    This week on The Counsel Of Many: A couple isn't sure if they should un-invite their transgendered relative to this year's family Christmas dinner. Last year she was a he and not many relatives know about the recent change!

    "My husband's family is a little.... unorthodox & very liberal. My family is a little... conservative & Christian. Suffice it to say that Christmas at our house is a little... insane! This year though, one of my husband's cousins has gone through a sex change and will be showing up as a woman. We have talked this over and over and over and he thinks it will be fine if he/she comes. He thinks that my family, being the Christians, should accept his cousin as a transgendered member of the family. While that might be true in a perfect world, I'm pretty certain this is going to absolutely shock most of my side of the family, to the point where some may turn right around and pack up and leave. Part of me agrees with my husband that as “Christians” they should embrace his cousin no matter what. But part of me feels that it's incredibly unfair for my family, especially the older generation, to have to “embrace” this. The shock of having to try and wrap their heads around this cousin being a male last year and being a female this year is hard for most people to “embrace” never mind being conservative Christian farmers! Yet I also feel horrible having to “un-invite” my husband's cousin! Please give us some advice."
