Dear Amy: I have been married to my husband for a wonderful 17 years, but I have never felt accepted by his family. He is one of seven children. They are a very close family.
They plan get-togethers and don't remember to tell us until the last minute. When we are not available at the last minute, they shame us for not making family a priority.
Recently I received a Facebook message from one of my husband's brothers. He is a single man who works only six months of the year. He told me I have no right to be upset for not feeling invited to family get-togethers and that we should make time when we are invited.
As a family of four, with three jobs, school...
