I always thought my parents liked my boyfriend, but now we’re engaged they say he’s not good enough for me and anyway we’re too young to get married (we’re both in our 20s).
Queenie, I thought they would be happy for me. What is their problem?—Unhappy fiancée
Your parents may be afraid they are going to lose you if/when you get married. Perhaps a trusted family member or friend can find out what (if any) real objections they have to your getting married, and whether their objections have any validity.
I hope in the end they will be happy for you and welcome your new husband into the family.
