Have An Opinion?
I am more than happy to decide for myself whether or not I should be with someone, but whether or not my parents approve matters a lot to me. It's not because they are my parents, that doesn't give them any power over my life or decisions, but it's because I massively respect them as individuals who have had an incredibly successful relationship and seen many others fail. We have also had a family member with an almost unbelievably abusive partner but ignored the warnings of their family. We have had the rule that if all other family members, (my parents and sister) veto a partner unanimously, you break up no questions asked. That is our safety net in the absolute worst cases and we have never had to come anywhere close to using it.Proposing to my partner in a few months and my parents are very supportive. They are amazing people.
I am going through this. I know my opinion and my happiness should matter but sometimes family knows best. Sometimes they don't
It entirely depends on their reason for objecting. Like if it's because they cheated in the past, they may have a point, if it's because your partner is from a different culture, then your parents are just wrong. Why are they objecting?
They think he is only after me for his papers he is illegal. He told me we should move in together, however I want to get married. Their idea of thinking this makes no sense. If he wanted his papers we would have gotten married by the law and he wouldn't have asked me to move in
Yeah, I think you are in the right on this one.
