Oh, thank goodness your dd is a junior! Whoohoo! I was confused, thought you meant your dd was born 10 yrs ago and that she was only 10, but you must have meant that your divorce was when she was 10. So custody isn't so much of an issue, since it would only be for a few months. Thank goodness, because I wasn't envying you that fight.

I'm glad the post helped.

I'm not going to my wifes Christmas party this year, its a party but she has people flying in to meet her from Chicago so I don't want to be a distraction, money is money. I go to all functions involving family besides this one, i'll even shop for clothes with her.

Default I dont like social events either.....

You know, since I have been with the woman I'm now with, we have been at odds about social events, family gatherings, etc. First off, I'm more of a one-on-one type of person. Never have liked crowds of people. Still, I have attended some of the stuff with her, more to appease her, than because I really wanted to go. She has accused me of being anti-social because I dont care about being in a room full of people the way she does. But, the real problem is that when we get to whatever it is, it will be a to-the-end type of evening. I mean, if whatever starts at two pm and goes till two am, then I might get to escape an hour after its over at three am. This is why I seldom agree to go to any type of function with her. I have discussed this with her many times, and she still can't see it. She still thinks I'm the one with some sort of problem. Oh well, she can continue to go to stuff by herself.

The family functions that my in-laws have are just an excuse for drinking beer.
You have your Christmas Eves, You have Thanksgiving, you have to carve Punkins at Halloween, you have game night, You have B-day parties for the Kids, You have the 4th of July, You have the weddings, You have the Anniversaries, You have the pool parties........I could go on..after nine years of this it is all one blur and I have limited myself to the Holiday season and wish to not attend any other of the wifes families functions. Plus each outing is approx. $40.00....plus I can't stand my wife's sisters husband. He is just one Pompus SOB!! You ladies need to stop dragging your husbands to these events if they have better things to do.

No, my partner can't drag me to see her family. She couldn't drag me to see my family. I don't like either of them. I rather spend time with her or my friends. Though I find the most enjoyment in solitude.

wow this is an old thread, started in 2007! I will chime in because my friend went through this. Her husband wouldn't even go to the store which I thought was super odd. He went to work everyday and was fine with that but anything else he would get freaked out. My friend said it was horrible because if they ran out of milk or something, he absolutely would refuse to go to the store for it. When they did home improvement projects and needed a tool, screws or whatever she had to make the run. Then she wasnt sure what she actually needed, bought the wrong thing and then had to go back. The marriage didnt last.
