Do what makes you happy. they may not be over the moon now – they might be worried your marriage might follow the same pattern as the first – and remember your father is divorced too!


in the long run, when they see how happy you are, they’ll be proud of you. Remember you might not always agree with their choices either, but that wouldn’t stop them from making them. 


Enjoy your time with your SO, sounds like you had a rough few years before – take it easy!

@KaylaFromAR: Yes, do what makes you happy. You can’t live your life in the shadow of always wanting your parents’ approval. (Especially in your case, when doing so has led to problems in the past).
