My family are very distant from each other, and I look at my husbands family closeness and really feel envious when I watch them together, how they genuinely enjoy spending time together.

By distant I mean I speak to my parents once every three months and see them twice a year (not my choice but they wont accept any more calls or meet up requests) and the rest of the family are pretty similar

Does anyone else have a distant family like this? Or is my situation unusual?

Other way round here, my family are like your husbands, his are like yours, you can't force them to be interested, his family are your family anyway now so just embrace the closeness.

Thank you, you are right I think I have spent a long time trying to make it something it never is going to be.
