That would be bizarre. We don't do that-nor do others. We all get together. So-other partners and their other partners and their kids and their grandkids and their parents and our kids, our other partners, our grandkids etc.
But again-not going to be a lot of "not seeing anyone else in the family" happening.
Even on dates out as a couple-either set of couples in our household-it's COMMON to run into other family in town. It is a small town. Go out to dinner-going to see someone you know. Damn near impossible not to.
