Mike & Liza's Marriage Ref: A Bone To Pick With Dinner



Dear Mike & Liza,

My hus­band and I have been mar­ried 3 years.  His fam­ily lives in town and every year we go to their house for Thanks­giv­ing.  He grew up in a fam­ily that doesn’t like turkey, so his mother always makes a ham for din­ner.  Now the fam­ily includes 2 daughters-in-law and 2 sons-in-law.  We all agree, we like and miss turkey.
I asked if it would be alright for me to bring a turkey to his par­ents house to add to the Thanks­giv­ing feast but he says it would be rude and hurt his mother’s feel­ings.  Shouldn’t fam­i­lies incor­po­rate new tra­di­tions when their chil­dren grow up and get married?

Nicole, Ammon
