Unless the disagreement involves you directly or indirectly, family disputes are best left alone.Most of us would probably agree that family members can openly express any type of emotion they like about one another, but that outsiders are not allowed to weigh in.However, keep in mind that when you do this, you open yourself up to unsolicited advice.
