Does family always come before your man?

Hold on…. Don't be in such a hurry to answer this question. Weigh it from both sides. 

At times, we say that family comes first but there are times when family and our men don't stand on the same side of the divide. They will not outrightly tell you to choose but you ought to know that you have to elevate one over the other. 

For example, you are planning on getting married and the customary bridal list that they give your fiance is outrageously expensive. Your man then makes a random comment about how your family is opportunistic. He may say it on different occasions, in a derogatory manner. On one hand, you agree with him that the list is outrageous. Besides, he is the man you want to plan a life with so you have to stick together. On the other hand, you understand that the demands are being made by extended family as part of tradition. So, exorbitance can't be helped. Then, what do you do? 

In this situation, I believe that family comes first. He is your man and also family but he has to respect the family that you are related to by blood. You are an extension of your family and if he doesn't respect them, it may mean he has little respect for you. 

Correct his rudeness then put some pressures on your family to help in cutting cost. That is wisdom! 

On a general note, your man should never feel like he can say/do anything to your family and get away with it. Even if they are wrong,  he should express his feelings respectfully then you can handle the issue and an apology can come in where necessary.

Family comes first. When you get married then he gets those kinds of privileges.
