What's the reason for the objection?
If it's because they know he/she has a criminal record, deals drugs, is an alcoholic, hasn't ever had a steady job, and is basically taking a free ride with you... then listen to them and don't get married.
If it's because he/she is a different race, or comes from a different background (religion, income, etc.), then yeah, ignore them and do what makes you happy.2

Watch my Big Fat Greek Wedding, it relates to this question perfectly.
If I really loved my partner and they made me feel good about myself, respected me etc I would marry him, if done for the right reasons.
If my parents had valid points to objectifying to him/her, I'd consider what they're saying, but at the end of the day you've got to make best choice for you. No point trying to make others happy if you're gonna be miserable about it
(Wow all that from an inexperienced teenage girl, surprised myself lol)0
