When are you going to tell your parents about us? When will your parents come to see us? What should I tell my parents about our engagement? If all of these questions sound familiar to you, it is possible that your partner is not yet ready to make a lifetime commitment, whereas you have decided to marry.
While this may not seem like a big deal to many, things can get complicated if your parents are waiting to hear from your partner’s side.
In such cases, most couples fight about it, and one person frequently tells the other to have faith and patience.
So, if you’re in a similar situation, instead of stressing and worrying, here’s what you should do.
Talk it out
If your partner isn’t ready or is unable to discuss everything with his or her parents for whatever reason, you should try talking to them. Explain to them why you are insisting on marriage or what is causing you so much stress. Be open about your and your parent’s expectations, and pay attention to what your partner has to say. Make a decision as a group and handle the situation maturely.
Allow your partner some space
There could be thousands of reasons why your partner hasn’t discussed you with his or her parents. Don’t think of them as a cheater or as uninterested in the relationship. Put yourself in their shoes and try to comprehend their situation. Allow them the time and space they need to handle things with care and responsibility. But, at the same time, make sure you’re communicating effectively and telling them about your situation.
Don’t stress out
Any relationship is built on trust and loyalty. So, if you find yourself considering your partner as your future spouse, trust them. Don’t be alarmed or stressed. This will make things difficult for you, and you may act in ways you don’t want to. Negative thoughts will take control of your mind, and you may experience anxiety. As a result, keep the stress at bay. Trust your partner and tell them that things need to be done right away. Be assured that if they are the one for you, the universe will do everything in its power to bring the two of you together.
