I am in serious need of advice,opinions ect.I will try to be as brief as possible.I Have been in a relationship with a wonderful man for 11+ years now.It started when we were both teens and now well into adulthood.At first,we had a long distance relationship but he has now moved near me to further our relationship and is getting a great education too.Problem we're having is with his parents.They have hated me from the start and it's only getting worse.The reason they hate me,and I've heard this myself,is that I'm not Catholic,I'm too tall,too overweight,didn't go to college and have a disability therefor I am not a good person.
I have tried so hard to become friends with his Mother and she'll be so nice when speaking directly to me,then turn around and say such hurtful things to him,about me.He is going on 26,we're both adults and both very much in love but this is really starting to affect him.Tonight,I overheard a conversation between the two of them,it hurt me deeply.She was saying that I am not going to have kids because I'm disabled and not able to care for them(Which isn't true).His dad is the same way and will not listen to his Son at all when it comes to me.He(the dad)is trying to get him(my love)to go find other"girls",and it simply sickens my love to hear about this.
She is constantly talking about others who are different and gossiping,crazy stuff to hear and I can't imagine that this is what the Catholic faith teaches?I've attended The Church of Christ most of my life,and those are certainly not things that are taught.My Love is also Catholic and he doesn't agree with that behavior either so I hope it is just her and not OK to do as a Catholic Christian?
My love gets call through the day and it is always negative about me and it really is getting to him.I sometimes feel like he takes his frustration out on me..This makes me so sad and I really don't know what to do or where to turn.We pray about the situation,but seems they will never accept us and will spend the rest of their days thinking of ways to make him miserable...What else can we do?Ending our relationship is not an option.We are deeply in Love and plan on our future together,but as soon as the next call comes in from his parents,he gets depressed and seems to shut down and doesn't want to deal with it at all...I suppose he doesn't know how to deal with it,or stop it?I didn't know where else to turn so I thought I'd give you all a try...Thanks so much for listening and any advice or comments would be greatly appreciated!
