I am in the best relationship with a girl I've ever had. Basically been hangin out almost every day since we met, doin all sorts of fun stuff together. We get along excellent, she is absolutely beautiful, plenty of sex, she doesnt flake and isnt a gold digger. My parents are very strict and strongly discouraged me dating in highschool, I got annoyed arguing with them so I just gave in and didnt bother because it wasn't worth it to me. Now they give me a hard time every time I hang out with her. My mom in particular talks bad about the girl and keeps pointing out things to disqualify her and frankly none of it is relevant anyways. My mom nitpicks everything I have come to learn so no matter who i bring whom, she will find stuff about them To me it seems worth it to stand up for myself and my needs as a human being. I routinely got yelled at after the girl left and she is very polite and friendly to my parents. Well. I put up with it for the end of the summer and now I am in college. The girl still lives back at home. She wanted to come visit me for a few days. Her parents were willing to let her go but they called my mom to make sure it was alright and she told them that it was unacceptable. I called my mom to tell her that I was offended by what she said and it ended up in a terrible argument and now I haven't talked to my mom in a week. What should I do? I am willling to do just about whatever it takes to get my parents to get over the fact that I will date girls if I want to and there's nothing they can do. I am a lot happier in life having a companion of this sort and I wouldn't trade it for anything.
