• It depends on how serious the relationship is. But you must remember, (Dont take this offensively, I mean well) Your parents cannot be with you forever. It's your life partner that will be with you. Cheers.
  • When plp get married it is for each other---the Bibles says a man is to leave his parents and cleave to his wife. We honor and respect our parents by getting married. If they don't agree for no apparent worhthy reason. like you are not old enough---or the spouse is illegal or mental. I say let love reign.
  • Yes, because it's not about them. It's about you.
  • True love can last a life time, so yes it depends on how much you feel for each other. Try to make your parents like him or her.
  • As long as my partner and I like each other we stick.
  • They knew my first one was a jerk long before I did, but I didn't care - it was my life. My second one and I got married sooner than we might have so mom could see it happen before she died. Dad loves him, too and I love him more than both of them put together.
  • I know it's a question I asked but I have to say - I would end the relationship. And I'll explain why - I have a friend who was dealing with the fact she and her boyfriend never spend holidays together unless it's only the two of them. Her parents don't like him and his parents don't like her. Christmas comes around and they both have to decide if they are going to spend the holiday together without their own relatives or apart with their relatives. They have been together for 5 years now and it has taken a toll of the both of them. They are both VERY close to their families which is makes it even worse. For good reason the parents dislike the spouse of their sibling. But to have to decide each and every holiday to me, It's just not worth it. They have since split mainly because of this reason. I still talk to the both of them and they have partners now that they can spend Christmas with each other & parents and.
  • I've never really come up against any partner's parents. The only time I did meet a boyfriend's parents, they really liked me and in fact were very encouraging -- they didn't seem to quite believe his luck ;-) I've had the problem of my parent(s) disliking my choice of partner and assuming they should be able to have a say in my sex life and relationships -- even after I turned 16 (when a child becomes pretty much independent of their parents in England, the legal age of consent and leaving home). However, the parents lost. Whoever gives me ultimatums and is unsupportive of me loses every time. If you want a relationship with me, you'll have to accept my partner/ my parents too (and not be rude about it). Otherwise I'm afraid I want nothing to do with you.
  • Yes. Is it my problem if his parents can't accept me for who I am? Is it his problem if my parents can't accept him for who he is? No. Besides, I am the one that is going to have to live with him if we ever get married or decide to live together. Not them.
  • I am 23 and my boyfriend is 40. We've been together for a year and it's been great!! I live with him in North Carolina, and my family lives in Massachusetts (12 hrs away) My parents didn't have a problem with it until they met him. I really think it's because they saw us happy and got afraid that I'd never move back to Boston to be close to them. After lying to them for a year now about my relationship, I've had enough. I want to come clean, but I don't know how to break it to them nicely, they are very sensitive and throw out ultimatums, like apartments and cars if I move back to Boston. Any suggestions?
  • i would stay together just to tick them off
