I wish my parent's would stop trying to "gently" manipulate my thoughts to get me to break up with Honeybun.
He's been fighting a DUI charge for over 2 years now, and it will finally go to trial next week. They keep asking about his work (at a coffee shop) - How many hours is he working? What are his wages? When is he going to start college? What if he gets charged with the DUI? How will he afford it? He should get out there and "hit the pavement" for a "real" job.
I never answer the questions, because it's honestly not my place to tell them. They keep poking and prodding into our financial life, and it's a bit frustrating. They know very well I make much more money than him, and they always say I "shouldn't have to be the breadwinner. He should be the one taking care of you."
I remind them that's a shallow and sexist way of thinking, and that they raised me to be more independent than that. They don't see how much he does at home or how he makes me feel loved. They want me to be with someone with "drive" and "ambition."
