Smh. That sucks. Maybe you should find a boyfriend that's a bit more pleasing to the parents. If you really love him though, stick with him.
That is the WORST choice you can make. If the boyfriend loved her then he would try to be pleasing to her parents and make sure she is able to be with him without the law and his behavior getting in the way. He makes the choice on who he hangs out with. If the parents still have legal custody over Op then she has no say in who she is allowed to hang out with or date, since she is legally under her parents jurisdiction. However telling someone to stick with a potential low life and criminal is stupid. She should move on a find a real man who will love her and be with her, without screwing up.
30. While the boyfriend isn't there to 'please the parents' its quite disrespectful to go against their wishes. I never would have even thought about falling for someone if I knew my parents wouldn't approved. No parent wants their teenage girl to date a low life, disrespectful punk.
Sounds to me like she's tried. Honestly, 'trying to help' doesn't work. If it's a problem now, more than likely it will be a problem down the road. Not to mention she's a teenager. I'm sure it would be much better for her future if she cut her losses and moved on.
47- That is completely different. You don't know why OP's boyfriend was getting in trouble for. If it was just stealing from a store that is different then conflicting damage upon little animals. Although i agree the boyfriend is probally not someone OP should be seeing if he doesn't try to impress OP's parents and keeping OP safe by his actions.
I am in this same situation. My boyfriend has done a lot to to stay with me and please my parents when he meets them. My parents havent even met him and are already judging him because I told them he has 2 tattoos. But I agree, your boyfriend should atleast try to get along with your parents and change for the better. goodluck!
&35 your parents opinion might not always be the best thing. Their own prejudice may get in the way... Saying that you'd never go against your parents wishes means you don't really make choices for yourself. My parents were totally against me dating my boyfriend only because he was black... Yet I ignored them did it anyway and went through a lot of bad things because of it. And it was worth it and we have been together for 3 years. Don't always "follow your parents rules"
Parents don't give second chances. They're firm believers in first impressions sadly.
Actually he offered another chance, just in time to see his daughters boyfriend acting a fool. I understand you have an opinion but look at it from a parents point of view. No parent wants their son/daughter dating someone that could possibly lead them down the wrong path in life. In my opinion OP should leave him while she can. There are plenty of decent guys out there that she could be with rather than wasting her time on a low life.
