It’s the place no-one wants to be.
The two groups of people you love most – your partner and your family – don’t get along. Maybe it’s your mum, dad or sibling who hasn’t warmed to them or maybe it’s the whole lot.
Either way, it’s a nightmare.
It’s a situation that Jessica Origliasso, one half of The Veronicas appears to have found herself in.
After reuniting with ex Ruby Rose just over a year ago, it appears that Rose and Jess’s twin sister Lisa aren’t exactly close judging by a since-deleted tweet the Orange Is The New Black actress posted yesterday.
Of course neither party have confirmed this, but the tweet certainly doesn't scream 'getting along'. There are also 'rumours' that Jess and Lisa aren't as close as they used to be. So what do you do when your partner and family hate each other? Is it automatically game over for your relationship?
"Not necessarily. It’s definitely possible to continue to have good relationships with both even if they don’t get along," relationship coach Isiah McKimmie says.
"Although our family can be a good judge of who would be good for us, they don’t always get it right. Sometimes personal differences mean that people we love clash with each other."
