I avoided all the drama this year. My side of the family has SIL that drinks too much every time and then talks out her azz and pizzes off someone, usually me.

Wifes family equally dysfunctional. SIL again, divorced husband and took then 14yo daughter to Cali seeking fortune and fame, (think honey boo boo). Their son dropped A&M and does dive master stuff in Nicaragua in season, and commands the couch in the offseason.

Hahaha, just kidding.

Went to Christmas with my then girlfriend and her family. Witnessed a fist fight between a brother and sister, both in their 40's, after one was offended at the outcome of Chinese Christmas gift exchange. The worst part is no alcohol was involved.

I rightfully help defend my wife against my FIL's drunk girlfriend. Hair was pulled...punches thrown...first time I laid my hands on a women. Cops were called and my wife and I went to my folks house. I was scared I/we were going to jail. No charges filled because the officers knew her as a drunk and had made several arrests for PI's.

Long story short... She's gone... Thank god! A Christmas I'll never forget.

This is about 10yrs ago, and not my family, its the couple across the street...but very disfunctional
Our 4 year old daughter slept on the couch to try and catch Santa. About 3am we have a girl beating on the door screaming that "he's trying to stab me!!!" I grab my pistol and head to the door. I recognize the voice as the girl from across the street. She is my age, and about 115lbs. Her fiance is about 10yrs older, and no hair on his tail to back up his mouth. She is covered in blood and a rip or 2 in her clothes. I pull her in the house, and her fiancť is calling me to say she is drugged up and drunk and going crazy. Still this whole time, our daughter is 10ft away asleep on the couch. We had the cops come out, and at that point, the fiancť barracaded himself in his house. Extra police came out and were just about to break down his door when the guys dad showed up. He was able to talk him into surrendering after about an hr. After the fiancť is hauled away, the dad comes to our house and begins to holler at us for not calling him instead of calling the cops. I told him to see his way out before I remove him from my house, and to finish raising his own son before he tries to tell me right from wrong. This whole time our daughter slept on the couch through the whole thing. We were afraid to move her and her awake for the sitiation.
Throughout the situation, we find out a friend of the fiancť got in a fight at the bar the 3 of them were at. The blood on the girl was from the guys fighting/stabbing each other with broken bottles. When the couple got home, the fiancť was trying to cook and yelling that they need to bail the friend out of jail. The girl was trying to tell him that friend went to the hospital before jail. They argued back n forth when the fiancť grabbed her and shoved her away, which is how her clothes got a rip or 2. He ended up getting barred from his own house for 30days.
As you could only hope, that family didn't make it past this event.

Long time ago I politely aske my now ex uncle to step out side after he contentiously insulted my mother. I whooped him and locked him outside. He left and they divorced a year later. I was 22yo. It was festive and jolly when I came back inside.

The Christmas Steak

A man was jogging in the park when he came upon an elf surrounded by people. The elf was reaching into a big red velvet bag and passing out presents. The man, being the polite person he was, waited for the crowd to dissipate. As he approached to pass, the elf said, "Did you get a present?" The man said said "No."
The elf asked, "What would you like?"
The man had been on a diet and spoke without thinking, "I'd like a steak," and chuckled.
"Any thing in particular?" the elf asked.
Again, being polite, as he always was, the man said, "No. As long as it's about an inch thick."
The elf reached deep into the bottom of his bag and handed the man a wrapped gift, smiled and said, Merry Christmas," and poof disappeared. The man stood there a moment staring at the gift in his hand. He went home, put a potato in the oven, lit some charcoal in his grill, and went to take a shower. He came back, opened the fridge and opened the box the elf gave him. For a long moment he just stared down at it. Inside was a one inch square piece of wood, twelve inches long with a sharp point.

An otherwise sane man finds himself surrounded by crazy annoying in laws every year at this time. He spends time in the garage avoiding them the n has a couple of drinks then goes to bed. The cycle repeats until they leave. Not a funny story but pretty typical scenario for my Christmases. God why didn't I go to the lease?!?!

Ah whatever I'll go have another drink then go to bed.

First Christmas after I married my wife. All of my in-laws are pretty great, other than my wife's brother. A real "piece of work", he would spend all his money on his vehicles, then refuse to get anything for his parents or sister. The only reason he got something for his mother, was (and I quote) "Shut [her] the f*** up" (spoken to her face).

Wife and I had just found out that parenthood for us would be a certified miracle, so all the family talk at dinner Christmas Eve, about "when's the kids coming?" was really wearing thin on my wife. Her brother, posts a message on Facebook(while we're at the dinner table, knowing the entire situation) about how happy he is for his sister and her new family, and that he was looking forward to our having kids. And he tags her on facebook, so everyone we know on both sides of the family is getting this notification about it. Both of our phones start blowing up with people saying "OMG CONGRATULATIONS!", to which we have to explain the situation.

My wife at this point is crying, really upset, which leads him to make more offhand comments about how stupid she is. I'm a pretty level headed guy, but admittedly I get a little hot tempered when someone hurts my wife. I start closing distance, when their grandmother(who's 75+ y/o, about 4'10", and maybe a 100 lbs soaking wet) steps in front of me, and quite loudly says(prompting me by my full name), "It's Christmas Eve, so you'll have to just turn the other cheek... (and turns over her shoulder) even if he is being complete ***hole..." This from one of the sweetest little old ladies I'd ever met.

Fast forward nine months, we hadn't spoken to him since that 'event'(a big deal since he and my wife up till we got married, would talk multiple times a day...). We run into him at their parent's place. Apparently he had unplugged a freezer that I'd been keeping in their garage, full of groceries and venison(which all spoiled). She confronts him, and that is responded to with him punching her. I'm not sure how it got to that point. I just hear her from inside the house, scream out "stop, get off of me". I look out to see him man-handling her, throw her face first into the side of his truck(hard enough to for me to hear the "thunk" from inside the house), and punch her in the head. While yelling obscenities about her. I step outside already mad, and yell at him 3 times to get off her, his response was laugh, and hit her again. The 4th time i ordered him to let go, it was backed up with my pistol being drawn. Now that I had his attention, and he was threatening me, the pistol went back in the holster, and placed on the hood of the car.

Yet, I'm the one everyone resents, and no one will bother to talk to me about it.

Tonight's dinner wasn't all that bad. We just kinda stayed quiet and waited for them to leave. Then everything was pretty ok.

That said, I still wasn't invited to the family fish-fry tomorrow, while my wife is on a 36 hour shift at the fire station.

She confronts him, and that is responded to with him punching her. I'm not sure how it got to that point. I just hear her from inside the house, scream out "stop, get off of me". I look out to see him man-handling her, throw her face first into the side of his truck(hard enough to for me to hear the "thunk" from inside the house), and punch her in the head. While yelling obscenities about her. I step outside already mad, and yell at him 3 times to get off her, his response was laugh, and hit her again. The 4th time i ordered him to let go, it was backed up with my pistol being drawn. Now that I had his attention, and he was threatening me, the pistol went back in the holster, and placed on the hood of the car.

Yet, I'm the one everyone resents, and no one will bother to talk to me about it.

*shrugs*

He was hitting your wife and you gave him 3 verbal warnings? My wife's family would be giving me the cold shoulder for letting it go that long. Not saying you handled it wrong because I wasn't in your shoes but I just can't see how they would have expected that situation to end any better. It could have been justifiably way worse for him.

Nothing virtuous about it. He's about 6'7", and works for the rail road. That's not a fight I want to be in. Two things will happen. Either he'll whip me, or I'll seriously hurt him. lose-lose for me. I only wanted the threat ended.

What is your wife's response to that? Especially when the parents say that. Does she enable him, too? No judgement here because I have a dysfunctional family too.

It frustrates her. That's about the best way I can put it.

You handled that completely wrong when you gave a warning. 6'7" just means he will go down harder when you hit him over the head, from behind, with no warning, with what ever was handy that was very hard and preferably heavy.

I put a BiL in the hospital for 4 days for beating my sister. I couldn't whip him as he was much bigger than me. I beat him with a 1x4 board as that was what was handy. You should have done the same. He needed it, he deserved it, and it would have been an educational experience for him.

Sorry, can't hold my tongue, but you sir, are one huge freaking coward!!! You spin it however you choose, but you are still a giant, magnificent coward! You allowed a grown man to beat the he$l out of your wife, while you watched issuing verbal warnings??? You ought to be completely ashamed of yourself as a husband number 1, and a man in general number 2!

Truth known, her family might have gained an ounce of respect for you if you had beat him down! Since you acted like a true coward and issued "verbal" warnings, you have no respect from them at all.

You owe your wife a massive apology for not defending her, and also being a complete sissy in her time of need!

You may want to consider counseling for (A) being dumb enough to share this story on a public forum, and (B) having absolutely zero intestinal fortitude, even when your wife is being thrashed by another man. Either way, you are miles upon miles from being a man! He's 6'7 you said? So how tall does a man have to be while beating your wife before you just turn and run and hide????

What a disgrace.

No amount of butt-whippin will do anyone any good. The boy hasn't had his but whipped a day in his life... doing so now only causes bigger problems. Funny how everyone's answer is always to lose their temper and pound someone into the ground. Sure are some tough guys around here hiding behind keyboards.

There are no words to describe the absolute distaste your disrespect leaves in my mouth. I've not read a worse spewage of neanderthal retardedness since I outgrew 4chan at age 12. Grow up and learn about the real world...

You're an awful tough guy sitting behind your keyboard judging others. Keeping a calm head and ending the threat, regardless if you're capable of understanding the concept, is the right thing to do. Some of us don't get off on revenge fantasies like so many of you guys seem to.

The threat was ended, and without either one of us getting seriously injured. If that is beyond your lizard-brain level of comprehension, that's not my problem.

Yeppers, me also - my family would hide stuff from me because they knew it was face to face with me. My little sister was sexually harassed at work and they didn't tell me for 10 yrs - still found him after that but by that time he was to old for a beat down - the fact that he knew that I knew was enough for me....I let him walk

Iím on the same page as you.
Not to diss the op of this post, but I couldnít fathom watching someone repeatedly assault my wife and just keep telling them to stop. And then to go straight for drawing my pistol. At first sight I would be hands on. There would not be multiple verbal warnings and wouldnít feel the need to pull a pistol when he needed an *** whooping.

And he tags her on facebook, so everyone we know on both sides of the family is getting this notification about it. Both of our phones start blowing up with people saying "OMG CONGRATULATIONS!", to which we have to explain the situation.

My wife at this point is crying, really upset, which leads him to make more offhand comments about how stupid she is. I'm a pretty level headed guy, but admittedly I get a little hot tempered when someone hurts my wife. I start closing distance, when their grandmother(who's 75+ y/o, about 4'10", and maybe a 100 lbs soaking wet) steps in front of me, and quite loudly says(prompting me by my full name), "It's Christmas Eve, so you'll have to just turn the other cheek... (and turns over her shoulder) even if he is being complete ***hole..." This from one of the sweetest little old ladies I'd ever met.

Fast forward nine months, we hadn't spoken to him since that 'event'(a big deal since he and my wife up till we got married, would talk multiple times a day...).

Wow, i hate to hear things like this happen.
Wish you and your family a Merry Christmas.

I thought i had it rough having to deal with one of those "gluten free granola cruncher" SIL. Talk about a strange woman. Wont let her kids be kids and play outside. Freaks about every little thing like mosquito bites, dirt, and random red marks kids naturally get from playing on the floor.

Yet, I'm the one everyone resents, and no one will bother to talk to me about it.

Your a better person then me for sure.

Wife and I had just found out that parenthood for us would be a certified miracle, so all the family talk at dinner Christmas Eve, about "when's the kids coming?" was really wearing thin on my wife. Her brother, posts a message on Facebook(while we're at the dinner table, knowing the entire situation) about how happy he is for his sister and her new family, and that he was looking forward to our having kids. And he tags her on facebook, so everyone we know on both sides of the family is getting this notification about it. Both of our phones start blowing up with people saying "OMG CONGRATULATIONS!", to which we have to explain the situation.

My wife at this point is crying, really upset, which leads him to make more offhand comments about how stupid she is. I'm a pretty level headed guy, but admittedly I get a little hot tempered when someone hurts my wife. I start closing distance, when their grandmother(who's 75+ y/o, about 4'10", and maybe a 100 lbs soaking wet) steps in front of me, and quite loudly says(prompting me by my full name), "It's Christmas Eve, so you'll have to just turn the other cheek... (and turns over her shoulder) even if he is being complete ***hole..." This from one of the sweetest little old ladies I'd ever met.

Fast forward nine months, we hadn't spoken to him since that 'event'(a big deal since he and my wife up till we got married, would talk multiple times a day...). We run into him at their parent's place. Apparently he had unplugged a freezer that I'd been keeping in their garage, full of groceries and venison(which all spoiled). She confronts him, and that is responded to with him punching her. I'm not sure how it got to that point. I just hear her from inside the house, scream out "stop, get off of me". I look out to see him man-handling her, throw her face first into the side of his truck(hard enough to for me to hear the "thunk" from inside the house), and punch her in the head. While yelling obscenities about her. I step outside already mad, and yell at him 3 times to get off her, his response was laugh, and hit her again.

I feel ya on this one...
My wife's brother is a real peice of work. Totally dependent on mom n dad, unfortunately they just keep it going. He keeps getting jobs, then quiting. He once was working a cruise line, but got upset when he realized his job was to clean, not "help the captain". He proceeds to tell them he has a family emergency, get another free hotel in town and be flown back by helicopter before quitting.

Anyways a year after our son was born (after having two miscarriages) we went home to ohio. My wife really wanted to go hangout with her parents and I guess her brother tagged along. My son was in tow. Her brother is acting like a big child, wanting to see our son, blag blah, getting mad that we wont let him watch him, etc. He starts verbally being mean to my wife, and I think hit her. Ain't flying with me. I call and sternly say look, she ain't just your sister, that's my wife, do you understand. I'm about to say more when I hear some commotion, which apparently is him opening the car door and jumping out, running home, and locking himself in his room. He told his parents hes terrified I'm going to shoot him l, but wants to kick my butt. Lol. Well we go to their house to get some things and go see family. At first he stays hidden, but then I can hear him yelling at his mom. She tries to correct him, till he starts back talking her (mind you hes older than me. About 30). I jump in and make it clear, this crap ain't flying. No MIL or FIL deserves to be talked to like that, and I will beat the problem out of you, or you can come behave like an adult with the rest of the family. He shut up, walked back to his room, and locked the door. Did not hear from him the rest of the time and yet somehow I was the troublemaker for christmas the rest of the time lol.

Let me preface this with the fact that I'm 34 years old and my parents have been divorced since I was 10...Well, the wife and I just got home from my mother's house as I'd had enough of both Glenlivet and listening to my mother and her boyfriend argue about whether playing music in your golf cart on the golf course is being inconsiderate and trashy or not. All whilst my father is there as well and is officiating the exchange nonetheless. Yes folks, I'm a fairly screwed up individual...haha

Disfunction is behind us. I suggest y'all do the same and ride off from it. It's not worth keeping.

My niece and SIL live in Oregon but are home for the holidays. At the dinner table, my son tells everybody that my niece says they are moving to Canada if Trump wins the presidency. It was all I could do to not respond how I wanted to. It's the one time a year my wife gets to visit with her and I promised to be on my best behavior.
