Ultimately, my mother states she will not approve of me marrying a man who is not a Godly man.
The person I am dating isn't...
I feel as though a lot of family's, who are torn apart by religion or have been on the receiving side of being ridiculed by a judgmental "religious" person, have the repurcution of memeber (s) turning away from God. That breaks my heart.
Anyways, my point is that I can see myself with this man I am dating. I haven't told her about him yet because I don't care to be insulted in my relationship and have to stand on the defense. I don't live on my own at the present moment because I have been in an in-between stage after college. I have a move-in date this November.
Just very distraught in knowing that she won't approve of him...
- just be with who makes you happy
- if your mother doesn't approve, end it

Nobody on this planet will EVER know as much or be concerned about what is right for you as you do. If you live your life to make your mom or anyone else happy you will be sacrificing your own happiness in the process.
Is sad when families are torn apart over petty issues but ultimately in order to find true happiness and get the most that you can out of this life you have to do what is right for you.
You are nobody's piece of property. Stand for what you want out of life. If people walk out of your life because of it so be it, it will hurt but you will be better for it in the long run.
