Sound Off Thursday: Would You Choose Your Partner Over Your Family?

We've already heard @AlloBaber and @cindystran's stories about bringing their partners to meet their parents.

In @AlloBaber's case (here) everything went awesome, but in @cindystran's case the first meeting was pretty rocky.

My family has always liked my partners, and I've never had to experience parents disapproving of someone I'm dating.

Personally I feel like if someone rubbed my family in SUCH a bad way, then they must not be right for me. So I'm almost sure I would choose family over a romantic partner.

What about you?

If it really came down to it, would you choose your partner or your family?

I think there's a special case for everyone. *Since you didn't bring up a scenario to base my decision on* For example, I've never had a boyfriend or been interested in falling in love (which my mother is greatly concerned about because she wants me to enjoy my youth lol). If I were to bring someone home it's because they've truly earned my mother's audience. So in this sense my mom would understand.

depends on the family member, if I'm being honest. in most cases, it goes without question that family is first.

I love my family but if I truly loved the person and they couldn't accept that then maybe we need some distance and time for them to realize I'm not giving him up
