That's really not an excuse. There are plenty of old people who are perfectly accepting of things like homosexuality, single parents, different religions, cultures, races and lifestyles. If they can manage, so can anyone else in their generation. Being old and having grown up with different values does NOT mean you should get away with being stubborn and refusing to change with the times. They didn't enter a time machine and woke up in a radically different world, they had just as much time to adjust as everyone else did.
They can believe Op would be better off married, but telling her this is the problem. I was not aware my grandmother was super racist in her younger years until she died and I read through her diaries. She changed with the times, or at the very least learned to keep her tongue. If my grandmother can do it, these people can appreciate their granddaughter is loving enough to help them out and not care she is unmarried.
Pawpaw actually lives near me, and last week he hosted another cookout. HUNDREDS of people showed up from all of the U.S. & Canada! They did a special news story about it. lol Also, he admitted that two of the grandkids didn't even know about the previous dinner and one thought it was the next day. They're all teenagers. :)
Yeah, I just came here to say, and if you DO get married, it'll be "when are you having kids?" and then "are you pregnant yet?" and then "you're not getting any younger!" Some people are just like that...if you call them out, they say they "just want you to be happy" but they really want you to make THEM happy.
Just go with the flow and ignore it. I am 41, married, have kids, and my grandma still thinks I am gay, all because I didn't care about girls when I was a teenager. As long as you are happy with your life the way it is, who cares what the grandparents think.
If I've learned anything from rom-coms, it's that hiring an actor to play your husband will result in marriage. You should start taking tips from movies. It's guaranteed to work.
