- 6 years ago
Hello ladies, I am having a dilemma right now. I am 21 years old and my SO is 22. We have been together for about 6 years (since h.s) but our real serious relationship did not start until about 2 years ago. Well we recently got engaged and have decided to move in together since we both feel that we are ready for this. My mother, on the other hand, does not feel like this is a good idea. She states that I will not finish school if I move in with him and that this was not what she had planned for me. I moved out of my house in March of 2012 and have been on my own since then. I love my parents so much but she not supporting me is definitely taking a toll on me. I have been super stressed out and i feel as if i was betraying my parents. They truly have given me everything and much more and I love them so much but i dont know why they are acting as if i have done the ultimate mistake..
We are hispanic so in our culture woman should leave the house married, virgin and in my mom’s eyes, with a degree as well. I know i will finish school and after that we will get married but i dont know what to do to please my parents.. Anyone have any advice or similar situation?
