We've got different family dynamics. My family is very close, and we're more like friends. His family is more traditional as in everything is decided by his dad and they don't usually hang out or talk much, except during meals. We normally celebrate birthdays, Valentine's, Mother's Day and Christmas. They celebrate all that except for Valentine's Day, only his siblings do when in a relationship.
