Remember when you are planning that special day that there is much more to blend coming. Your wedding is as big or as small as you want. The family cannot be picked like your china pattern. Appreciate the lessons you learn about your partner and the family that comes along with them.
Keep in mind, as stressed as you may find yourself at times, to ask yourself will it really matter tomorrow? If it will, find the middle ground BEFORE it becomes an issue. Love can last, life does move on. Let the issues move along too.
One should know what one is getting into before one makes the decision to get married in the first place. Not knowing the family of your partner, would be just ignorant, if not plain stupid.
Of course it will matter tomorrow. Getting married has consequences and it's best to know those consequences before one engages into the commitment.
I would think common ground should be the basis to begin with.
The "issues" could stem from a number of things and should be handled as they come.
