I Wish Parents Were More Accepting...Today my boyfriend and I got into a bit of an argument over the phone. Lately we have been seriously discussing getting engaged and getting married soon. Which the engagement will probably occur the next time he comes home. The problem is that my parents arent exactly accepting of me getting married while I am in school or while im 19. That shouldnt be a problem since im 19 and can do what i want but for me it is. I really want them to accept my choices in life. Although that may never happen and I have started to accept that. I just feel like I have already spent enough time away from my boyfriend and I want to go live out there with him sooner than later. But since my parents arent excepting of it they have said that they will refuse to help with any of our wedding plans or anything along those lines. And my boyfriend as much as I love him is a bit of a control freak. He feels that he needs to wait awhile and save all of this money for our wedding and give me the beautiful wedding that I deserve. "A wedding for a princess", as he would say. Although I have told him for now I will settle for a JOP wedding. I dont need a big wedding right now when we can do it later. So we got to arguing on which is better for us. I just want him to see that I dont care how I get married the only thing that matters is who I am marrying. I just wish we could see eye to eye on this one. Its really sweet that he wants to do this for me but its really not what I want or need right now. Not being able to please my parents and arguing about this with him is stressing me out. I just wish my parents would accept I am getting married and be happy for me that way my man and I could afford to have a wedding. Good Lord, Does anyone else have parents who are un-accepting of their marriage at a young age or because they are in school? How can I talk to them and just make them realize this is truly what I want and there is no changing my mind?
