Should I end things with my boyfriend? watch

    This is really bothering me, because on the one hand I can see things really lasting with this boyfriend, but on the other hand I'm worrying about the influence that his family has on him.

    My boyfriend and I have been together for a couple of months, and yesterday evening I went round his house to meet his parents. It was a very nice house, and his father seemed very gentlemanly. I had a look around the kitchen though, and could see that on the washing line, his mother had hung up her underwear. I don't know about you, but I find it extremely difficult to have respect for a lady who hangs out her knickers for all the neighbours to see. Not only that, but I saw that she also had an ashtray in the kitchen (of all places :rolleyes:).

    With some effort, I could see myself getting over these things, but when I told my mum she was very adamant that I should get rid of my boyfriend because he's not being imbued with good manners at home and will inevitably break my heart a few years down the line.

    Do you think I should end things?

    yes, you definitey should end it with him, he has taken all the trouble to intoduce you to his parents etc, you obviously mean alot to him, whereas you're considering leaving him over......well nothing.

    i think there are quite a few people who hang there underwear out on the washing line but they tend to be older people, thats not a reason to end the relationship as seems to be very petty if you do

    um... where else is she supposed to hang her underwear to dry? and if she wants to smoke in her own home that's no crime either
    also, you've been going out a few months & already thinking about him dumping you a few YEARS down the line?
