went ti visit son in law and his family the other day, i like them but he hardly speaks, she is lovely and chatty, really nice person., gc 18m out with other relatives. an hour or so after arrival convo has dried up then gc arrives back and all chat is around gc and how cute she looks and she sneezes that's cute, she farts that cute, you get the drift. all very nice but for four hours ffs? when any other subject was brought up it was in effect shut down again.had gc not come back i think the visit would have been over a lot quicker. anyone else had this problem ? it hasn't put me off though visiting smile
ibu aren't i?

I'm confused. Isn't your son-in-law's "family" your own offspring?

If you mean your son-in-law's parents, it depends. My parents and in-laws are friends and go on holiday together but that's rare. It's not unusual to have nothing in common with your son or daughter's in-laws.

I get this but from my in laws. They will come round to visit but don't speak! It's such hard work to keep a conversation going and they will be here for a few hours. The only things they talk about is my ds which will dry up pretty sharpish then I'm sat trying to think of things to ask them which I get a couple of sentences out of them then nothing again! It's so boring and makes me avoid them.
