Would you continue dating someone that your parents thought were "not good enough" for you?
I mean "not good enough" as in from a commodified perspective. Based on an evaluation of superficial traits, the parents think your significant other is not good enough for you and therefore they don't approve.
Would you still continue dating such person?

YES! Holy shit, that defines my boyfriend to a 't'. A few of my friends hate him or strongly dislike him. For no clear reason, really. They say it's because there was one time he kept interrupting them, wasn't interested in my doing a muff-diver off of him, etc.. So really petty reasons, not to mention things that happened a year ago, if not more. My mother doesn't like him either. She never says so directly, but all of her side-comments about him not being white, not being religious, etc.. speak loud and clear!
I would and am continuing to date such a person. What I do in my private life, who I date, is no one else's business but my own. The fact that he doesn't match the ideals from a time that was super backwards and interracial/intercultural dating was frowned upon has no significance to me. The fact that some of my friends saw that sure, he may have interrupted them once or twice, but overall treats me a million times better than their own boyfriends treated them is like... background noise to my ears.
He's dating me, not anyone else. They can keep their opinions to themselves.1
