First of all, I'm 5'7". My boyfriend is 5'5". I couldn't care less!
I was saying something about him and sports, and my dad made a joke about his height. I was like "haha, whatever", and then my mom made a comment about how he's balding a little. Again, I ignored it. (BTW, of course he wasn't present there).
I know they really like him, especially because he treats me like gold and because we're so happy... he's also really nice, he's smart, he's funny. I know they like him.
But the fact that they made a big deal about his appearance made me feel, well... sad. For instance, they've never said anything about my sister's boyfriend's appearance.
I mean, I love him. I don't care that he's short, I don't care that his hair is thinning. But should I? I know I have to ignore my parents, but, do they think I'm like settling for less or something?
Like I said, I don't care. This just kinda made me feel uneasy.

Let me ask you something, are you going to be marrying your parents?
Will they be providing for your future, caring for you, loving you, treating you like gold?
Will you be sleeping with your parents?
Do you kiss your parents like you kiss your man?
They why do you give a crap what they think at all?
Dismiss their asshole comments and be glad you don't live with them, anymore.
Enjoy your man, who treats you like gold and makes you happy.
You belong to him, and he belongs to you, and that's all that matters. I can understand your sadness, I got the same shit from my parents for girlfriends I have had. They're malconteted jackasses who hate to see you happy.
They're family, but thank GOD you no longer with them.0
