And while I like to maintain a separation between church and date, I don’t think your culture can be entirely ignored here. Good parenting means giving your kids the tools to make good decisions, NOT making decisions for them.
Okay, so, maybe I’m making religion the unfair scapegoat for your parents’ judgment of your boyfriend, without any real context. When I declared in 1993 that I was cancelling my LSATs and becoming a comedy writer, my parents supported me. When I decided that I wasn’t going to pursue screenwriting anymore and that I was going to film school to be a professor, my parents supported me…. When I told them I was dropping out of film school to promote “I Can’t Believe I’m Buying This Book” and E-Cyrano, and was going to make my way as a dating coach, my parents supported me.
There’s a big difference between Mom cautioning you not to settle down with the heroin-shooting rock star and her commanding you not to marry Patrick because he doesn’t have a masters degree and his family goes to church instead of synagogue. Still, I’d be remiss if you thought I was suggesting that all parental wisdom is worthless. I hate spam as much as you do, therefore I will never sell, rent, or give away your email address.
Obviously, racism and social taboos were a lot stronger when my parents were young; but there was way more than just the skin color, religious, and cultural differences at stake.
Personally, I say to each their own, too, but if I was a parent with a young daughter, I know this would give me pause. Also, you will have much more influence in their lives if they are convinced that you really care about them, as opposed to trying to manipulate and control them.

If parents don’t want their daughter be absorbed in a foreign culture, possibly live in a foreign country, and see their grandchildren not identify with their maternal culture, I think that parents can be expected to disapprove of a relationship.
Maybe the parents are wrong to think it, but parents can be concerned when it looks like a man is taking their daughter away from them.
In more individualistic cultures, young adults are supposed to find their own way independently of their parents. Since Gili doesn’t say the exact nature of the disapproval I think she should consider that if what her parents see is something like what my father did, she needs to take a step back and really look at the relationship. After him, I went out dating with a lot of guys and I had 3 serious relationships but none of them go as far as I wanted to. Every time, when I am heartbroken, I look around, my first boyfriend is the only one who is still there for me. I am struggling between stable life and passionate love (which I may not be able to find or eventually may fade away). I may have broken their hearts and drained their wallets and destroyed their dreams of having a professional son, but they knew that I was driven and competent and had to find my own way. But if your parents find it more important to be “right” than to be supportive, I feel confident that you’re better off without them on your very special day. In such case, the whole societies are built on different (and I would like to underline DIFFERENT, not inferior) set of norm and values, and so are the children socialized. 3 weeks ago, I broke up with my boyfriend for 6 months and I am still trying to recover from the pain. Nothing could have sown the seeds of strife MORE than them putting their foot down and telling me where I was going to work and what I was going to do.

They think that because they brought you into this world and sacrificed tremendously for you that they have a right to tell you how to life your life as an adult.
But there’s a big difference between Mom cautioning you not to settle down with the heroin-shooting rock star and her commanding you not to marry Patrick because he doesn’t have a masters degree and his family goes to church instead of synagogue.
Some parents will try to keep their children dependent on them and influence their decisions. She was never very vocal about it, and even dodged the question a few times if I asked her point blank if she liked the guy or not. The consequence of being a disapproving misery merchant is that Gili can simply walk away, and her parents won’t see much of her or talk to her much. However, I don’t know if I can meet someone who love me like my first boyfriend does.
I can picture myself single for the rest of my life with a dog and my first boyfriend is having a loving family. Right may just end up like the feeling I have with my first boyfriend, just that he won’t treat me as good as my first boyfriend treats me.
