[@100938,geoam1] well if they invite (it’s a formality to invite everyone) then we have to decline. If we say nothing they chase us down.

[@778935,ThriftStore] then just be up front and tell them you don't feel like going. You shouldn't need an excuse

they would feed into that - they would love if we said that cause that makes us look bad [@1044765,HatterM]

[@778935,ThriftStore] I understand relating with family can be a delicate matter. My own position is if their values are so off from mine, I'm not really bothered that they're family any more and not bothered with what they think of me or say about me.
Say u caught an incurably infectious disease. That will work.
