If issues persist, you must play mediator

If you do just have to push on and marry a man, even when your parents didn’t give their blessing, there may always be some tension. And you have to set the boundaries surrounding how your parents respect your partner, says Dr. Louis. “I always recommend that, whoever is connected to that family member, that be the person who sets the boundary. You have a certain level of relationship equity with your mom. If your partner tries to say something to your parent, it’s going to come off a lot differently. If your partner says it, the conflict can escalate, and their relationship will not recover. But your relationship with your family will recover.”
