Relationships: Outsiders weigh in?

One of our readers has been dating someone who is super close to his family. This is usually a nice thing but in this particular case it is unsettling. He has a meddlesome mother and two opinionated sisters who are always butting in to the relationship.

The latest overstep involved the sisters telling him that he should not spend a lot of money on her this Valentine’s Day. They seem to think he already spends too much money on her which sends a bad message.

What do you do when outsiders try to interfere with your relationship? Have you ever had family or friends offer up their advice and opinions about your dating relationship?
