I have been living with my common law spouse for seven years. We both have children from our previous relationships. When we send out cards we include our family as blended. We received a christmas card again that does not acknowledge me or my children; however, the brother has signed with each name of his family. Is this a
rude way to send a card to a man that has a second family? I have neen ignored by that part of the family from day one.

Hello Theresa,

I am certain being snubbed this way feels rude, and it is. However, if this is an ongoing issue and your husband has not spoken with his brother about this unkind behavior, you will be happier accepting the fact that it will continue to happen and don't take it personally. It is quite difficult to teach civility to an adult who ignores the most basic rules of human behavior.
