I love my parents and i also love my husand. But my parents do not accept him because they think i left the house because of him. I dont know what to do with that. If my parents want to see my son, my husband cannot come with me, he has to stay home alone till i come back. I hate it.

My husband had that situation when he married me. His family had his life all planned out for him and well....that was not HIS plan for his life. They gave him a hard time and for awhile we only saw his family on holidays. But now it's been three years and we have a baby and another one on the way and they missed out on the early months with the baby and they have decided that being a part of our son's life is worth them making the effort to get to know me and be nice. Hang in there. There is hope.

Slowly try to convince your parents to accept your hubby.Try to boost your hubby's image in your parent's mind.

They told me that in the beginning, because he had his hair long but he kept nice and clean. And i told him that is his persona and i was not going to tell him to cut it off, because that has to come from him. Now he has cut it off, because he wants too and love him regarless. But i know that my parents will come up with anothe excuse, eventually.

your parents need to learn to respect yoru husband and you should not be forced to choose between the two. You should stand your ground with your parents and tell them that you three are a family and you have to be accepted as such.

You mentioned on another posts that you tow have been a couple for awhile and have been married a few months. How did they treat him before he was your husband?

They did not want to believe that he was the father of my son. They just did not want to even think of him. It just makes me feel so bad because he has not even talked bad about them, after all the negativity towads him.
