Miss Kitty Posted September 8, 2011 Share Posted September 8, 2011 I am dating a man that I starting to have very strong feelings for. He's already told me that he wants to marry me someday. I am beginning to feel the same way. So, in some ways I very excited to meet his family. On the other hand, I am nervous because I've heard a lot of negative about them and I'm afraid that things may go really sour. I tend to have a temper and to really get angry when anyone insults my man. His family has really hurt him. He loves them because they're his family, but he's really nervous about seeing them again. He's having mixed feelings about the whole thing. He moved down here a few months ago because his mom drained his entire college fund (his money, not money she put in even) and lost it all gambling. He said she's always tried to steal his money his whole life. His sister and him have a strained relationship as well. He has been to jail once for ten days after they got into a big fight. She was beating up his (I believe he was 4 at the time) little nephew which Austin has practically raised himself since she hasn't been much of a mother. He tried to intervene and things got ugly. She sent me a friend request on facebook. She actually posted pictures of her husband in jail and the love letters they send back and forth from the prison! And she told me totell Austin that they're cousin was facing criminal charges which could send her to jail for 20 years. I am used to interesting family dynamics, but his are crazy. His dad abandon him, so he's not coming, but the mom and sister and nephew are. I am so excited to meet his nephew because Austin talks about him all the time, but I have no idea how to deal with this rest of his family. I want things to go pleasantly. Any advice on how to handle this situation? Also on how to help him handle it since I think he was WAY more nervous than I even am. Link to comment
