Parents have interfered with dating choices since the days of Romeo and Juliet. They get upset about money, race, social class, family, you name it.
There comes a point in your life that you have to make your own decision. You have to live your own life and do what is best for you. It is your parents decision to raise you - but they do NOT run your life. They raised you to be a self sufficient human being. And it is up to YOU to choose what is best for your own life.
