I've been to one family reunion in my life, and I'm not even sure whose family it was since the only people I knew there were my parents and sisters. I don't know if that's normal for family reunions, but I know that everyone who was at this reunion was somehow distantly related to me, or maybe they were related to me through marriage. Either way, I doubt they'd loan me money. I'm heading to another family reunion this summer and it's on a cruise ship, which is exactly where I'd have a family reunion if I ever planned one. The only escape is to jump overboard, so everyone has to get along.
