What to do when his family does not like you nor want to deal with you

28 June 2016, 16:28 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - What to do when his family does not like you nor want to deal with you or her family.

But men do not care most of the time and when a woman makes up her mind nothing her family does or says will change her mind. A man on the other hand is a different case. If his mother says no, you can officially think of yourself as booted. If his sister says no, it can discredit you especially if her respects her and her opinions. If it is his bother and an older one at that, it is the same as the sister.

Men are more easily influenced by their family’s opinions as compared to the women-we are stubborn, even if they are right we will still dream of love.

Hence why women do the most to try and impress the man’s family; but at times it might just ot be a good idea.

Creating a good impression on your initial meetings is a crucial bit-everyone has to do that. You do your best, talk well, are nice and go out of your way to make them comfortable. In my opinion, that should be the end of it because anything surpassing that is akin to being taken advantage of. Someone will say I am giving bad advice but what I am saying is this, don’t go out of your way, if they are not willing to give you that acceptance after getting to know you.

If your man lets his family walk all over you, even after you have established you are seriously dating, you should do a re-evaluation. They should respect you as the spouse/ partner; anything else comes after you have established that relationship with them. Unless he is a scalawag and now you are a scalawag as well by association.

If they make you bend over backwards, do favors, and what not doing all those things will not change their minds later. They will not have that respect that they should have for you and that is why some women end up being stressed by relatives in their own home. You thought after doing all that, they would eventually cave but it is getting to be more and more and even worse. And when you don’t play their game, you are set aside and made to feel like a fugitive. Earn your respect from a man’s family from the beginning. If they cannot take you without the trinkets, they shall have to put up with you then.

If on the other hand you play, trust me, you will never win.

Keep to the points; respect everyone  as you should, and let them do the same for you.
