Would you end your relationship with your boyfriend/girlfriend if your parents didnt approve?

red cat 2010/06/18 18:25:51
Me and my mom were talking about this the other day, and she thinks if she dosnet like my future boyfriend, then i would need to break up with him, but why should I have to give up my happiness just because my family dosent like him? I think that paretns should be supportive with who ever your spouse may be. What do you think?

    Trust me on this one..Ive been with my fiance for over 2 years now and if I went by what my parents thought we wouldn't have been together for 3 weeks let alone 2 years. you're just going to have to accept the fact that you cannot please everyone with your decisions. Your parents are not going to be spending the most time with him or possibly marrying him some day...you are...Do not do anything you regret...follow your heart

    tell her that you are going to break up with him. then secretly still see him. if she was right and it doesnt work out... then it should be over...

    I would listen to my parents advice but untimatly it would be my decision... same advice I give my daughters... make up your own mind if the person/friend you like is good for you.. I can only tell you my opinion.

    I would probably have a major breakdown if my parents forbid me to see my boyfriend if i really loved him. And even if i didn't love him, i'd probably just carry on dating him because i've been told not to. But seriously, it's not really their business. If he was fairly dodgy, then i could understand the protectiveness but in the end, if i really liked him, that's my business and they'd have to get over it.
  • swimchick 2010/06/18 20:37:35
    I think that if u really love him or her then your parents can deal with it
  • andy 2010/06/18 20:23:48
    I would hear my mom out then i'd tell her my side and try to get her to understand that she needed to give him a chance before not liking him and then except the fact that were going out.
  • Lyana 2010/06/18 19:55:14
    Answer for me of course is no. Luckily my parents are not like that, but if they ever were....oh my oh my, that is an epidemic.....

    answer luckily parents epidemic

    well, being a homosexual with a mother who has severe depression and who likes to blame my homosexuality on society and my own stupidity, i have decided that i need not impress her with my wonderful girls (none of which she's bothered meeting due strictly to reluctance) in order to have a happy relationship.
  • joe59 2010/06/18 19:24:56
    I ended mine when I was young because since I lived under their roof it was their way or the highway and I didn't want to be homelss, plus I had to hear them moan and groan constantly and I really got fed up with them flapping their damn gums.
  • METALheadMom 2010/06/18 19:16:06
    YES I WOULD. But the odds of me PICKING a guy my parents would not approve of are about none. I was never one to go out of my way to create major drama between me and my parents.
  • pain 2010/06/18 18:49:48
    no, because love cant love be separated
  • Alejandra 2010/06/18 18:46:32
    If my dad really thought the guy was scum,I would listen, to him.he was a good judge of character and alwawys looked out for my best interest.and he would also never say no just voice his opionion.
  • METALhe... Alejandra 2010/06/18 19:17:51
    TOTALLY AGREE with that. But KIDS are not like we were either.
  • Alejandra METALhe... 2010/06/18 19:20:04
    Nope , but i've never met a man like my dad again since his death either,he was very special,and i'm every thing i am because of him.
  • SWITCH 2010/06/18 18:38:49

    sometimes parents know best. does this mean i'm going to dump a guy because they dont like him? no way.

    :>:>Desiree Lee<:<:
    Depending on why they didnt like the guy. but if it was like he was being disrespectful to them and stuff like that i would... but if hes a nice guy and they dont like him then no. i wouldnt break up with him.
  • runningintriangles 2010/06/18 18:31:23
    Nope. I'm an adult, it's none of their business. If I choose to date someone they dislike, they'll just have to deal with it.

    Depends on why they didn't like them. I probably wouldn't break up with them though
