A good social position? Much money in cont? A nice house? A good work place? All parents want happines for theirs children, but are parents who don t want to push kids to marry with who parents want, or are parents who really insist to take somebody with money, house... When you decided to marry your parents push you to choice a "good" person, or let you to choice who you love, no matter what?

Actually, I married who I wanted to marry despite what my parents thought. They actually wanted me to marry someone who worked steady and would treat me decent and help out. I think they wanted me to be happy. I had some things to learn...growing up to do....I think they were disappointed in my choices but I learned. they didn't have to say "i told you so"...I figured it out. I have no regrets at all.

i am married for 6 years with a person who my family does not want. they want someone who works and abroad who is certified nurse. they all taked to me specially when i anounced them that iw ill soon get married. they want me to marry someone i dont love. the girl they are pushing to me is a person who has a crush on me. i know they are pushing because of money. i would marry the person they like for me IF i love her but i dont so i choose someone i love and now i am happy with her. of course we have our ups and downs but i am happy we are both happy.

Hello icesmile, naturally all parents want the best for their offspring so will encourage them to marry for a good social position, a nice house, a good job and much money. I think though that most would prefer they had much money in the bank rather than in a container but that is just my own view. Love should not at all be encouraged to come into the equation or one could end up being loveless and poor.

My parents let my sister and I make our own decisions in marriage, and neither of us married guys with a lot of money. We both would rather marry for love, than for money, and that is exactly what we did. We get along very well in our own homes, and we both live relatively modest lifestyles, due to our incomes. We are very happy, and that is all that matters.
