My girlfriend has a very large extended family and is very close with most everyone in it. I have a moderately sized extended family that I am not close with at all.
We live in Chicago. My girlfriend's cousin, who I have met enough times to count on one hand, is getting married in Baltimore in May. Getting to know this extended family, which I have already met on many occasions, is a large part of why my girlfriend wants me to be there.
My girlfriend wants to take a motor home with her parents and her brother on a four day Memorial Day weekend trip. I think this is a completely unreasonable demand due to the time commitment (Friday through Monday), lodging situation (sleeping in the motor home for three nights with her brother), and how little I know the groom. My girlfriend is upset because she thinks I don't value her family and because I'm not honoring her wants. Is either of us off base here? Help!
