@saida27:  I am so sorry to hear all of this.  It’s really a shame…your sister is busy with her house and kid?  I’m sorry, but a lot of people have new houses or babies, but they still show support. 

I hope you don’t feel ashamed or regret for any of this, because you’re doing the right thing.  Follow your heart!  Those who really care for you and your well being will be there on that day to support you BOTH.

If your mother can’t accept that, then it’s more likely than not she never will.

I’m really sorry for your situation. Hopefully your mom will see that you are happy. If she loves you and wants what’s best for you, she will see that that is what you are doing by getting married to a man you have been dating for 6 years. You def. haven’t rushed into a relationship. She should be proud of you.

If they don’t come around then they will have to live with that guilt for the rest of their lives. You, however, will be marrying an amazing man that loves you as much as you love him.

@saida27:  I’m sorry you’re not getting the support you need during this time that’s supposed to be so special for you. I know what you’re going through with the whole pleasing the family stuff. Our culture is like that too where you have to pick the perfect person your parents want with the perfect job, income, family status, etc. But at the end of the day it’s your life not theirs. If this man makes you happier than you’ve ever been, he treats you better than anyone, makes you feel good about yourself, then that’s what you need to know. I hope you can be strong and stand for your man if he makes you feel all these things because that’s how you know he’s a good one. 

I feel like sometimes parents can’t see past their beliefs and just see that their child is happier than ever, because that’s what’s most important in this world. Life is way too  short to be worrying about pleasing others. I wish you the best and I hope you have a wonderful marriage 🙂
