There's no way that anyone's parents could dislike me.
So I don't think I understand the question fully hahaha!

I might stay with the person if they didn't let their family's feelings get between us, if I can just not have anything to do with his family. I wouldn't make my husband estrange his family, but I would make the rule that I don't have to see or talk to them if I don't want to. For example, if I had just given birth and family wanted to see the baby, they wouldn't be allowed in the room with me. They can wait to meet the baby until there's a time where I don't have to be there. I would send my theoretical children and husband off to family gatherings, but I wouldn't go.

Tough it out. It'll probably happen anyway if I were to tie the knot with my current boyfriend. His mother will probably like me; his father will probably hate my guts. But such is life.

It's not like I'm dating the in laws...so who cares.

Tough it out all the way because I'm sure they'll warm to you (and/or vice versa) eventually once they realise that you're serious about their son/daughter and are in it for the long haul

Been with my girl for 5.5 years, took 4 years for her parents to warm up to me. Every other Mom loves me, I still exchange emails with my ex girlfriends mothers from high school... Having 3000 miles between the parents means that I didn't really have to deal with them but It also took longer for them to get to know me.

My partner and I had trouble with her parents being inconsistent for years. They would treat her like a child sometimes and an adult when it suited them. (She didn't really have any freedom until college. I was more or less autonomous by first year of high school). I can empathize with her parents to an extent though. She grew up in a rough neighborhood and was the oldest. I was the youngest and more or less raised as a single child.

Relationships take effort and it is always up to people to determine what is worth the effort.

I encourage everyone to be cautious with loans between family members. Parent Plus loans from College are a big burden to my GF right now and are putting stress on her relationship with her mother.

I have enough tenacity and drive to make situations change into My favor....EVENTUALLY. They may hate Me, but if I "kill" them metaphorically and continuously with kindness, they will bend to the wills of Love. <3

Again, EVENTUALLY....!

is it best to break up.

Stay together and estrange the family obviously.

I have never been one to let family interfere with my love life... so I would expect the same from my partner. If he's too attached to his family... then obviously there's a problem.

if you can break up, then you don't love him/her enough to marry him/her.
