Relationships are about compromise.  This is something you and him will have to work out together and probably both will have to compromise a bit.

Why doesn’t he want to elope? There has to be a reason he doesn’t want to do this, just like you must have a reason for wanting to do it.

I only ask because my fiance originally wanted to elope, and this would have been perfect for him because he literally has no family and only a few close friends. I, on the other hand, have a HUGE family and lots of friends and my mother has health problems that wouldn’t allow her to travel to wherever we were eloping to.

So we talked about it and compromised. He understood that having my family there was very important to me.

Compromise is the answer!

My FH said there was no way he would ever be allowed to elope. But now we are planning a small destination elopement.

We compromised until we were blue in the face. But now we are going to “elope” with our parents, and siblings plus their husbands and children, and his grandma. 🙂 This way we both win. I get my elopement, and he doesn’t have to run off and not be able to share this moment with his family. Even though he comes from a huge family and we will still be getting told off by his aunts, and cousins. The day is about the two people making that commitment, not everyone else.
