      I said we need a family problem forum too! I just read your whole story and it is a tough one. I too have dealt with family problems from day one. Always FH's family and now mine too. The whole origin of marriage was about the bride and groom leaving their families to go out and start their own. I could talk on this subject for days...for me the most important thing is that FH stand up and defend me with his family. When the shoe was on the other foot I did the same. It made our relationship stronger. We have cut so many people out of our lives in the last year, it has been very hard but over all we are happier. Your idea about holidays and starting new traditions is soo important! We are doing the same. It seems with family if you go on and live your lives without them they get the hint. The more you let them affect you the more they keep doing what they are doing.

      Stay strong! We are always here for you. I like the idea of the "family" we chose for ourselves.

        It was the hardest decision I have ever had to make, but it's been the best one :) Well, aside from choosing FI of course Honestly, life has been SO much better this past week, and if anyone else is even thinking about backing away from their family, do it. It hurts at first, but then you get over the hurt and it feels a million times better :)

              WoW, I just read through this thread and I'm sorry that you had to go through all of this! It sounds as though you and your FI are doing just fine and truly that's all that matters! You guys continue to move forward and start a new legacy!
