  • I used to in the beginning and learned my lesson. It's really no one's business but husband/wife or bf/gf.

  • When I was younger I used to always call my mom whenever a problem occurred! Now I really don't like getting anyone involved, I handle it on my own.. I found out the more you involve the more opinions are placed on your bf, husband, and it is very hard for ones family to get over it (depending on the situation)!!

  • I use to talk to my mom about my SO. It would normally be something negative because I was seeking guidence, so now my mom hates my SO. I don't talk to her about anything anymore. Now I'm engaged and my mom wants nothing to do with the marriage.

  • No never. The one time I did they came down on husband and I end up defending him

  • I try not to discuss any of my relationship issues with any of my family. They all have big mouths, and it gets around to everyone quick. They also see my husband as the one who "took me away," which I find unfair to him. I don't want them finding any other excuses not to like him.

  • my dad doesn't like to get involved (probly wise), mom is willing to listen and offer feedback, but I dont want her to judge my DH, so I try to avoid it, but sometimes I got no one else to talk to

  • Never. Couples have problems from time to time - I would hate for my parents to think badly of my DH because I said things out of anger to them. I rarely talk to anyone about any issue we have, we work it out together.
