@childofthe1980s:  Good luck!  It’s hard jumping into the adult world, so in the US we tend to do it a bit slower. One foot at a time. But now that your getting married, it’s time to jump in totally with both feet!

 I think you will feel much better once you have cut the cord from the parents and can live indepently as a couple – in fact I know you will. It’s a great feeling!  Don’t be scared, or worry, you will be so happy.  Taking your life into your own hands has major rewards.

Your parents have to accept you being an adult woman, they will survive, they are just being pulled along kicking and screaming. (The jewish parents I know hold on to their babies pretty darn tight! They love them dearly, but it can be suffocating if you don’t stand up for yourself.)

Best of luck to you and your FI.

@childofthe1980s:  your decision is reasonable and I’m glad sum of us bees could help u. I think it’s a combination of everyone finding their new roles in your life. standing up to them won’t b easy as u love them but it is for the best. You can give them the respect they deserve without having to bend to their every whim. Good luck OP!
