I’m sorry that things are stressful.  It’s always a big process to have to figure out the different holiday traditions.  Maybe could you go and see everyone one on Christmas Eve and Christmas day at different times?  That way, you can meet the family members but don’t have to spend all day with either person’s family.

When you’re in a serious relationship, your holidays will never be the same. You will never get to spend them doing only your traditions with your loved ones – rather, you and your partner will need to come to a fair agreement. It seems like he might not understand this yet? I don’t think you should tell him he doesn’t have to go with you – doesn’t this just set a precedent for all future years? Instead, you should work our a plan together that splits the holidays fairly between your traditions and his. It’s normal to be nervous about meeting the other person’s family, but it has to happen sometime. What does he propose? Meeting them at the wedding? I hope you can work this out and spend the holidays together.
