  • My parents met my husband at our wedding! I don't think they were really happy about it, but we have been married for 23 years. As soon as my dad found out that my husband was law enforcement, then he loved him. My mom, she loves whoever we love. Only if the relationship ends does she voice her opinion.

  • I don't think they have even though they pretend like they do. Because I almost left him once and that's when they told me how they really felt about him.

  • I guess so. They were happy I didn't end up with my ex, lol, and they've known my husband since we were 12 - have always known we had feelings for each other - and they know he'll take care of me and our child, that he's a hard worker and reliable, so I guess they're pleased that he's the one I ended up with.

  • My mother never had a say....considering she never married! Besides, I was 32 and my husband was 38 (both living independently and financially secure in our own right) when we both said "I Do" for the first (and only) time (and neither of us had children from previous relationships)...so she wouldn't have had any say that mattered, even if she DID object, as she would have been the hypocrite!!! :o)

  • My mother thought it was just a phase & was okay with it as long as I didn't tell my stepfather, my stepfather & I didn't talk for years because of it.... (my hubby is older then me & was a friend of the family) & my real father didn't really have much to say about it. As I first met him two weeks before I was due to get married.. He likes my husband though...

  • LOL Hell no. They HATED my husband. It caused major issues in our family and we barely spoke for the first three years of our marriage. We're *ok* now, but I know they still gossip about us even now.

  • When I met my SO, I was actually in a relationship. I broke up with my bf because he was dragging me down and because I fell for my now SO. My mom met him and actually thought he was a ghetto thug because his hat was somewhat tilted. lol. Then 1 month after us being together, I ended up pregnant. She learned to like and respect him because he didn't leave me, he stayed with me through everything. They disagree on a lot of things, but I guess its a love-hate relationship for now lol. We have been together almost 2 years now.

  • My mother tried to talk me out of marrying him the night before my wedding... And most of them have tried to talk me in to leaving him at least a few times since... Nearly 5 years in they still aren't his biggest fans.
