Anyone like their partner’s holiday events more than your own family holidays? It’s so hard splitting holidays between families when there’s such a difference in experience and family dynamics

I feel so guilty for not wanting to spend extended time with my family but the dysfunction is so much of a burden

I don’t have family in the US where I live now so all my holidays are with the in-laws and I am tired of that routine. It has been years and as I am getting older I would like to develop some traditions with my own kids but my in-laws are getting older too and don’t like to leave their home much so we keep going to them. Sigh. Wish I thought this through better earlier in my marriage.

Oh absolutely! We’re going to my parents’ for a little bit on the holidays, but most of our time is going to be with my partner’s family because they just interact so much more. Much rather be playing board games after dinner instead of sitting in silence

Same and we just don’t split. My parents are lovely but not brother makes holidays hard. We usually just spend them with my in laws and see my family more frequently during the year without my brother.

EY Parental leave question: how many weeks were you actually out? When I took my leave 3 years ago, I counted total of 21 weeks of leave. That’s including one firm winter holiday week. I remember I initially thought I would be back after 16 weeks, but then in the middle of my time off I got an email from Leave Team with the breakdown and it actually was 21 weeks. Can someone who took leave recently tell me the actual number of weeks?
