Here’s a little secret: nobody fully approves of the person their daughter marries. Your parents want you to be with someone perfect—some illusion that doesn’t exist. Naturally, nobody is going to live up to that. Some people, however, are fortunate to wind up with someone that their parents really like, and even love. Some women marry men that are just the next best thing after that perfect illusion their parents had for them. Others may not marry the man of their parents’ dreams, but they have parents who are smart enough not to say anything about that, because they know that saying something will just put a strain on their relationship with their child. Then there are those few, unfortunate souls who first off, marry someone who doesn’t totally impress their parents and second off, have parents who won’t shut up about it. Here’s what it’s like to marry someone that doesn’t impress your parents.
They still try to set you up
Your parents not-so-subtly still try to set you up with other men. When you go home to visit them sans-husband, they just so happen to invite their friend’s young, successful, single son over.
