I tend to live my life in an up front sort of way. If you are going to talk about your family, I'm going to talk about mine, without regard to how it may be different than yours. Its led to fairly open and respectful relationships with everyone I choose to allow into my life.
We don't choose our family- and hence, when my sister found out we were expecting, 2nd hand accounts recount she went through the roof. She's a very conservative Christian Republican who lives in Alabama. Need I say more? I'm a bit unsettled- but then again, she didn't respond to our wedding invitation, so why would this be any different?
I truly shoudn't care. She and I didn't grow up together- she's more than 20 years my senior-we're not biologically related. I really don't want to care.
