And even if your boyfriend smiles and reassures you it’s not a big deal (like John did), in your mind you’re envisioning all of the future family feuding over your relationship. ) We’re living proof that you can indeed overcome this, provided you and your partner are totally committed to the relationship. Sometimes it’s not even a direct attack, but an assumption based on stereotypes or prejudice.
