Because its not their decision. I fell in love with him and he with me and thats it. We will be living with each other (hopefully) the rest of their lives. The parents have to decide whats more important, theit child's happones or their snobbery?

Yes, I would, if I know their reasons for disapproval are shallow, and if I myself am very sure I am in love and am ready to face the trials of marriage. Life is a gamble, so is marriage. Btw, thank you very much for your comments/suggestions regarding cramps, my friend. God bless ...

My parents would never say the disapproved of anyone. It is not their place to judge. The only thing my mother said to me once was, "Marry someone like your father." Well, there are no more men in the world like that. I know my parents have thoughts about the spouses of their kids, but they have never said they shouldn't marry them. The let their children make their own mistakes, even if it means marrying someone and ending up in divorce later.

I married someone no one in my family approved of, but I'm not sure I'm the right example you're looking for. My family was never good to me, and my husband is, so it was pretty much a no-brainer choice for me. In fact, even though some people don't like him, my husband has been the best thing that ever happened to my family relationship. He has helped me conquer both my fear of them and my anger towards them, and now I can be kind to them without letting them hurt me.
