It like our parents see what we do not see as youngsters and it pertinent we consult them concerning our life partner, do you think we should listen no matter what our partner might mean to us or we should just move ahead with our partners. What do you think?

I will listen to their advice of course because they know what is best for me but if they want me to marry a guy whom I don't love, then I will not listen to them.

It depends. If we love our partner we should stay with him/her, no matter what.

@Berrygal Yes. This can happen. We don't see anything bad when we are in love. Then we should listen to our parent's advice because they have good intentions.

@Berrygal Some times the parents are right. Some times the parents is wrong. It's case to case basis. You need to be smart to analyze the situation.

@Berrygal Your partner will try his best to make your parents satisfied, otherwise he will not care about their feelings and your situation. That is not true love.

for me, even if that person means so much of you but part of u is still undecided.. well, better to listen to your parents.. and if your still too young it's a must to listen to your parents...

We should consider their opinions but give priority to our choice. Actually,I woulds suggest we should find someone who can impress you as well as your parents.

it differs from situation to the situation sometimes parents could be wrong in selecting a life partner for you sometimes they could right, always listen to your inner instinct it's you who has to live a life with your life partner and not parents

No you're the person who has to live with your partner not your parents. I reckon parents need to let their kids make their own mistakes and just be there if it all falls apart! Often the partner a parent dislikes is actually the right one in the end. My parents weren't keen on my first serious partner at the beginning but a few years on he was like a son to them. They were devastated when we grew apart and split up but he's still one of my best friends.

No, we should not listen to anyone. First of all, you will not be able to blame your parents for your choice if you will have problems with your life partner. Second, parents will never be involved in such topics as intimacy with this person, so it is only your responsibility to use your own head and make a decision. The same thing is with the divorce - only you must decide whether to divorce or keep the family.
