My Girlfriend's Parents Don't Approve Of MeRelationshipsMy Girlfriend's Parents Don't Approve Of Me<div class="ExternalClass70C3FFC2287D48C8BF958B7559D17E14"><p>​<span class="ms-rteFontFace-1 ms-rteFontSize-3 ms-rteThemeForeColor-2-4" style="">I fear today is the last day my girlfriend and I will be together. I treat her like a queen and give her all the love, affection, attention and cuddles she needs. She brought this up to her parents and still they told her she has to pick between her family or me, and if she picked me she would lose her family. Her family doesn't like how much money I make and they said my girlfriend would regret being with me. She had an ex a while ago in high school what was abusive and childish, I make her feel safe and loved beyond words.. I take care of her.. what do I do, or what does she do in this situation?  </span></p></div><div class="ExternalClassD1BD1B633A804A50BE069E95FD4037D8"><p><span class="ms-rteFontFace-1 ms-rteFontSize-3 ms-rteThemeForeColor-2-4" style="">What a difficult time this must be for both you and your girlfriend. Have you and your girlfriend talked with her parents together? What specifically are their concerns about your financial earnings? Maybe if the both of you sit down with her parents and listen to their concerns and express your own concerns you can both understand where each other is coming from better. As parents we only want what is best for our children.</span></p><p><span class="ms-rteFontFace-1 ms-rteFontSize-3 ms-rteThemeForeColor-2-4" style="">You have mentioned that you take care of your girlfriend. What does this mean exactly. Are you paying her bills? Are you making decisions for her? Is it possible that her parents are wanting her to become more independent and learn to take care of herself.</span></p><p><span class="ms-rteFontFace-1 ms-rteFontSize-3 ms-rteThemeForeColor-2-4" style="">We would encourage both you and your girlfriend to really think things out. Do not make any rash decisions that you both might regret in the end. Have open and honest communication with each other and with her parents. Do your own parents have any concerns about the relationship?  If so, have a conversation with them as well so you can understand what others may be seeing.</span></p><p><span class="ms-rteFontFace-1 ms-rteFontSize-3 ms-rteThemeForeColor-2-4" style="">​Amy</span></p></div>20
