i would continue dating him because its my feeling not my parents and i think if my parents ever felt that way they would surpress it and let me be because they know it my life and i can do what ever i wan't with it.

About this matter I don't really give a shit of what my parents think, since the "race" ain't really an important factor in a relationship.

Lol, but my dad is a racist, he said that I should NEVER come home with a German, Italian, and many more >.<

i would continue dating dat person you r with them not your parents and to say that person of the other race treats u better then the guy your parents want u with..i say its better to b happy and in love then to try to please you parents in that area cuz dat would b messed up...my parents could care less who i am with im blk by the way..i have liked a blk guy,spanish guy,white guy,and chinese guy..so it rly rly shouldnt matter as long as that person loves u..

Fortunately, My parents don't give a shit which is nice :). However, if they did care so much about "race", I'd still date the person because racism is just lame and as others have stated, they're not the ones dating said person, I am

That is very different in Asia. When you marry, you are also marrying his/her mother. Many Asians also try to keep the tradition of taking care of their parents when they get old. Unlike Americans and other westerners who leave their old and ill parents at nursing homes, many Asians prefer to look after them with care.

Why? Because your parents took care of you, fed you, and raised you. Any amount of money will not be enough to pay them for giving you a life.


I am always lost when I hear this. If I ever became a parent, if I got old I certainly wouldn't want my children to be looking after me and taking care of me. They have their own life to lead and may eventually have their own children. They should concentrate on looking after their own until they are ready to fly the nest. If a parent would ever also throw that towards you as an argument ("I took care of you" and all that jazz). Well if you didn't want to do it, why would you even have children...

When you get pregnant, you know that the rest of your life is pretty much dedicated to your children. You don't have kids as an insurance policy for when you get old and decrepit. Comes across as excessively selfish, and the one/or two person(s) in your life who 'should' be totally selfless towards you at least should be your parents. Unless it is entirely your choice to decide to take care of them (if their health gets to such a terrible stage) then it should never be forced upon like a 'debt'.

I'm free to date whoever i want.. It'll be a pity if my family don't give their blessings. But i'd still stand by my own decision *nods*

Well, at least you will not be the one with the big stomach screaming for help during delivery. People's opinions differ, ours obviously do. My opinion, and you got yours. Be happy with it!

One more thing that I should make clear of. I don't expect my children to take care of me, but I will take care of my parents even when they get old and senile.
