What To Do...?

So I am have been going out with my man for almost 5 years now and we got engaged in august. My family does not like that I got engaged to him so I know they will not like that I get married to him. He is at basic training right now and before he left we planned that as soon as he gets a chance we are going to get married. Nothing big at all just going to the court house getting the paper work. I am still in college and I know my family wants me to stay in school. As do I. So I am just in need of advice to talk to my family about this. I hate talking to them because they just blow up in my face. I don't want to disrespect them of just run off but I would love it if they would back me up! What do you think I should do?

I think you should follow your heart. I had a court house wedding and his family wasn't too thrilled but they came around. DO NOT do what we did and elope. We didn't tell anyone until after the fact. If I could change one thing...I would explain before hand and tell them this is something you are doing and if they love you and care for you then they should put aside their feelings and come witness your day. Be honest. I wish you the best of luck!!!!
