I deal with it everyday..im mixed ( american indian, african american and german) my Fiance is itailan.

His family is VERYYYYY traditional, besides me being colored im not catholic which doenst go well with the family.

However we get thru it like this : we love each other

 

He told his family quite simply hes happy with me and if they love him they will love me…. I will have to say 95% of them are fine with the fact that we are getting married once they got to know me.  His family even now asks for me to cook and cant wait for me to learn the family recipes!

 As much as you may love your family, they arent the ones that you have to lay with at night. Love sees no color, be happy and true to those you love, and embrace your differences!

I went through this. My Fiance is Indian and i’m filipino and his parents did not like me from the beginning because of this cultural difference. When I was around them for family events his father would blatantly ignore me and argue with my Fiance about us dating. It came to the point where Fiance and his father didn’t talk for almost 2 years b/c of me. After we got engaged though, things changed and his family has definitely opened up and welcomed me like a daughter. I’m glad they had a change of heart but honestly i don’t think i can EVER forget the way they disrespected me in the beginning. I’m just lucky I know my Fiance will back me up no matter what.

I think you should just wait it out because I’m sure your father will come around…he just needs time. Good luck!
