I have a question/problem I need help with. I’m going to my fiancés parents’ house for Thanksgiving this year for the first time ever. Well last night I was going on and on about how Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and I can’t wait to stuff my face full of turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes and pie, when she casually informs me that her family doesn’t celebrate a “traditional” Thanksgiving. Instead her family prefers to make Thanksgiving into a day of repentance for all the deplorable horrors the American Indians suffered due at the white man’s hand.

So in its place they prefer to fast, permitting the children to eat while they only allow themselves water, saltines and black coffee! I told her that this is pure insanity and if she wants me there that I will be bringing a bottle of wine and turkey potpie in my jacket pocket. Now she’s pissed and hasn’t stopped crying since yesterday claiming I don’t respect her or her family’s traditions! Come on! Its thanksgiving! Isn’t this lunacy? What do I do here?

    You have to respect the people that invited you into their home and their wishes. You can always eat what you want later. My mom always said that all you have to do is play nice and then go home.

    If he does, I’ll personally pull his ‘man card’ and all privileges.

    MAN UP BILLY!
    Yes, you have to respect her family tradition but it goes both ways. Ya gotta eat! Trick here is eat first! Stuff yourself with turkey, pie, stuffing, mashed taters and booze before you leave the house. Let her drive, it’s fine under the circumstances.

    I would make this a long engagement, she deserves her holiday, and you deserve yours, and compermise is the key. If you can’t compermise over a holiday tradition, the REAL issues in life are going to knock you for a loop.
