A little. You expect them to not to take things the wrong way, but you are not willing to discuss your relationship with them. I think you really need to open up to them more. They only want what is best for you and they will never fully understand until you tell them you are happy and this is what you want. Communication is very important in any relationship, especially with one’s parents.

No. I don’t know what your disability is but I think your Fi is right in this case. You need to have some sense of security and freedom. Being independent and working are all positive things and important for you! Dad is probably just being overprotective.

Parents have a habit of being ‘protective’ towards their children and espcially if they are not always in receipt of the full information!..

Your parents may never be in full agreement with who is ‘Perfect’ for you.. but at the end of the day it is YOU that has to live with him not them. 

Perhaps it is time to open up a little to then about your relationship and why it is so perfect for you.. 🙂

I agree with your FI in this situation.  My parents and I don’t communicate about my relationship based on my dad’s dislike of my prior FI.  So I don’t blame you for feeling like your relationship is personal and not talking about it.  I think your dad is definitely being over-protective and I hope that over time he can see how great your FI is for you!
