Make space

If your parent gets serious with somebody, make accommodations for this person. Budge a little. If he’s gluten-intolerant but every year, per family tradition, you make gluten-heavy pies, just like your deceased parent liked, maybe you can make one gluten-free option for this newcomer. See what I mean? Don’t force him to uncomfortably fit into whatever traditions you have going on.
