Re: Husband hates my parents !! Help
Perhaps it is okay to for a man to beat his wife in your culture? We are all products of our environment. I have worked very hard not to let my parent's cultural bias against women affect how I live my life.
I became independent of my parents and lived alone, despite their beliefs that daughters should not move out until they are married. They called me every name in the book and smeared me to my extended family. I still held my ground, just like I did when we were engaged and my parents wanted to control our wedding. We eloped.
At some point, you have to decide if your safety and happiness is worth sacrificing to please your parents. I have so much sympathy for first generation Canadian or American women. If your parents come from a culture which subjugates women, moms and dads often try to push their ideology on their daughters.
I'm sensing that your family is east indian or middle eastern. Am I correct?
