Trying to sort out the plan for my parents visit has become quite complicated. My parents and my mother-in-law rather enjoy each other's company (gasp!). Or at least they did five years ago, the only time they met. Actually, I do think they have a lot in common - the values and outlook on life - that is more significant than the difference between Michigan and Manhattan. I am very fortunate in that regard: to like my mother-in-law, and that the parental generation gets along. But coordinating another get-together, with my parents not doing NYC... challenges abound.
