A distraught FitPerez reader is about to marry the man of her dreams, but after he drops a bombshell confession, she's not so sure if marriage is the best idea. Careful not to act irrationally, she wrote relationship expert Dr. Karen Stewart for advice, asking:
HELP! I am just about to marry an amazing man, but last night he told me he could care less about my family. I mean why would he say that? Am I crazy to call the wedding off because he doesn’t love my family?
Wow! That's definitely disturbing news before a wedding, so let's hope this helps! According to Dr. Karen:
Wow that is a pretty powerful thing to say to someone right before getting married! I am not sure what prompted him to say such a statement, but you have to ask yourself why you think he did. Has your family been overwhelming during the wedding planning process? Was there previous problems before you decided to get married?
Everyone views their families and their partnerships in a different way. If you are someone who is close with their family and will be spending a lot of time with them, I would suggest discussing with your boyfriend his feelings and why he does not like your family and what can be done. If you are open to a family meeting between your family and your future husband, that would be ideal prior to you calling off your wedding.
