You might be emotionally devastated if you find out that your parents condemn your marriage and consider your partner to be inappropriate for you.
You have a close relationship with your parents, and you love your partner so much that you don't want to break his or her heart.
If your parents express an unfavorable opinion about the person you want to live with for the rest of your life, below are the things you need to do.
1. Ask Them What They See
Try to have an intimate conversation with your parents about what they've seen in your partner.
Your parents have probably seen something that you have not seen. Ask them to be very sincere about it.
However, if they tell you they've not seen anything, they just don't like your partner.
2. Tell Them What You See
Don't get angry with your parents. You might need to start telling them favorable things you know about your partner.
Tell them about your partner's achievements, family, and academic background. Tell them about how your partner has helped or supported you.
Give them the reasons why you have chosen to marry him or her.
3. Give Them Assurance
Make some declarations that will inspire full confidence in them towards your partner.
They may need you to persuade them that the person you want to marry won't be dangerous to your life.
They may have disapproved of your marriage because they are not certain about your safety.
4. Tell Your Partner About It
You need to tell your partner about it. Maybe there are some things your partner needs to change about his or her character.
5. Inform Your Parents About Your Partner
Try to create several occasions when your partner meets with your parents. They can both sit down and have a long conversation.
They can be free to ask your partner questions, and your partner can have the opportunity to tell them about his or her personal life.
6. Postpone Your Wedding
This is not the time to rush your wedding.
Give yourself some time to build a strong relationship between your partner and your parents.
Wait for some time to see how things will turn out.
7. Things You Need To Avoid
Don't distance yourself from your parents, and don't let your parents make you distant from your partner.
