So my fiance has two siblings, a brother and sister. Seems they are closer the he is to them. At the beginning of the year at my daughter's 1st birthday, they started a discussion about camping, then the sister asked the brother and his new girlfriend if they all wanted to go camping together, right in front of my fiance and I. I thought it was a little rude, since we weren't invited. Eventually, I let it go though. Then I found out that sister had a party in the summer, and invited brother and his girlfriend, didn't even bother with calling my fiance. I was starting to get peeved. She never calls him to say hi and see how the kids are, ever! At Thanksgiving, my daughter wouldn't even go near her because she had no clue who the heck she was... I could never live having a niece and a nephew and not care about them, wonder how they are etc. I'd be devestated if they didn't know who I was!
Then, MIL had a dinner last weekend. We were all sitting around the dinner table, when SIL brought up that her and her hubby were taking a vacation soon, they had already booked it. BIL's gf said she always wanted to go there and SIL invited them! They added them to the trip and everything!!
My fiance doesn't seem to mind, but he is one to hide his feelings. Am I right to be angry? I think it's absolutely rude that she constantly invites BIL to places but never even considers my fiance!

Honestly I think you have every right to be upset, I never had a sis or bro and either has D H but I gues my MIL makes up for all of that lol, anyways maybe just have a convo w DH , maybe there is some underlying issues from long time ago that have nothing to do with you....

I'm sorry! That's really a difficult situation. It's too bad that they are missing out on your friendship and getting to know their niece and nephew. I hope they see the light soon.
