ok here is the thing, me and my girlfriend have been together for almost a year now and we know that we love each other but we just keep having problems from time to time, like sometimes her family will try their best to get into our business and that causes fights and at the end its their faults and she'll admit that and then sometimes i ll do something and screw up and i'll admit its my fault, we both want our relationship to work but we're unsure if it will at this point, has this ever happened to you? i want to thank you for taking the time out of your day to come by and read and review my discussion, and hopefully answer, i hope that you all have had a great week and that you have a happy and safe evening and weekend, thanks again for taking the time to come by!

Sounds like your experiencing the same problems that have popped there heads in many relationships. What you always have to remember is that its you and her not you her and your family's. Yes you will marry into her family but your not married to her family or dating her family, your with her and her alone. Every one makes mistakes and messes up. Just remember to always be able to say hey your right I made a mistake and I was wrong. If you really love each other and want to be together then fight for what you want. Don't give up. My husbands family used to drive me nuts always getting into the middle of what we had going on. I just one day had to tell them look I live your son but what your doing is not helping him or I please dont involve your self in our personal business or your gonna loose us both. After seeing that what I said made since they have backed off. Thank goodness for speaking your mind.

Hi... For me, I think if you really want your relationship to work out, both parties will have to always think of each other and try to give in to each other and not always think of themselves. Sometimes, both parties will face problems coming from their family and it might often cause both of you to argue or quarrel over it. Sometimes in a relationship, there will definitely be pressure coming from the family side and this is the time when both of you must stand together and be for each other. Never ever give up on each other due to the pressure from the family. Argument are common among couples and small arguments will help to enhance the relationship because it will goes to show how much you care for each other. Mutual respect and understanding is very important in a relationship. Hence, it is always good to admit if you are in the wrong and always take care of each other feeling and try not to say hurtful words to each other. Good luck to your relationship and wish you have a blissful and happy life with your girlfriend.
