It seems a bit highhanded to invite his parents to come when he's not going to be there to entertain him. We have a strict no relatives in the home rule (god put motel six's there for a reason), but I imagine to him it's important to show hospitality to his parents. Which IMO would also mean his being there to show them hospitality.

I don't know what sort of relationship you have with your husband, so I won't suggest what would work with mine. :)

I really don't understand why your husband has a say in whether or not you visit *your* father. We divided family up firmly. My husband would have nothing but influence in suggestions concerning my family. Certainly not power. What difference does it make to him if you see your family?

Again, I don't know your relationship with your husband. I wouldn't say my relationship with my husband is strictly equal - I'd like to say it is, but I think the power goes more to him. But it is collaborative.
