My fiancé and I have been together for over five and a half years. His family has been beyond accepting since day one of our relationship. My parents initially were accepting, but then...seemingly out of the blue, turned sour in the early stages of our relationship. The situation has deteriorated over the years to the point brining up our relationship, especially with my mother, is beyond tumultuous. My fiancé is a wonderful man. He's a United States Marine, and an over all kind, giving, smart, compassionate man. My parents have NEVER been able to tell me why they so strongly dislike him. Their answer is just always "it's my opinion and that's the only explanation I need." My dilemma is this....we are getting married on the 27th of December come hell or high water. I'm about to graduate from college in December as well. I need to tell my parents this is happening next week. It just has to happen. I'm nervous about their reaction...it won't be pretty. Any suggestions? Has anyone had a similar situation? I am not backing down on my decision to marry the love of my life at this time. This is exactly what's right for me right now. Thank you in advance.
