How do you feel about this subject when it comes to your son/daughter? For those who have parents like this, what are your comments? When it comes to this, I don't think my parents are that bad, but they feel this way to some extent & I think that's pretty normal. Yes, my parents would just love it if I brought a dr or lawyer home, but as long as they have a good job & respect, love & appreciate me, that's all they care about. I think it goes too far when a person's son or daughter's mate can ONLY be a doctor, lawyer, or make a certain amount of money, otherwise, they aren't good enough. Then, it gets dicey when parents want their kids to ONLY date/marry people of a certain race. It's like it's alright for other people, but not THEIR child, which is a shame, but that's how a lot of people are. On the other side of the fence, I think I'm a good catch & my BF is blessed to have me, but I've never been pompous about it. I'm glad I have him too because we agree on so many important issues & have the same morals & values.
