    Do your parents have you scheduled for an arranged marriage?

    3 years is a long time to keep a "secret" from your parents. I suspect that is primarily why they are upset. Secondly, some parents do have a hard time letting go of their children (flying away from the nest) and this is all too soon for them, especially that you hid it from them.
    They also very likely want you to stay focussed on your education and career. A "serious" boyfriend could mean to them that you are not going to stay focussed.
    I suggest a heart to heart conversation with your parents over tea and tell them how important this person is in your life, and then pay close attention to their response and their views on the subject.
    Maybe there is something else bothering them that hasn't been part of the conversation yet.

    You've spent 3 years doing what you want, so why should it matter now?
