@rachie576:  Hello. I was in a similar situation when my husband and I first got together. I am Dominican and he’s Polish. I wasn’t sure how both sides of the family would react. I think I was even more nervous because Polish people usually do not mix with another race. But, when I met my husband’s family, they got to know me and now they love me. At first my father wasn’t too happy at the fact that my husband is Polish, but now everything is ok. He’s been slowly accepting it. He sees that my husband is a great man. I’m sure everything will turn out fine for you. Maybe at first your grandparents won’t agree with it but i’m sure that as times go by they will see how he truly is and hopefully learn to accept him. It is a nerve wrecking situation but the only thing you can both do is think positive. In the end all that matters is that you both love each other and want to be together. Don’t let family get in the way of your relationship. Good Luck!

@rachie576:  I understand completely where you are coming from with this. That’s exactly how my father is. He always wanted me to put his feelings and opinions before mine. He actually was against my husband and I to get married but we got married anyway and now he just accepts it. Follow your heart. In the end, it’ll be all worth it.
