The holidays are fast approaching, and that means spending time with family. If you're married or in a relationship, that means spending time with BOTH of your families, and sometimes that creates a whole mess of problems.
Do you love your guy but can't stand his family? Do you hate them enough to break up with him over it? That's what a YourTango.com poll asked:
•Yes. It's hard enough to make it work without all the baggage. – 47%
•No. The only thing that matters is our love, we can figure out the rest. – 38%

Slacker actually knows someone from high school she had a mild peanut allergy and the in-law was aware of it. Every year she would have holiday dinner at her house to control it. Finally the in-law convinced her to come there one year. Even though there were no visible peanuts on any of the food she ate she has an allergy attack. When she excused herself to the kitchen she noticed that there was a bottle of peanut oil that had been recently used.
Steve says it is good to be him. He doesn’t have to deal with in-laws. If they make your world so miserable it is not worth it.
