Don't let people or personal relationships get in the way of playing music or practicing. Anyone who would put a crimp in your practicing, playing or jamming time is someone that you don't need or want in your life.
Of course that philosophy works well until you have offspring, then the demanding little rascals eat up a lot of your time. My solution would be to withhold food and other essentials until they themselves have practiced; that would keep them in line and teach them discipline. I can't do that with my children because that troublesome female in my life doesn't agree with me and she insists on their being fed regardless. You had better iron out issues like this with any prospective spouse before you take the marital plunge, or it's sure to cause you grief.
