come from a large family with six siblings. Our youngest sister is very close to our sister-in-law and has begun inviting all of the sister-in-law’s family members (mother, father, cousin, brother and his wife) to events such as Christmas, Easter, and Thanksgiving.
One would expect to see our sister-in-law’s family at functions at her house and even at our younger sister’s house (if she chooses to invite them); but now they seem to be popping up at every event (at other siblings’ houses) because they are invited by the younger sister.
First, am I wrong in not wishing to be constantly exposed to this in-law family? And second, how do I handle the dynamics that come up when the younger sister is angered if anyone has anything to say about the sister-in-law’s family?!
