I get along great with my girlfriend we respect each other even though we have different beliefs. We have common beliefs and that we unite on which are a lot. I have dated quiet a few church women and that did not work well for me, so I choose to do something different so that's why I am dating this girlfriend. I feel she gives me stability and confidence that was not there when I dated in the church. I also went through some really ruff traumatic stuff and she has gone through a lot of trauma as well and is able to understand what I have been through. We're is my family has a hard time grasping it. They also give me a hard time about dating her. Any advice please.
Hmmm, respect your family if they are respectful but honestly, you're not a teenager who needs to be extra careful so as to get lunch money. If this woman is extra special to you, stand up for her. Your family won't respect her if you don't demand it.
I'm assuming you two have an understanding on each others beliefs right? This an issue of boundaries man. Whether it's the fact she's an atheist or maybe not "christian" enough or insert any issue they have with whomever your dating. You need to let them know you're not ok with their little comments.
I wouldn't put up with it. I see it as disrespect for family to meddle in my relationships. Especially if they're healthy and make me happy.
