My boyfriend and I are planning to wed next year but my parents have said that if I marry him nobody from my family will attend the wedding, that they won't give me their blessings and he will not be recognized as my husband in my family. I love him so much Thelma, I'm not a child so I know what I want. He is a good man and I have peace with him. My mother said that besides the main problem tha he belongs to another church they took his picture to our family pastor and they said he is not my husband. My parents said if I insist on marrying him then I am on my own. What I just want to know is what are the advantages and disadvantages of marrying without your parents blessing?
Please can someone shed more light on this issue of taking a person's picture to men/women of God to check if they are the wife or husband? Does it really work? I have friends who have left or been left by a partner because one pastor or the other said they were not the one. Please how does this work?
