How would you tell them about it?

How would you tell your parents you want to move in with your boyfriend/girlfriend and get married after a year or so, considering they don't totally agree with your relationship? Would you take their opinion into account although you are completely sure about your love for him/her and viceversa? Would anything/anyone else matter except for you two?

What they think would definitely matter to me. Why is it that they don't like this relationship? I would definitely sit down and talk to them and find out what is going on with them. And once you get this resolved I say move in with this person and get going with your life.

believe me, there's nothing to talk about anymore. i've tried and tried and i still couldn't make them understand. apparently they forgot how they were whent they were young. the only thing that buzzes them is the regret i haven't found some kind of a future doctor, r lawyer or something... it's just a matter of prejudice...

I did this back in August. i was with a guy for almost three years and we decided to move in together. My parents kept questioning my decision but they supported me if it was really what I wanted. We moved in and now he is in the process of moving out. I love him but I think I should have lived on my own before moving in with him. I don't think he was ready and I don't think we as a couple were ready. Although we may hate our parent's input at times, most of the time they are correct!

I don't think people shoudl live together before marriage BUT if you both feel stongly to doing this then kindly tell them what you going to do. Be sure to tell them not ask them. And do it.
