My family has stopped talking to me because I have gotten back with my ex boyfriend. I want to give him another chance because I love him. Problem is my family keeps telling me I'm crazy and that I'm making a mistake.He wants to marry me but if I do my family will probably want nothing to do with me anymore.Anyone have a similar situation ? if so what was the outcome? thanks in advance

Yes, my family disapproves of the woman I dated for many years for a number of reasons. Truthfully, she was never given a fair chance. Furthermore, I went through a bitter divorce and lost everything. They helped me get back on my feet. Now they wave the inheritance flag in front of me. They are not the controlling type but use money as a tool to get their way. The money is substantial. Essentially, I've had to move out of town to maintain my relationship behind closed doors. It sucks but we make it work. It's a sacrifice but the payoff will be big. Keep the faith and play the game. Family will make you believe your the nutty one when in reality they are dictating your life and wanting what they feel is only best for you. Can't fault them there but, I agree, it's frustrating.

What did he do that you are giving him another chance? Men will come and go but you only have one family. And to living it - it's a small world, your family probably knows what is going on.

definitely depends on what you are giving him another chance about. but don't feel like you have to choose your family automatically. if your family is like my family you might not want to choose them either.

I am very close to my family and thetruth is I know they are right about a lot of things concerning him and I. I can't help the fact I have feelings for him & we want to get married. im afraid if I go with my feelings I will regret it or if I end the relationship I will also regret it. Don't know what way to go!

Family often sees the person for who they really are because they aren't "in love" with that person. It's not a problem if someone decides to spend their life with someone who is not good for them or of questionable character. It is a problem when someone expects their family to turn a blind eye to that person's actions, just because "they" are in love with them. Family is under no obligation to have a relationship with someone that a family member decides to be with.

What about a family that disapproves, won't tell you directly to your face but makes it obvious by their actions? Then when you confront them, they deny what you say. I've experienced this level of judgement and there was never any particular incident or situation that took place. Fact is, family is willing to secretly disapprove of my choice of partner despite an outstanding personal track record on my behalf.

If your parent disapproves of your current boyfriend, they must have a strong reason to do so. Remember, your parents have many more years of experience in judging a person's character than you do. Your decision is clouded with emotion while there dislike is based on experience.

Have you thought about what the long range situations will be if your parents absolutely want nothing to do with him:
1) Your Wedding Day and Reception - no financial help from your family.

2) Birthdays & Family Get togethers - will your husband be invited?

3) The birth and Christening of your first child - will your family show up - who will pay for the party after the Christening?

It will be a cold existence for your husband and you will have to decide, once again, to choose - stay home with hubby or go to the event and enjoy your family ALONE!!!!

Your family is in your blood and have loved you all your life - this boyfriend does not.

Think about your situation and start thinking with your brain - not your heart. Romance does NOT last as long as blood.

Parents need at some point not to exercise control tactics and respect their offspring who have a history of good decision making. If you don't like who your child is with, maybe you failed miserably as a parent. Take responsibility for a failed upbringing.
