Unsure if breaking up is the correct choice?
Visitor's Question from a 21-30 year old Female
I'm a 21 year old female and have been seeing a man who is 35 for the past 6 weeks. I have loved him for a long time and he is also my first love. When we first started to see each other I kept our relationship a secret from my mom. When she found out she was furious. We had a bad argument and I was given an ultimatium. Choose him or my family. I repaired some of the relationship with my mom but I am not allowed to speak about or mention my parnters name when she is around. He has also been banned from my work because my boss is afraid of a conflict between him and my mom. My partner is well know to the people where I work and the overall opinion is one of dislike. I have been given adviced about him from them as well as my mom. Both my parnter and I have been under a great deal of stress and I have attempted to maintain some form of peace all round. The pressure from my mom is straining my reltionship with my partner, to the point where I worry constantly what will happen if the two accidently meet somewhere. I have begun to think that breaking up might be my only choice. Its not something I want to do but if it means giving peace to my partner. I really need some advice. Is breaking up the correct option? This is my first realtionship so I'm unsure. Any help would be much appreciatied. Thankyou.
My advice is to continue seeing him for a total of three months.
Things should be clear then as to what you should do. You may decide before three months to separate from him. That sounds like a reasonable thing to do since you are considering it. Hope things turn out well for you.
Good luck! George
