Family vs. love

by Anonymous

Hi everyone!

My partner and I are in a place where we want to move our relationship forward. However, we reached a road block where they do not feel close with my family, and in fact is uncomfortable around my siblings and their partners. I am at a loss on how to fix this and how to improve the relationship between my partner and my family. I want to spend my life with my partner but also do not want my life to become so separated from my family. What are some things I can do to help build this relationship between them especially during COVID.
