Sean Posted March 5, 2007 Share Posted March 5, 2007 Ok, so my girlfriend's family is in WA, and she's in NC with me. This June I will be going with her to meet her entire family for basically a camp out that goes from June 16th to June 22. We will be gone from June 14th to June 24th. Kay and I are paying for this trip ourselves with no one help. However my parents are concerned about me being away and be surrounded by strangers for 10 days in the outdoors. They would like to discuss it, however, as I see it there's not much to discuss. My girlfriend and I are adults and should be able to make our own choices without having to talk about it with the family. They know our plans, they know where we'll be at, and they know that we're paying for it, and in my mind that's all they should need to know. You'd think at the age of 23, my family would actually just say "Well, I hope you guys have fun." However nope, it's "We need to talk about it, don't make any reservation yet." I think my family is being a little over protective, and I would like for them to realize that I am now living my own life, and that I should be able to do things without having to talk about it with the family. What do you guys think? Quote Link to comment
