Lesson learned not to share what you are thinking and feeling about your partner to your family and friends. Long after you forgive him they will remember. That is normal. Yes, I would marry someone that my family didn't approve of. But remember that every action that you have, good or bad, has consequences. So if they end up breaking it off with you because they don't want to stand by and watch you make a mistake, in their opinion, you have to be prepared for that. You can always say, "I'll keep the door open and would love to have you part of my life." But that is about all you can do. You cannot control how other people think and feel. Do what you think is best for you and your son. Do respect that others may not think, feel, and respond in kind. If if means loosing your family - then that risk is one that you have to decide if it is worth it or not. There are just no guarantees in life.
