That is the question of the day! :)
(I'm also genuinely curious.)
My mom and Grandmommy despise my husband. With a passion. Because he's not Daddy Warbucks, Mr. Moneybags, loaded...(I hope y'all get the picture!)
We obviously haven't let their hatred bother us. We've been together for 17 years, married for almost 16. I've given my mom 5 grandkids!! The only grandkids she will have. I'm an only child.
He loves me and the kids. We aren't hurting for anything. Well, not now at least. Of course there's been rough years *much to my family's happiness*, and not so rough years. (Much to my family's dismay.)
However, we have each other, for better or worse...etc. I wouldn't change that.
my mom and dad love my dh. he is the only person i have ever dated that my parents liked.
i guess it depends on how much i loved the guy and how he treated me on if i cared or not. if my parents hated my DH i wouldn't care because he treats me good and is a great person and i love him
As much as I love my parents, I would stay with SO & hope that they eventually got to know him & would come around. My parents adore SO. He is an amazing man & takes such good care of his family.
He does kind of have an odd since of humor, he reminds me of my step dad in that aspect. A lot of people don't get it, but I do, my parents do. Its all good. Except for everyone else in my family. My aunt I think just doesn't think anyone is good enough for me & my uncle is just an asshole. SO made a joke while I was in labor, Uncle took it the wrong way & threatened to kick his ass. While I'm in labor with our first child. Sorry Uncle, you take your negativity elsewhere.
My mother hated my dh (and by virtue disliked (not didn't love) my sons) for 17 of our almost 23 yr marriage.
I don't know what made her "change" her mind. We were in a super bad spot, I was ready to cut ties. I think it was my aunt, (her sister).
Oh-and I've stayed with him. (even when my mother announced her and my dad took bets on how long I'd stay with him).
All the bullshit my parents have pulled, dh has never held a grudge. He's wonderful!!
I wouldnt let what my Dad thought bother me and I wouldnt turn my back on him either. I would simply tell him to keep his opinions to himself.
