If you've dating someone and you love each other, would you break up with him/her due to family reasons and is scared of what the future might bring?
Firstly, nice attempt at being anonymous, but I know exactly who this is.
Secondly, my opinion on this is all circumstantial and biased. What are your circumstances and what are hers/his. If you’re both students and living at home, personally, it’s almost likely that I’d end the relationship. This is all for monetary reasons and having a healthy psyche. Not ending it and living with that kind of hostility is a bit much.
Again, this is assuming that the reasons are that grave. Most parents don’t like their children’s partners. From what I’ve seen, a lot of the reasons are quite petty. Eventually family just get used to the other half, and accept that she/he is there to stay.
That being said, it’s all circumstantial. Every person is different. Some are more stubborn than others. Some are more understanding than others. Your parents are your parents. So respect your parents. They’re going to stay as your parents. If you’re living at home and aren’t financially independent, that’s unfortunately one of the factors to keep in mind.
I know this is easier said than done, but our parents want to help us. They however have their own view of how that is done. So you’ve got to talk to them. If your parents don’t approve of a relationship, try to talk to them about it. Try to find out the reason.
Ultimately, I think the answer depends on the reason, the personality of your family and the lengths you’re willing to go. If you’re willing to fight them are you prepared to cut ties with your family? That’s been the tragic consequence of some stories I’ve heard. But what do I know.
