Does anyone feel fed up with their partners family? I have quite a bad relationship with my partners father who is a small minded, opinionated alcoholic. A couple of years ago I had an argument with him because I didnt want to stay the night at their house after a party. He went off the handle and was insinuating that I am not good enough for his son. In the end, my partner and I nearly split over it because I felt he didnt stick up for me. We finally got over it but my relationship with the father is tainted to say the least. I am very civil because of my partner but I now will only go over to their house on an occasion like yesterday, it was my partners 30th Birthday.
I just had a bit of an awakening yesterday whilst i was there and i felt like bursting out crying! I realised we were all sitting their while he was piping on about sugar and everyone just takes it. Im too scared to speak my mind (very unlike me) in case i start another argument. I feel like im building up resentment thinking about it and i dont think my partner will understand.
