i know that with most families there are going to be a few people in the family that doesn't like the person you are with for one reason or another, and i still haven't introduced my girlfriend to my family yet, i think its going to be around christmas time when i do it, and i am a little nervous already, i mean my family is very judging and i know that no matter what they say or want i'm still going to be with her, thats just how dedicated i am to her and how much i think we are going to be together for awhile to come...so what about you, does your family like your other? thanks for taking the time out of your day to read and review my discussion and i hope that you will answer, i hope that you had a great day today and i hope that your night is going to be a great night as well, once again thanks for taking the time!

I can honestly say yes, all my family likes my husband. He's very low key and a likable guy. My first husband, on the other hand, they just despised. He treated me badly, was lazy, and didn't like going around my family because they knew all about him. They were very nice to him even though they knew how he was and I think that made him not want to go! I understand what you mean about being judged, as I was judged by my husband's family. His sister doesn't like me at all and that's ok with me cause she's not the person I married LOL

I have made the mistake of telling my family some of the problems my husband and I are having. I was going through some really rough times with my health and because of that I couldn't work and I lost my self respect and took out things on my husband. Sometimes it was his fault and sometimes it was my fault, our fighting. So when I needed to talk to someone about it I would always go to my family. Then when things were good again between my husband and I, I would expect my family to treat him good but some of them just couldn't. They knew too much and some of them didn't approve of him and I being together and so it made things pretty difficult, at times. I now am living in Calgary and my husband is living in Winnipeg and we see each other every couple months, for a week, and my family thinks I'm nuts, for seeing him. It is all my fault that some of them don't like him and the lesson I learned in all of this is, don't talk to the family about personal problems. They will take sides. Alrighty then, talk to you later my friend, Have a good mylotting day, Chris

I am happy to say that my family loves my husband. Now if you asked if his family liked me well that would be a different story. Many people in his family do not like for I am outspoken and honest I do not hide behind my man. If someone says something that is not true I will call them on it. So this should tell you what many people in his family are. My father in law loves me to pieces and will tell me all the time you are the daughter I never had. We are alot alike except I tend to say how I feel in a nicer way haha. They cursed our wedding lol. They all said we would be divorced within 3 years. Here we are 20 years later.
