will you leave your family behind for the sake of your boyfriend/husband?

I do not know what people will think. Different peoples do have their different reasons,right? But to leave your family who raise and love you for the most part of your life... i don't think that's sound good. My friend, she left her family behind for his boyfriend. What's your opinion?

My wife has cut off her family about 6 months ago, and is very happy with her current life. She became ill with major depression and ocd about 12 years ago and was in and out of a psych hospital for about 6 years, when she met me. Her family, mother in particular reminded her on many occasions, how much money and time they had spent on her, making my wife feel guilty for being sick! There was only ever one opinion allowed in the family and that was theirs. They also used to tell us how to bring up our son once he was born, and pay him out if we did something that they didn't agree with.My wife is now a lot happier with her life, and will be even better once the bitter letters stop coming in the mail!

Like what i said earlier on... different peoples must have different reasons. What u and ur wife did.. indeed the best decision. As long as you give her the best of you and helping her to get the best of life, u will get the bless from above. I wish the both of you all the happiness that ever exist in the world !! :)

I don't believe in cutting the ties to ones family but I do believe that everyone needs to distance themselves.I was raised that family takes care of family so I could never just split away from mine .They have always been good to me. But if my family didn't like the guy I am dating [which some don't] then I jsut limit how much time we spend in their company.My boyfriend knows that I don't put my family before him .To me that is what matters.
