I am Hispanic, my wife is Egyptian and they didn't like me in the beginning because they thought I would get her pregnant and leave her, typical stereotype lol.
Anyways I have been married to my wife for three years now and now they like me I think since we are still together and will always be, but those first few months of being engaged and marriage were a nightmare.
Any one had the same obstacles?
Ruben, that is not fair, you are asking this question just to the men, you think women do not have such problems??
Yeah I know there are some guys whose mother or both parents have to approve of the girlfriend. Yeah I've known of some cases where the guy said "It will not work out, sorry but my mom doesn't like you"
My Mom in law decided not to acknowledge my existence.. for two years....after we were married ... Now she has to take my opinion on every thing that she does.. almost like she seeks my approval... fine turn of events.. don't you think.... but she is a fine woman who loves her only son to pieces!!!
...long time ago...a boyfriend asked me to convert to his religious beliefs...i didn't...we didn't marry...how's that...his family was in the way...but it didn't really matter; wasn't meant to happen....and i wouldn't do it anyway - now or then.....just me - you like it or you don't...as simple as that....
Ha! My parents wouldn't even recognize my marriage for the first ten years or so. I'm of Irish descent, and my husband was of Irish and German descent. In their eyes, he was a mutt. I told them not to complain--at least he was Catholic!

Do you think there would be less divorces if parents were able to choose mates for their children?If parents had a say in who their children married would the unions last longer and be more compatible?
