As for me I have been with my current partner for nearly 3 years and my family have never approved.
I have been married before and they were never a fan of him either. My friends think my partner is great and makes me so happy. We are at the stage of moving in together and getting engaged.I have asked the family on numerous occasions what there problem is with him to which they cant answer.I love him so much but this situation is tearing us apart. They are so rude to him especially my sister.
Communication with your partner’s family is a great stress. I did it only once and I was greatly nervous. That was a pure evil, hell and so on! Hate it! Whatever I was said about always being myself, I simply couldn't grip myself together and show me as I was. I also was sweating and had problems with breathing. I do not even know why it happened, but it was really stressful for me(((( However the next meeting was more or less better. We went on a picnic and spent time together in a good way. Then my partner and I broke up and now I’ll have to meet other people. Gosh, hope this time it will be better.
I generally always thought that I would meet my boyfriend's parents only after a very long relationship. We met a year later, it was unexpected and I was afraid of this most of all in my life. In those days, my partner and I lived separately and we decided to stay at his house for the night because his mother went to work in another city and had to return the next evening. Everything was fine until I heard the keyhole click. It turns out that her work was canceled. She was not shocked when she saw me and was very friendly and pleasant woman. Now we have a wonderful relationship. We even call up sometimes to discuss news or weather
it was very stressful day for me, first meeting with his parents. i was in stress all week before this meeting. i thought what to wear, how to act, what to speak. it was my first meeting with partner's parents. by the way, it was his birthday, and there were not only parents, but grandparents, uncles, aunts, sisters, brothers. i felt so uncomfortable, i was in panic all the day. but fortunately, they accepted me. i became the second son. sometimes, when we have quarrels, his parents stand to my side and teach him how he should behave. it is so pleasant. of course sometimes they have too much interest to our life, thta makes me nervous. i think parents shouldn't interfere in children's life so much.
I want to say that all of us have families and all families are different, each family has own customs and tradition, each family has own points of view and opinions. When you are trying to become a member of the other family the last thing you should do it is to be nervous. they are also people and think they also worry a bit about the meeting.
But they have some advantage - there are a lot of them and you are alone if not to take into account your partner because he is a member of his family. But don't worry if they agreed to meet with you it means they want to know you better and it is a good sign.
Place for chatting and discussion of important questions, place where you can share your stories and experience, to find friends and to become friend for someone.
