So I'm 31 years old and my boyfriend is 34. Him and his family are on disability. His parents are in their 60's and retired. He has Crohen's disease and his two brothers and sister just have learning disabilities.
So a friend of my sister's told me a rumor about his family that one of the brother's used to sell weed in the past (10 years ago) and got caught for it.
So now my mom and younger sister don't want me to be with my boyfriend anymore. They said, "If he asks you to marry him, say no?" Like WTF? It's like they want me to be unhappy and live my life alone? That was the past. He told me he doesn't do that stuff anymore. I used to do weed too all the time, even my mom does it with one of her friends once in awhile.
Me and my ex boyfriend used to smoke every weekend too without my mom knowing. But no, my sister's friend had to blurt it out and say bad stuff about the family. Yet my best friends are very supportive and they say I should follow my heart and be with the person I love, that it's my life and I should live it the way I want to and I should.
It's like breaking my heart that my family thinks this way.
I know I've only been with him for a month and I only get to see him only once a week because he works in retail (going to school for child care) and I'm taking care of my great aunt 24/7, unless someone can take her for awhile and give me a break.
Should I tell him of what my family is saying? My mom met him a few times before and she said he's very nice. But ever since last Saturday, she's just been yelling at me either in person or over the phone.
