So, this is my very first post. Since my ex-fiance called off our wedding a few weeks ago (4 months before the day), our relationship has become, as one might imagine, tenuous and strained. At this point, I’m feeling hurt and depressed, and I’m not sure if I’m going to stick around. All of this is pretty terrible, but the thing I’m really not sure how to handle is interacting with his parents/family. He is graduating from college in a few weeks, and I want to be there, since we live together, and because I also have a number of friends graduating that day, but I am sure to see his parents, and I have no clue how I should act. If we’re back to just boyfriend/girlfriend status until we decide whether to stay together or not, should I sit with them? Should I avoid them? I was on very friendly terms with his parents before he broke the engagement, but the pain of having the wedding called off is still fresh enough that I wouldn’t want to risk the embarrassment of becoming emotional in front of them. I’ve combed the internet, but can’t find anything that really handles this particular situation. Any advice?
