My wealthy in-laws pay for us to attend family vacations and big events. Should we pay them back?
My husband is the youngest of four siblings who all live in the same state as their parents — which is far from where we live. Whenever there is a family vacation or a big party for a family member, my husband’s siblings or parents generously offer to cover our travel costs so we can also attend, and they never ask us to pay them back. You are part of the family, and they want you to be part of their memories.
