I Sided Against Him in a Family Feud; He's Mad

Ask Demetria: When your boyfriend fights with his relatives, it's important to know your role.

(Continued from Page 1)

Now, about him acting up the first time he invites you to a family event and storming out and leaving you to follow after him because he's mad: That's not cool. And after the two of you have had a levelheaded conversation about where you went wrong, you'll need to address where he fell short, too.

I get it; tempers flare. Most of us -- myself included -- do unfavorable things when we are upset, but you two need to talk about a better way than storming out when things aren't going your respective ways.

Good luck!
