Well said Accenture 1, you are right.

I am blessed to have the people I do in my life

Thank you PwC 1, you are correct

Sorry to hear about this OP. Really sorry. This must put a strain on your marriage too. Please talk to your spouse about this and come to a resolution that hopefully won't continue to strain your marriage and won't make you go cRAzY over the holidays. Good luck!

EY OP I understand exactly what you mean. Lack of transparency feels a lot like lying to me. Maybe I'm being dramatic but I just had to end a friendship over this. Unfortunately, with family there has to be a work-around. Good luck!

Not to be critically harsh OP, but those same people you loath SOO much will be there for you when you are on your death bed (hopefully...) and support you. Don't get rid of your blood support system that's really a lot to walk away from and trash. Be thankful you get the opportunity to spend the holidays with family... a lot of people out there don't get the same opportunity you do in this regard.
