    you cant ZE - but sometimes you need to suck it up and just make the best of something without being a mega PITA over it.

    There are compromises ... dont put your DH in a situation where he is stuck talking to the guy all night, if you see him in that situation, go and rescue him etc .... but he has to make the effort too.

    Its a hard one

    Perhaps you could catch up with your sister minus your DH more often? That way you're not losing out on time with her, and your DH won't have to deal with G.

    Otherwise, when there is larger family gatherings and the like, I think your DH just needs to go along for your sake and avoid spending one-on-one time with G. Shouldn't be too hard if there are other people around to chat and spend time with.

    Thanks everyone for your responses, sorry I haven't had time to pop back in until now. ZE - I get what you are saying and I agree to some extent, I don't expect DH to start liking G but I also am getting tired of him taking his bad mood out on me in the car and when we are at home.
    I do try to minimise the amount if time they need to spend together, I'm happy to see my sister and the kids without both of our husbands but there are often family occasions where the whole family is invited. I never demand that DH go, I would go on my own but DH wants to come because he doesn't want to miss out on family time.
    Ill try having another talk to DH about it at a time when were not seeing them anytime soon. I get the feeling though that this isn't going to be an issue that resolves quickly. Sigh.
