I love him but my family doesn't approve....
      08/30/12 02:40 PM

My boyfriend of a couple months just got diagnosed. I know what you're gonna say, it's only been a couple months, how can you love him? But the thing is we've been best friends since like 10 or 11 and weboth had this secret crush on each other but never wanted to reveal it for fear of ruining our friendship. When he finally asked me to be his gf, I was ecstatic and everything was going great, we even had plans of marriage and a family in the future. Then one day we were supposed to go run some errands early in the morning when he got a call from his doctor that he needed to go see her as soon as possible. Of course I went with him. He had had a routine blood test and that something had come up. I shrugged it off and thought it was something like anemia or something, but when he came out, I knew something was up, I'd never seen him like that. I kept asking him to tell me what was wrong and he wouldn't and then started crying. He couldn't tell me he just showed me the paper and my whole life came crushing down. I just couldn't believe it, and you can just imagine how he was. Up till that point we had not done much past making out but my parents made me get checked anyways, I'm - he wasn't the same after that, distancing himself more each day, until finally he broke up with me. He said he couldn't live with the fact that he could be putting me at risk, that he loved me too much for that. Since day 1I told him his status did not matter to me and we could find a way to stay together. I love him and I really could not imagine my life with anyone else. We recently got back together, he said all he'd needed was a little time to adjust to things and fully understand and commit to our relationship. The only problem is my parents. They're very against our relationship and I feel as though I'm being tugged at from both sides. Neither love has more weight than the other, and I can't choose one or the other. How do I make them see that my bf makes me happy and regardless of his status I love him with all my heart. I have done extensive research on the topic, so it's not like I'm some naive lovestruck teen. I am an adult and can make my own decisions, but how do I make them understand that?
