FI parents don't know we're engaged.
Posted 09 September 2009 - 01:22 PM
Background: I'm Korean and they don't like the fact that our cultures aren't the same.
Kicker: He's CHINESE!!! It's not like a world of a difference between the Korean culture and the chinese culture. Not a race issue a culture difference.
So the one thing that I can't change about myself they have a problem with. They always agree that I'm a good person and that I'm a professional so everything is great other than the fact that I'm korean.
Super depressed and frankly very angry...

I guess the bright side of all of this is that FI wants to marry you regardless of what the parents say or think. I think he needs to step up and stand up for you though. Depending on how he grew up that may be more difficult than it sounds-but in the long run it's going to have to happen at some point. You're walking a fine line, on one hand you don't want to force him to do anything in a way that makes him resent you. But, on the other hand you don't want to give him the idea that it's ok to hide your relationship and give in to his parents when they disapprove. This creates a whole mess down the road, especially if you start a family.
Good luck, and no matter what keep the communication between you and FI going-in the end it's the relationship the two of you have that matters most.
