give up trying to be friends, it will be an uphill battle. If your husband loves you then that is enough. I have the same problem with my in-laws. I didn't even try to get them to like me simply because they are shitty people to begin with, even my husband thinks so. We are happier not even attempting to be friends. My husband still sees his brothers but doesn't hang out with the wives etc. Sorry, it is hard to accept but in time you will see its better. The sister in law is the one that should try to be nice not you, you have done nothing wrong.
It's a 13 year old boy, guys. He doesn't yet understand that family's an important part of marriage, both the family you're starting and the coming together of two families. Anyways, some close families have quite a lot of gatherings. My dad's side of the family used to get together once a week before my grandfather died, and go to a cabin to BBQ and such. Even after, they'd still get together once a week, and stay at home. My mom and dad would go, and take my sister and I, to most of these gatherings, even though my mom doesn't get along with my dad's family. You see, Batman(I just got my jollies for today from typing this), family may be very important to her husband, which is why OP wanted to rekindle a friendship that she thought had once existed. Even if you want to call everything I just said invalid, then consider the FML in someone you thought a friend(a great friend), telling you this.
