2 years later and my boyfriend hasn't told his parents about me? HELP!
My boyfriend and I have been together now for over 2 years.. We both have an immensly passionate, deep love for one another, we are like best friends. But the problem is that he is east indian and is very unsure how his parents will react to him being with a white-american girl [they may kick him out of the house, disown him, ect. ]. We are planning on getting married within the year or so, but he has STILL NOT told his parents that he is dating me, or even has a girlfriend, period.
We have argued about this topic MANY times, but he just keeps reassuring me with, "in time my love...when the time is right." But I cannot plan my future, if he doesn't take this step first. Furthermore, I am afraid of the consequence of telling them, and how it may effect our relationship with their racist, intolerant attitudes.
Both paths seem overly difficult. On one hand i can't take the secrecy and want our relationship to move to another level. But on the other hand, I don't want to run the risk of his parents tearing us apart with their backwards stigmas.
