I cut off my parents for this reason. I don’t need the toxicity of a dictatorship in my life. My parents raised me to be strong, to be resilient. It’s just sad that I’m using these skills on them right now

Mom: So, when you get married...
Me: Mom I'm not gonna get married. Ever.
Mom: But when you find a nice boy...
Me: Mom, no.
Mom: Or a girl!
Me: That's not the point, mom!

My mom doesn't care if I married a sea turtle, she just wants me to get married lmao. And that's one of the last things that I want.

Respect is a two-way street. Parents can't demand respect without being willing to give some back. This is a respect issue.

Loving and devoted parents regardless of their sexuality is what a child needs growing up. Many blessings to you and all parents just trying to raise their little ones in this world.

To the one who wrote their story:

I hope you and your family have the BEST life.

My family abandoned me for dating a black man (we're still together and talking about marriage). It didn't hurt me because I didn't have a great relationship with them to begin with, but I can understand the meaning behind this story and the hurt that they must have felt. I hope things keep on improving for you both.

Makes me feel extremely lucky to have an aunt on my side of the family and my wife's parents who accept us. It hurts knowing that parts of our family don't want to see us anymore. Like me marrying a woman changed who they had always known.

They got married bc they loved EACH OTHER (parents) so why can't your child have a happy life with someone they also love is what I hope most homophobic parents will ask themselves...

This is so emotionally moving, and it really reaches deep within and strikes at the core of what everyone wants from life, to be loved for who they are unequivocally.

I'm in my late 20s (now early 30s) when I went to China for work. After 3 yrs, I met my chinese ex-bf who was just 22. He went to China military before going for university. He would always tell me that we can't be together forever as he'll have to marry a girl later. Every time he'd say that, I felt pain but then again that's what the reality here.

I'm asexual, not interested in dating or marriage, and haven't told my parents. When I once suggested that I were to live without a partner for the rest of my life, my parents looked so shocked that I'm not sure I would ever really *want* to tell them. They're great parents, don't get me wrong, but to an extent our beliefs just don't match up.
