My Parents And My Boyfriend Hate Each Other – Daily Dilemma
The "Daily Dilemma" on the Sean and Richie Show is featured every weekday morning at 6:40am. We and the listeners take on someone's problems and try to offer different perspectives. Now, these don't have to be huge problems- it could just be something bothering you or a friend, or it could be some little thing you and another just can't agree on. If you have a dilemma to share we'd love to hear it just e-mail us here at the show.
Here is today's dilemma:
My boyfriend, of 12 years hates my parents. I'm pretty sure that is why we are not married.
When we started dating there was a lot of trouble with my parents accepting him, I will just say we come from different worlds. Yes, it was wrong on their part and I truly believe that if they could have taken those first years back maybe they would. However knowing my parents I can tell you , they would never ever say that to him.
He on the other hand has always held a grudge and never comes to any family functions or places he knows they will be. As I am both in love with him, and very close to my family, this is killing me. I have found a way to get by with just visiting them on my own, but I'm not a young woman and to be honest this is just not where I thought I'd be at this point in my life.
Is there any way to get him Or them to try harder? Do I just give up and take it for what it is, clearly I just don't want to lose either of them in my life. Am I crazy for thinking that maybe they should all love me a little more than they hate each other?
