My boyfriend and I have been together for 6 years and have two daughters. We have a healthy relationship and have both grown a lot since we've been together. We've had our challenges with him being unemployed twice while I was pregnant both times, he is an introvert and I'm more of an extrovert, and he is overcoming video game addictions. For these reasons, my family does not care for him and actually tried to say that they think he is abusive! Which is far from the truth. We've had those issues but he is so good to me and the girls, we communicate very open and honest, we can and do share everything, we make each other laugh and encourage each other and our house is full of love and respect for each other and God. I know as we grow we can have a wonderful life together. We plan to get married soon, but I know my family isn't thrilled about it since they see the negative over the positive. I know ultimately it's my life and my choice but it breaks my heart to not have my family's blessing. Have any of you experienced family who was not thrilled about your choice in DH? How do you "get over it"?
