When His Family Is Too Tight-Knit
Whether you come from a well-adjusted family or a toxic one, nobody is quite ready for the experience of marrying into a very tight-knit family. If you’re not used to having family members in all of your business, it can be rather jarring. Marrying into a family that is very close has its perks too, of course—like, they’ll always have your back and you’ll never feel alone again. But, I repeat: you will never feel alone again. One of my best friends is in a situation like this and, I can’t help but find her stories so entertaining. Of course, to her, it’s not just a funny story—it’s her reality. I’m from one of those families who respectfully keep their distance. They’re there if you ask them to be, but not if you don’t. If that’s what you’re used to, and you’re marrying someone with a very close family, get ready: here is what it’s like when his family is very tight-knit.
