Me and my boyfriend of two years are definitely thinking about making things more serious and thinking about marriage. However, there are a LOT, and I mean a LOT, of factors that are against that. My parents highly disapprove of him, and marrying him would most likely mean severing connections with my family.
What do you do when you're in a situation like this? We are both committed to one another but it feels like the world is against us. Should you let it go? Should you fight until you make it work out?

You both are over 18, and old enough to make your own decisions. And by your parents holding a carrot over your nose like a horse, is telling me that they will always Think they can do this no Matter Who Or What they "Disapprove" of. Nip it now, or forever cater to their whinny whims.
The way I see it, you are marrying your soul mate, not your parents, and neither is he, and if they can't accept Him or What you have planned in the future, tell them to stay in their own barn until they are ready to come around. I think with this, they will eventually bite before or even After you walk down the aisle.
You have heard the expression: "You can't fight City Hall," so why bother to waste your wind on their bag of wind. And if they won't give you away at the wedding, tell them you're On your way to the Justice of the Peace, and After this----Gone with the wind.
If you start standing for what they want Now of you, you will continuously be stooping for everything else they shovel your way.
Time to tighten the reins and be your own Master of Minds.
