Cupid’s Advice: 

In a relationship, it is important to support your partner, and that includes respecting their past. For Perry, that means being comfortable with her man’s celebrity ex, the mother to his children. No partnership is perfect, but you can do your best to navigate rough waters by being honest, kind, and patient when it comes to your partner’s obligations:

1. Understand if there’s distance: Depending on how long you have been together or where you stand in the relationship, your partner might not be ready to introduce you to their kid. Remember that this is okay and everyone moves at their own speed.

2. Respect the ex: Be careful about passing judgement or getting directly involved in their relationship. Yes, you are the partner and are a priority, but they are parents together, so their children are high on their list of priorities as well.
