My boyfriend and I are going ring shopping tomorrow and I am elated, however I am dreading telling my parents who are not quite happy with my choice. I am 35 and he is 26, I am jewish and he is from south america (been here 6 years). We are in love and have been together 2 years, have dogs together and live together and are ready. My parents are a hollywood family and the social circle is extremely judgemental and shallow. He hasn’t spent much time with my family because he is painfully shy and self conscious about his accent. It all makes me very anxious and upset. I am so excited about planning the big day but also dreading all the gossip. I wish I didn’t care what everyone thought but I do…not enough to not marry him though. Any advice from those with disapproving parents or people from two different world would be great?
Just feels good to get it all off my chest. Thanks for listening
