My boyfriend and I have been dating for over 2 years. We are very close and have lived together for a little under the past year.
However, I can't seem to get past the issues I have with his parents. His parents have 3 children (including my boyfriend) and do drugs, deal drugs, and steal, among other things.. I can't get past the fact that they have raised their children in such a bad environment. My boyfriend has never done any of these things, and agrees with me in that they are wrong. We have gotten in many fights over his parents, because I just don't feel comfortable around them or being in their house. Fights about his parents always seem to come up, and although my boyfriend thinks how they behave is inappropriate, he often defends them and makes excuses for them. I understand that he is going to feel like he has to defend them because they're his family - but this can get annoying especially when I get so angry that he (and his siblings) have had to live through a tough childhood.
I love him so much but I don't think I can ever get past the issues I have with his parents.. He has already said it is ok that I don't visit his parents much, but his family is obviously always going to be a part of his life. This is in the future, but if we had kids together, I wouldn't want them around his parents.
