@Grizz: that’s kind of very presumptuous.

just because OP is attempting to figure out if and how she can make a relationship work with her SO doesn’t make her a bad mother. she came here for advice and support; we have no right to judge her for actions she hasn’t even made. this is a tough situation for anyone to be in. it’s disappointing to see so many rude implications being made.

@Mrs. Harmony: i know you’ve discussed this with him, but your SO needs to know that if he’s ever going to be apart of your family, he needs to lay down the law with his parents now.

Oh my goodness, you poor thing!! You totally did the right thing, good for you!

It’s not the same situation, but I can relate and I know how you’re feeling. When I was in college I dated a guy for a year whose family was extremely religious (catholic). I am episcopalian but willing to raise our kids in the catholic church and apparently that was not good enough for them. They were also making other trivial comments to him because he told me at one point that I was too quiet around them and should speak up and spend more time with them. I said the same thing you did, that I don’t audition and I was actually appalled that he would tell me how to change myself around them.

I broke it off with him a few months later when it was clear that they would not accept me and he was going to take their side. Strangely enough he wanted to stay together which I will never understand, but I was not willing to do that.

Stay strong, good luck!!
