Today, I found out the reason my boyfriend dumped me was because his parents don't like the fact that I go to a prestigious university. However, they're completely accepting of the drunken slob who's dating their daughter. FML

That's pretty much what his parents were saying. They knew OP would get dissatisfied with that loser (and were perhaps worried you would cheat on him, divorce him, etc.).

all the better for you even if you had feelings for the guy. if the parents are stupid enough to let the trashy people into their family, then you're better off not being involved with any of them in any way. it's a win situation for you, just gotta look at it a different way :)

I'm going to assume this is more sexist than any other form of discrimination... they figure if she is too "edumacated" she might not follow the family tradition of being barefoot and pregnant until she hits menopause...


What does liberal vs. conservative have to do with this? I mean, I suppose if you hadn't used up all your stunning eloquence on 'Ohhh, liberals', you could have expounded on your point.

It's OK though. After that masterful rhetoric, you're probably tired. My liberal death panels-- er, I mean, free health-care behind this door! Come find out why you're so tired and get a free sterilization to boot!

the boyfriend has a sister, and the sister is dating a drunk. The parents accept the drunk, but not the OP, cause shes going to a good school. make sense now?


Why does someone deserve it for being in England? This could easily have happened anywhere.. And the chances are, that as OP is of university age, it makes so much more sense for them to go to a British university rather than anywhere else.
