Hopefully after you have that talk with them, it won't come down to that. There has to be a way to make them understand what they are doing to you. Your going to be married and what about one day if you have kids? How can your kids grow up in that situation?
I think that you should just lay it all out on the table...Maybe they don't realize what they are doing, ya know?
I'm sorry for all of this Drama you are having...But it sounds like your FI is a really good man.
Good luck with everything!!!!

If your parents can't accept him, (and from your post it doesn't seem that Marc has done ANYTHING for them to dis-like him) then maybe you need to consider not havng them in your life. That sounds harsh because they're your parents, but who needs toxic people in their life (no matter who they are)?!?! My FI has written his parents off because he's tired of being hurt and getting let down by them. Unfortunately, we can't choose who our parents are!!
Good luck girl!

if you need to cut them out, i say do it. it doesnt have to be forever. just for now because they are not understanding you are an individual with a life, feelings, goals, etc etc. perhaps some time away from them would make them realize that.

Tell them, not ask, that you are marrying FI and you are sick of the snide comments and that they are hurting you and if they don't stop it they will lose you.
I'm lucky I've had hellish fights with my parents over the years and even when I was making a complete arse of myself dad still stood behind me. At one point he even said look I'm not keen on FI but he's your choice and if thats what you want then fine.
You need to show them you are not a little girl anymore and won't take their crap. FI just had a mega bust up with his mother to the point where he doesn't even speak to his sister anymore lol She got the message after he said deal with it or i'm gone.
Dig deep you'll be able to stand up to them and if not i'll come over and kick their asses for you lol
