PARENTS UPSET WITH SON DATING 40 Y.O OLDER WOMAN WHO IS POOR & CAN’T HAVE KIDS

My parents don’t approve of my gf. What can I do?

Advertisements

I’m 30M dating a 40F. Her last relationship was 10 years ago. Never been married. Initially I don’t find her physically attractive but she has a great personality and is very filial to her parents. I used to date for looks but usually the women bore me quickly. With my current gf, things have been so different as she’s also intelligent. She’s not working in the corporate world, unlike me so she has this childlike view of the world and probably less work stress so she looks much younger than her age.

Initially she was looking for a place of her own, as she had been renting for years. After we got together, she stopped looking. I guess she was thinking there’s a chance we may settle down in the future.

Soon I found out she has been living on minimum wage since the start of her career. Actual fact she does not have money to buy even the cheapest hdb. I’m shocked that for someone who had worked for close to 20 years with little commitments, she can’t really support herself and still take an allowance from her parents. When we go out I’m usually paying most of the time which I don’t mind.

Initially my parents were polite to her until they found out about her age and job. They wanted me to find a younger, more highly educated woman with a better paying job as they felt my gf is a liability to me. Basically my parents look down on my gf after knowing more about her. I didn’t tell my parents my gf and I have no plans to have children as she also has fertility issues so I think that would make things worse.

I argued with my gf so many times over this as my gf felt its important that my parents accept her. I’ve also argued with my parents when they bring up the subject about my gf. I’m just so frustrated about the entire thing now. Why can’t I just continue to see my gf in peace? How do you cope in such a situation?
