So, what's your strategy? Shape has a few god suggestions. For starters, you should be supportive. If you've voiced your opinion, you've gotta leave it at that.

When it comes to disagreeing with her boo, pick your battles carefully. Check out the full list over at Shape. And, don't forget to bring over the pint of ice cream should a breakup eventually occur.
