I have been in a five year relationship. My partner doesn’t really want to meet my family. We don’t live in the same town. He’s met my mother and brother only. And my sister has a wedding coming up and he doesn’t want to go. He became angry when I talked about him coming with me to the wedding. I think this is a bad sign. Don’t men who see you as their future wife want to meet their significant others family ?
You shared that you are in a five year relationship with a man who met your mother and brother. He became angry when you suggested that the two of you attend your sister’s upcoming wedding, and he does not want to attend it. You asked: “Don’t men who see you as their future wife want to meet their significant others family?”-
– well, considering that you shared in your other thread today: (1) you “grew up in a household of verbal physical violence”, (2) you were treated as “second best”, and (3) your sister recently told you regarding her upcoming wedding: “I don’t care if you come or not”-
– Maybe your partner has your best interest in heart, not wanting you to attend a wedding where you are not welcomed, and not wanting you to spend time with people who verbally and physically abused you. Do you think that’s what motivated his anger and refusal to attend your sister’s wedding?
