A (partial) list of “familial” atrocities which are astonishingly commonplace:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Female_genital_mutilation

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Child_abuse

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honor_killing

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feud#Blood_feuds.2FVendetta

I could go on, but…..if you don’t get the idea, you are literally past the point of no return.

Quite frankly, the best choice I ever made was to sever contact with most of my relatives, and limit my contact with the others to the absolute minimum to placate my wife.

As well: the best thing I can say about my wife’s relatives is: there a certain ones I would genuuinely want to know even if they weren’t “related” to her.
