do your in-laws hang out?

Would love a second (third, and fourth) opinion here. It’s important to me that my family and my in-laws have a relationship. Not saying they need to be best friends but it’s nice to know that me and my husband can host a holiday, invite both sides, and they can enjoy each other’s company!

I thought it’d be nice to do occasional get togethers, dinners, BBQs, etc that allow them to hang out and get to know each other well. (They obviously have met and know each other but we got married right before COVID so it’s been limited!)

My husband doesn’t think we need to force anything… fair! But am I wrong for envisioning a family where in-laws are friends with in-laws? Does anyone have this setup??
