'Bachelor' Sean Lowe's First Meeting With Catherine's Dad Is Nothing to Joke About

GossipMonger 7

Sean Lowe meets Catherine Giudici's familyThat frightful day you meet the family. It's scary, right? You find someone you care about this much that you're willing to take the next step. Now that former Bachelor Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici are happily engaged (or ARE they??), Sean's hanging with her fam. The couple posted a funny picture over the weekend (right) about how the interaction went.

... but on a serious note: meeting the parents is huge. Obviously this photo is a joke -- but if it wasn't, I'd say the future isn't looking so bright. Yeah yeah, I've heard people say that the only thing that matters in a relationship is how the two people directly involved really feel. But for me, anyway, there's no way in hell it's gonna work out if you don't get along with my family. No. Way. In. Hell.

Here's the way I see it: Your family always wants what's best for you. If they see you genuinely happy with someone who they sense is a GOOD person, then they will be ecstatic. If there's a reason for them to think otherwise, it's probably well-founded. When you're in the thick of it, head over heels, it's easy to try and push aside the "not so good" stuff because you're just so immersed in these powerful emotions. Sometimes you need someone on the outside, someone who really cares about your well-being, to give you the honest truth.

For me personally, family just means too much. If I'm dating someone seriously and thinking about adding them to that category (one day), then I want everyone to just get along. Is it too much to ask? I say definitely not. If family is that important to you, it should be to them, too.

Do you feel the same way?

Well I am not sure if they will last Philipanos are big families and what I have notice they are very nosy too and talk in their language when they don't like you.  It seems like it is off to a good start with Catherine and Sean it just seems Catherine is more liberal thinking than Sean I really don't see it last long.  Something doesn't seem right kind of odd like odd man out.

hey chantel,

Learn how to spell "Filipinos" first before you start stereotyping them. You seem very astute...ha!

  I think Sean and Catherine will be fine,Yes it is a plus to get along with the inlaws,and Seans family loves Catherine,but even if Catherines family isnt as crazy for Sean doesn't mean it won't work. my family loves my husband and he them,but I don't care to much for his family,they are so wrapped up in their own lives they don't take the time for us,and we live 10 miles from them and we have been married for 24 years.

Pshhh, obvioulsy you've never met my parents. My grandma (my dad's mom) HATED my mom. They made it work.

I think they will last especially when he's on dancing with the stars with someone else and she was in the front row

1. It's Filipino, Filipina (female), & or Filipinos/Filipinas in the plural form.
2. Catherine's father is very much like you Caucasian(italian American).
3. Catherine grew up with a western mindset because she is both born & raised as American.
Anyway, are you not being nosey as well by making an ignorant & racist comment about Filipinos? Is it okay for me to say that all Caucasians are ignorant & racist because you are one?
