1. “We’ll see how long this lasts.”
This first one is probably the worst reaction any of my family members had when I told them about my boyfriend. This family member didn’t mean it maliciously, but it sure came off that way.
Even if you’re not a fan of their chosen S/O, saying this is the total wrong move, especially to someone who is clearly happy and enthusiastic about their partner. All it does is squash their happiness and provoke anger.
The important thing to do is to be supportive. Finding a partner is a difficult task, and you should trust that this person is right for them. Assuming and worrying that they’ll break up is not only outrageous and pessimistic, but it’s also super discouraging. If you feel protective or skeptical, it’s probably best to just bite your tongue and be happy for them.
