If your parents disapprove of your wedding, it can be overwhelming. Especially after a lot of years have been invested. These are are 5 things you can do.
When you’re in a relationship, it may be important to you that your family gets along with your partner. And that makes total sense! It’s awesome when our partners can be involved in multiple areas of our lives and hang out with the other people we care about.
If your parent (or his as the case may be) are not bias, you should listen to them and hear them out. If their reason for refusing to give their blessing is based on cultural, religious or tribal beliefs, these are the things to do if your parents disapprove of your wedding.
1. Listen to them
Even if you don’t like what your parents are saying about your choice, listen to them. Listening to your parents does not mean that you agree with what they say. You should give your parents the benefit of the doubt that their advice comes from a place of love and protection of you.
2. Invite an authority figure
Speak to someone they listen to to talk to them on your behalf. An authority figure can easily influence them and make them see reasons with you.
3. Bring in an objective third party
Consult an objective third party such as a licensed marriage counselor, or spiritual leader. A counselor can help facilitate the forming of a new family structure that includes your spouse.
4. Hire Parents
You read that right. Before you hire parents, be sure that on all grounds, your parents are wrong and you want to proceed with your decision. Give your parent enough time to change their mind. No parent wants to be replaced on their children’s big day.
5. Don’t think of Eloping
