We just got a save the date to a wedding out of town. It is my DH's brother's stepdaughter. I have no desire to go to this family function and neither do my kids. These relatives have never RSVP'd to our kid's special events in the past when we lived within driving distance for them to attend (2-3 hr drive)and basically don't call or stay in touch with us as a whole family (two grown children, one at home, one away at college). Within the past two years, there has been a small wedding reception at my IL's home for their daughter and also a 50th anniversary party for the IL's, which the only invite was an e-mail to my husband about two weeks before as an invite. My husband says I have too high standards and that he will go alone to this wedding in the summer (plane ticket, gift, etc). He also says I have snubbed them whenever I can, which I feel is the other way around. Since the two parties of their own, I have decided to only send invites, gifts to the FIL and MIL as they are my husband's parents. He keeps in contact with them by phone, his calls only, on birthdays, Christmas, Mother's Day and Father's Day. I could use some advice in regards to RSVP's when these invites come, or should I just let DH handle it all, or should I let them know my true feelings? Thank you for any support.
