To whom it may concern, I’m currently in a relationship that is loving, and I’m very happy with my partner. My family are of strict religious background so if they would ever know I’m in this relationship they would pretty much disown me as he is of a different religion/background. This has me living a very stressed life not to be caught. I have a fear of facing them and don’t want my relationship to change with them as I love them too and at the same time don’t want to leave my partner for them. How can I realistically achieve having them both in my life?
