Counseling for Relationship Challenges after Divorce_Question

Posted on Tuesday, March 3rd, 2015 at 1:29 am.

Dr. Beth, I went through a divorce 4 years ago and 2 years ago I met a special man and we both enjoy our relationship and being together in lots of different ways.  I am 48 and he is 50 and also divorced.  Both of us have adult children and his children have kids of their own while mine are still single and don’t have kids.  We both enjoy spending time with our families but his family lives close while my adult children live far away.  The problem is that his family likes to get together a lot and he really wants me to be a part of all these family gatherings.  I enjoy his family (well, most of them anyway) but I don’t necessarily want to spend as much time with them as he does.  This is sometimes a source of tension in our relationship. What do I do?
