"give someone the time of day" は慣用句で、「人として認める」という意味があります。 [ご参考]:https://eow.alc.co.jp/search?q=give+someone+the+time+of+day "my partner didn't get the time of day" は、"(our family) didn't give my partner the time of day" と同じ意味を持ち、「私の家族は私のパートナーを人として認めてくれなかった(口もきいてくれなかった)」ということでしょう。

  • out of touch

    I overheard my older daughter telling her sister about her experience during her semester abroad—her sexual experience. She slept with nine different men, one in each country she visited. I left before I could hear more. I never thought that I was a prude, but it was unsettling to hear my baby girl has had more sex partners in a year than I’ve had in my life. I am worried about her behavior and why she would be telling this to her 16-year-old sister. My daughter has a 4.0 GPA, volunteers, and is usually a good person.
