Can you imagine being in love with someone who is unable to introduce you to their family? I don’t know how I would manage a relationship if either of our families didn’t approve. Talk about being stuck between a rock and a hard place!
I am very close to my family so if I discovered that they didn’t like my man, I admit I would be crushed. I would mainly be hurt that they didn’t trust my judgment and know that I would not to be involved with a knucklehead. Granted, I’ve had questionable choices in the past, but come on, you can’t hold that against a person forever!
I don’t know how I would manage juggling the relationship and my family because we are so close. We talk nearly everyday, we own companies, property, and spend holidays and vacations together. If they were not happy about my mate, how would that impact the dynamics of the relationship and the connection I had to my family?
Do you ever worry about your relationship being controversial in your family? Have you ever dated someone that your family did not like? Have you ever dated someone whose family did not approve of you? How did you handle it?
Do you think it’s a bad sign if have not met the family after a few months of dating? Would you bring it up or just give it more time?
