Do they enforce any "guidelines" on who you should and shouldn't date? Are they strict on what colour skin or religion your partner is?

My mum is extremely strict and religious and wants me to exclusively date a Christian girl. I can't say for sure if that will happen though...

Discuss.

I'm sure they won't mind, I can date anything I want, as long as it's decent then it's all good. They don't really have an opinion on the matter.

Weirdly, for Asian parents mine encourage me to try out relationships.

But thus far, I've really steered clear of them xD Idk why - just not something that appeals to me because I have really specific needs and I wouldn't want to pressure someone else to suit them :O

My parents kicked me out because I didn't conform with their idea of perfect partner. That count as strict?

Yes.

I know that if I date a muslim, a black girl or a guy, they will never want to see me again. Good thing is I'm not attracted to any of them.

The day I finally have a partner that likes me long enough to meet my parents will be the day my parents suffer a fatal heart attack.... So it's a win win

Lmao they prefer Jewish partners but wouldn't mind. I've bought home two boys and one was Jewish and one wasn't.

They basically place my happiness above their religious beliefs I guess.

they have their preferences (read: prejudices) but they would ultimately accept whoever i was with (they wouldn't exactly have much choice in the matter)

I'm 16 and have never had a boyfriend, my mum probably doesn't want me to until I'm older.
She doesn't mind if I date a white guy, but prefers it if he was Chinese just because it's easier in terms of communication etc
I also remember one time her saying that she doesn't want me to be pregnant until I'm at least 26.

I wasn't allowed to start dating until I was 17 - basically after my highers/A levels.

They are very religious, but so long as the person is religious, it doesn't matter if they were christian, muslim, jewish etc
