jiji Posted April 22, 2019 Share Posted April 22, 2019 Hi, I've been dating my boyfriend for almost a year now. He is a 30 year old man, with 2 master degrees from the college and a mediocre government job. His mother abandoned him upon birth and his father was never in the picture (he went to the jail and is still in jail for drug dealing and attempted murder, and my boyfriend almost never saw his dad). His mom married 4 times and has a son from every one of her ex-husbands. She didn't raise any of those kids, and right now is a drug addict living under social security government support. So my boyfriend was raised by his grandparents in a house where a bipolar and mentally unstable uncle lived as well (who is around 60 years old now and is single and never sought professional help). My boyfriend's brother (the only one in touch with my boyfriend) is living with a woman who constantly cheats on him and has 2 other kids from other men. All in all, everyone in that family seem to be either ill/addict and/or in an awful condition. I was raised by my parents in a wealthy family and though they had arguments from time to time, but cheating and divorce had never been a thing to think about in my family, and as far as I am aware, no one even in my distant family ended up in jail ever. Though my boyfriends' grandparents are good people, but I just think that him and I are from two different social classes family-wise and this really bothers me. I can never enjoy being around his family and constantly feel uncomfortable around them. Could this be an issue in our relationship? What if he asks me to marry him? Should I consider this as well while making big decisions about our relationship? Link to comment
