    I've been with my boyfriend for nearly 2 years and still my parents won't accept him. When we first got together he didn't have a job or go to college so they saw him as a waste of space. Then something happened in our relationship to which his Mum involved the police and since then my parents hate me speaking to him. I just want them to accept that we are together still and that now he is changing his life around as he has a job and goes to college.

    How can I do this without them hating me?

    What actually happened? If it involved violence my mum would never forgive. Also, maybe never complain about him to her? Always seems a bad idea to me

    His mum thought there was domestic violence however there wasn't anything wrong. It's just that she's a police officer and thought that she had seen the signs of it. I don't complain about him, they just seem to hate me mentioning him even if it's just to say I have seen him.

    What is his job and what level is he studying at college? I could do with a laugh.

    He's working at a local e-bay office i.e. putting items onto e-bay and packaging them to be sent. He's re-doing his maths and english GCSE's as he only got C on both
