WHEN IS THE RIGHT TIME TO INTRODUCE YOUR PARTNER TO YOUR FAMILY? || Once your relationship has gone passed the honeymoon phase of great sex and infatuation.
The L word begins to spell out in your head.
Yes, you begin to admit that you LIKE the guy/girl and begin to develop feelings for this being.
Thereafter, when love songs begin to sound too personal and start to make a whole lot of sense.
Then the other L word begins to spell out in your heart, and that is you falling in LOVE with the person.
After all this, you want to introduce your partner to your family and now things become a bit tricky.
Family dynamics as we know them differ from household to household, and some families are more open than others.
So what happens if you want to introduce your significant other to your parents and you know that your folks are the traditionalist kind?
How do you let them know that you have someone who like the songstress Tamia “Put a move on your heart”?
The conundrum begins.
According to sociology, death has the ability to make ones heart fragile.
It enables one to be closer to their feelings and thus making them more understanding and excepting to things.
This then came to mind that death can probably be the ideal time for your partner to introduce themselves to the family.
As weird as that may sound, this might be the opportune moment for bae to introduce themselves and cement his/her role during this sad time.
Being a pillar of strength and offering your support can go a long way to staking your claim within the family.
So the next time you have a family bereavement, have bae as your shoulder to cry on and that dreaded moment of introducing him/her to the family could now be the least of your worries.
