Hmm, perhaps not so different after all.Say you have COVID and quarantine yourself; no one deserves that kind of nonsense. I like 90% of my gf's family, but it's that 10% that can drive you up a wall and back down again with their self righteous "I know best" attitude that starts arguments that last months if not years.
I've tried suggesting she not care and move on, but some of the sentiments out of her family's mouth can't help but merit the "now hold on a second, ************" response most of us want to come back with. Example: we (my gf and I) drink. After my gf was diagnosed with breast cancer in November, in the same breath as "I'm sorry," her own mother blamed it on our drinking because everyone knows drinking is the #1 cause of breast cancer. She's also a Jehovah's Witness and didn't talk to her own daughter for a year when she had the gall to visit in December only to find an erect Christmas tree that my gf put up for her son who's not and never was a JW (and my gf hasn't practiced in almost 30 years, none of her 4 adult children have.)
