Well, It is not quite time to be sending Christmas card yet. The topic amongst my newlywed friends is, "who's house do we go to for the holidays". Many of the couples I have spoken to seem unwilling to compromise on the situation. It is especially tough for people that live long distances from both sides of the family.
One friend I have is a terrible pickle, her family moved to St. George and she hasn't been able to spend the last few holidays with them. Her husband just returned from a mission and has not spent any holidays with his family. You can already see the fight beginning.
Delena and I have had some very civil conversations about it. In fact last year before we got married we talked about it. We (with out a fight) decided we would go to Thanksgiving with her family and Christmas with mine this year. The idea would be that we would rotate each year, unless a family event needed us to switch or attend both we could work it out. I am sure more intense conversations about the topic will take place in the future years, but I am excited that we handled it so peacefully. My man other friends have not been so lucky.
How have you all handled it?
