Cupid’s Advice:

It can be troubling when your family doesn’t approve of your partner. Check out Cupid’s advice on how to deal with these tough situations:

1. Start small: If your family is hesitant to accept your partner, it’s probably a good idea to start small. Having them come home for the holidays is traditionally a big deal, and it can get super awkward. Instead, try gradually making your partner a part of your family’s life. Some people just take longer to warm up to than others, so it doesn’t mean all hope is lost!

2. Don’t force it: No matter how hard you try, you can’t force people to get along. In fact, forcing a positive relationship upon people often works in reverse. If the relationship between your partner and your family is not what you hoped it’d be, give it some time and don’t meddle! Things will pan out, in due time.

3. Respect the differences: At the end of the day, your family is not the one in the relationship. You are. If you are happy, then that’s ultimately what matters most. Your family and your partner are entitled to feel the ways they feel. Just make sure you keep an open mind and focus on what’s important to you!
