My boyfriend and I have been together for 4 1/2 years. We're in our early 20's. When we started dating, I immediately clicked with his family and got along great with them. His parents became extra parents for me. I'd come home from college and visit and his mom would be so excited to see me, would call me when I was away to catch up, when I was sick, she'd send me medicine.. we had a great relationship and I really love them. This past summer, my boyfriend and I went on a brief break and his parents were so upset, wanted us to go to couples counseling (offered to pay), told me I'd always be a part of the family, and did about everything to get us back together. We got back together at the end of the summer and everyone was happy. We both went off to school (two separate schools) and flash forward a semester. My boyfriend got asked to leave college because of academic issues and is now living at home and going to a great local school. All of a sudden, they think I'm a bad influence on him, that we should focus on ourselves right now and not worry about each other, that I had a part in his school issues. It's been horribly tense every time I see them and they think his friends are better for him than I am (so instead of letting him visit me, they let him go out with them.. drink and stuff). I'm just very hurt and sad because they've been such a great family to me, and now they've kind of betrayed me. I don't know how to handle it. It's been about 2 months and I need all the advice I can get. Please help!!
