Wow... I'm not sure quit how to comment on that. You already know the 10 yrs in jail is not a good thing or you wouldn't have kept that info from your parents. You do know that they will find out and its not going to be good.

3 months and already met your kid too. IDK I didn't let anyone meet my kids until I knew for sure we were going to be more than casual daters.

One requirement is history. Just getting out of jail after 10 years is a no brain er. Why don't your parents know that he was in prison for burglary? 10 years is a long time for a burglary sentence. Don't take his word for "what he was charged with". Look it up for yourself.

10 YEARS in prison is a SERIOUS sentence. 

did you google records to confirm what he said he did? i know i would. 

you'd think you'd remember what he said he went in for. 3 months with this guy is not enough time. take it very, very slow.

Take off the rose colored glasses and look at it if you had a daughter bringing home a guy that was in prison for 10 years. And remember. He was in PRISON. Not jail. You don't go to jail for 10 years for burglary.

I was going for a background check on him but didn't have the money and he did say because he didn't stop the other guy he was with from hurting innocent people is whyhe served 10 years and he knows if he touch's any of my kids he is as good as dead and the funny thing is my dad knows his whole side of the family already

Unless he lost touch with the whole side of his family your father should know that he was in prison and pretty much the whole story about it.

If it bothers you that your parents are negative about men you are interested in  it's just because they are parents and they just care and want someone who is better for you. (Not that it means he can't change).

I'm not sure how you know someone is 'the one'.

I think you need to take a step back and slow things down a little. Letting anyone around your kids so soon isn't a good idea.
