Should I Bring My New Relationship To Meet The Family?

While holidays can be a special time for couples, they are not without challenges. If you are contemplating bringing your partner home for the holidays but feel conflicted, here are a few questions to ask yourself to help you sort out your feelings.

1.  Have they met your family yet? If the answer is no, consider whether it would be an ideal time for an introduction. Even though holidays are about family and togetherness, they often come with a good bit of pressure and tension, as well. You don’t want to throw your new beaux to the wolves, especially if your family tends to talk about politics. religion, etc. Plus, when everyone is in-and-out of the kitchen and focused on catching up with family, it might be a bit hectic, even if everyone is on their best behavior.

2.  How serious is the relationship? Whether it’s been two weeks, two months, or two years, if you’re not yet at a point where you can see a future with this person, you may end up having to snip their face out of family photos in the future. Erring on the caution side around the holidays is always best when introductions are in order.

3.  Do you WANT them there? If you don’t feel ready, or are feeling pressured by family to bring a partner, then it might not be the right time. On the other hand, if you can’t picture yourself celebrating the holiday without them there, then there’s your answer!

Whatever you may choose, we wish you a happy holiday!
