9 Things to Think about if Your Family Hates Your Spouse ...


Learning that your family hates your spouse is never fun news to take in.

I had a boyfriend when I was younger and my parents absolutely hated him.

It made the entire relationship tense.

It's hard when your family hates your spouse, whether it's a boyfriend, a girlfriend, a husband, or a wife.

If you are going through a similar situation and you have absolutely no idea what to do, don't worry, girls.2

I've got all of the top tricks on how to deal with your family hating your spouse!

1. Give It Time

Sometimes, it can just take a lot of time for your family to get used to the fact that you are with someone.

If your family hates your spouse, it can be just a matter of time and them getting to know your partner before they start to like him.

I'd definitely give it a few months or even a few years to see if your partner fits into your family.

2. Find out the Reasoning behind Their Hate

If you've given your family a lot of time and they still hate your spouse, it's time to find out why.

There has to be some type of reason, right?2

Was there a falling out?

Was there a fight of some sort?

Did something major happen that caused your family to hate your spouse?

Finding out the reason might better guide you into helping your family learn to like him!

3. Don't Tell Your Spouse

It can cause a lot of tension between your boyfriend or husband and your family if he knows that they hate him.

If they treat him great to his face but talk about him behind his back, it's better he doesn't know.

You can, however, stand up for your spouse when your family starts to downplay and talk trash about him.2
