Girlfriend feels asphyxiated by a close clan

AMY: I'm in my thirties and I go out with my boyfriend for two years. While my family lives in a different state, he lives at home with his parents.

That would not be a problem, except that we seem to spend too much time with his family, usually at least one weekend afternoons a weekend, in addition to the week's dinners.
