If your mother didn’t approve of your gf/bf, what would you do? Continue to date without her approval or end it?

Why would you need your mother’s “approval” to date someone as an adult? Is she gonna take your phone privileges away or something?

What is the reason of the disapproval?

You’re an adult. Your parents can’t control you anymore.

I not only continued to date her, I then went and married her. Still the best decision of my life 12 years later. Parents and the rest of my family never came around. Their loss.

MIL doesn’t approve of me but we are still married and now have a daughter. If you look at her profile - in her 4th marriage (probably won’t be the last), multiple baby daddies, terrible health because of her own doings, and tons of credit card debt. I think I’ll live without her approval, lol.

My parents doesn’t approve of my boyfriend but I’m still with him 4 years later, because their reasoning is very superficial. If they ever had some legitimate concerns, I would think about what they had to say and re-evaluate my relationship because I value my parents’ opinions (for the most part)

I think my parents have my best interests in mind and if they didn’t like them I would hear them out and watch out for the signs they say. And I think they’ve been right every time and could see what you can’t see in the situation!

Dump them

Nah, any time my mom has said anything about the people im seeing and I ignored it, they turned out to have some HUGE red flag attached to them that I was too naive to see (eg of past relationships: I was a rebound, one was toxic, another was self centered, and one took too many drugs to keep mental stable). She usually doesn’t say anything unless there seems to be something fishy. I get second opinions from my siblings/friends tho

like

Depends on how valuable your moms opinions are in your life.

Depends. Sometimes your mom can see red flags in your partner that you are not noticing. Sometimes your mom can attempt to control you and you finding a good partner means that you are breaking away from the bond and she doesn’t want to let you go. I’ve seen both situations happen.

Of all the approvals I desire in the world, my mother’s is the least of them. I’d continue.

My mom is a pretty good judge of character, so I’d want to hear her out and keep an eye out for red flags moving forward.

If you're my partner and you have to get approval from your mom, I'll just end it for you. 🚩🚩
