I'm wondering, Jane. You seem to be sure that his family mistreated him in the past, and feel they have no business expecting anything from him now. But shouldn't this really be up to him to decide ? If he has forgiven them, and wishes to help them, you might still find this annoying, but ought you to let it "drive you insane " ?
If they know at all how you feel, it'd hardly be surprising that they're not keen to talk to you at family gatherings.
There's no way to find a solution except in discussion with your partner, possibly with the help of a family / couples counsellor, to see what's the best way to handle this situation
