Is there someone in your life...

..outside of your partner, that effects the quality of your relationship? Whether it be spending too much time with someone else, someone trying to make a move on your partner, or simply someone you and your partner have different feelings toward.

If so, how do you handle it?

Yes. Our separate families.

--his mom has a drinking problem and when I quit tolerating all her drama and issues with everyone--she turned on me.

--my children are fed up with his issues when drinking and had a huge problem with him earlier this year. It almost broke up our relationship--it was so bad. I am now the middle of a tug of war rope.....

Sort of I guess. We live with my mom and stepdad. There are plenty of issues (some serious and some minuscule) that can affect us greatly. We cannot control all of it and we have come to accept that. We focus on what we can control and do our best to fix those things.

When we first got together there were two of my guy friends that he had some issues with. One of them was my then roommate. Another one was an ex boyfriend who I am very good friends with. When the relationship dissolved we transitioned very quickly to being friends, and actually I consider him to be my best friend

It took some time and a few conversations with every one but eventually he got cool with the fact that nearly every single one of my friends are male. (I have exactly 1 female friend lol)

I just wanted to share my story even though it isn't really positive.

My ex gf was very jealous of exes and anyone of the opposite gender who I maintained a friendship with. I couldn't really breathe in that relationship, yet she was allowed to do whatever she wanted. Eventually she left me for someone else. I know this isn't a common outcome of a relationship with someone who is jealous, but it was certainly an interesting twist. I felt guilty for my friendships that she didn't approve of, but now I realize I shouldn't have felt bad. Those people are still in my life, and where is my ex?

I would consider compromising with my current partner if insecurities were to pop up, but I don't think I'd ever cut off a friend if our friendship was strictly platonic yet my partner was super jealous and insecure about it. I would gladly show my lover our conversations and stuff to make her feel better, but not excessively and not if there isn't any progress with her insecurities getting better. I feel insecure too just like the next person, but I would never expect my partner to end a friendship because it made me feel weird. I'd rather inject myself into the friendship and get to know the person so I could possibly feel better. If it were still inappropriate in my eyes, I'd call my partner out on it and communicate how I feel.
