Cupid’s Advice:

Gaining support of your relationship from friends and family can be extremely important for a lot of couples. What do you do if your friends and family don’t approve of your relationship? If your friends and family are against your relationship, Cupid has some advice for you:

1. Figure out why: If you’re dealing with family or friends who aren’t supportive of your relationship, first try to understand why. Chances are that your loved ones are trying to protect you, so try to understand their opinion. If they are unsupportive for valid reasons, like if your partner doesn’t treat you properly, it may be understandable for them to not support the relationship. But, if they are unsupportive for reasons that you do not agree with, you may try to warm them up to your significant other.

2. Don’t forget to talk about the good things: One reason that friends and family can become unsupportive of a relationship is if they constantly hear negative things about them. If you vent or complain to your loved ones about fights or things your partner does, your friends and family be getting the impression that your relationship is overall more negative than positive. Don’t forget to tell them about the positive sides of your relationship and the good things about your partner, so that they realize the relationship still makes you happy.
