Talk to your family before the meeting
Let your family know early in advance what you expect of them in the presence of your partner.
Keep the meeting short
First time introduction should be as short as possible. This is because long conversations open room for more faults to be noticed.
Remind your partner that your opinion matters
Let your partner know that despite what your family may seem to think or conclude, your opinion is what really matters.
Don't leave them alone for too long
Your partner should be with you most of the time. Leaving them alone may make them bored or they may feel like you are not concerned about their presence.
Go slow on the baggage
Do not bring up topics about your partner having kids or being divorced. All these are not necessary in the first meeting since it may result to judgements from your family.
At the end of the day, it is the two people in love who will get married. You should not let the opinion of other people determine the fate of your relationship.
