Tug a war between boyfriend and family

I am 28 years old with a college education and my dream job. I make good money and should be set. Yet I have moved back home to take over the house payment for my parents after my father lost his job. I live here with my sister and take care of my 17 year old brother while my parents moved out to new area where my dad has a new job. Not making the same money he was before. I have a boyfriend who I am engaged to that has also had a rough time and lost his job, he is now working but his car is broken so I see him several times a week and he occasionally come home with me. He helps with the ranch but has a history that my parents don't approve of. He isn't rude but he wouldk rather leave then have my parents make smart remarks to him. They tell me what I can do and what I can't with the house and make me not see him when they can. He thinks that they are controlling me and my parents think he is controlling me. I love him and I love my family. I am very torn.
