Last week, the internet went crazy with the story of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, and their revelations about the royal family. While some people applauded the Duke for putting his nuclear family first, some others were of the opinion that he should not have left his extended family for the nuclear family.
This isn’t like a sports team, restaurant, or even your favourite radio/TV station where one poor customer service experience ticks you off. This is a family you’ve known all your life, and the family you have decided to build with – someone you love, and hope to spend the rest of your life with.
Your partner is very important, and so are your blood relatives. So, if you had to choose, who would it be? What happens when it’s your family conflicting with your spouse, and you’re caught in the middle – considering how much you love everyone involved?
This week, I didn’t send out questions to individuals because I’d like for everyone to share their thoughts here. So, as a married man, where do your loyalties lie? With your Nuclear family or with your extended family?
