I love my wife’s family but dread the thought of spending holidays with them
DEAR AMY: With the holidays approaching, I need your advice.
I have been with my wife for 22 years.
We have two wonderful children together.
I love her family, however, I dread spending time at her family’s home.
For one thing I am completely bored at her mother’s house.
I work hard and rarely take a vacation.
Secondly, my nieces and nephews that I have watched grow up have grown mostly into insufferable know-it-all bores. I dread their presence.
Lastly, my brother-in-law turns every conversation into a conversation about money.
My family doesn’t live nearby, and we rarely get together.
This year, I want to be alone, go away alone, and play golf.
How do I propose this to my wife without causing hurt feelings?
