Does your family dislike your SO?

Ive been with my SO for a year now. everyone in my family HATES him.. My sisters said some pretty horrible things to him. He has said some stuff back but not nearly as bad as they did. I was stuck in the middle. I would fight with my sisters and him telling them both to stop the childish crap. he said i was takin their side and they said i was takin his. My dad finally accepts the fact that im not going to leave him bc they dont like him. I dont have anyone here but him. hes everything to me. My kids love him and his kids. i love his kids as much as i do my own. My sisters live close to each other and hang out with each other. they have their husbands to be with. I now dont talk to my sisters bc of this crap. any advice?

  • Don't worry about the negative opinions of others, especially family their judgment is their problem, not yours. As long as you are happy. My parents judged based on age but that's ridiculous.

  • My parents love my DH (we've been married 20 years) even though he's been physically abusive to me at times; but they still can't stand my sister's husband (they've been married 26 years) and it's so unfair. Okay, he's not well educated and his people skills aren't great, but he's been good to her, loved and cherished her every moment they've been together. I think it's cruel the way my Mom is always denigrating him and being nasty.

  • They used to hate my husband! They never wanted to get to know him. We lived on a golf course and he showed up in a leaky truck. They looked down their noses at him for a long time. Then when we got married, they said we were too young and I was ruining my life. Now all these years later (we've been together 15 years, married almost 14), they love him. They did a lot of damage with the way they treated him for the first few years though, and I doubt it will ever be completely undone.

  • Have u ever talked negative about him to them? What does he do that they think is so horrible?

  • My family doesn't like my DH because of some rumor that was passed around about him that was completely false! They also won't have anything to do with our son because he is living with autism, and refuse to educate themselves about his autism. It's okay, they are the ones losing out. Too bad, they are missing out on a GREAT kid and son and brother in law!
