i have a girl friend (note the spelling) who's based in the U.S. for the longest time, she was TNT. finally she was able to hook up with a cute american who married her and her papers are being processed as we speak. the sad note to this otherwise happy ending is the cutie american is not exactly mr perfect. let's just say he has anger management problems. (no, nothing physical but verbal) before they got married, it was getting pretty bad that she told her sisters about it. naturalmente, her sisters (settled U.S. citizens with families) were totally against the relationship. but despite that, cutie american mended his ways and went through counselling (oh di ba?). so girl friend welcomed him back and they got married.
sisters remain highly suspicious and critical of the relationship. so they have started to distance themselves from girl friend. it was their way of telling her of their disapproval. girl friend continues to reach out but gets shut out. i guess that as long as she remains married to him, they will remain cold.
should sisters continue to stay cold and distant because they believe he is the wrong man for her?
is this a case of 'standing your ground', wanting to see someone you love correct her behavior by changing your own behavior towards her?
