Nice GF and my snobby family. What do I do?

Nice GF and my snobby family. What do I do? Topic: Business plan for college students
July 18, 2019 / By Audrea
Question: My family is comprised of 2 doctors and my sister the lawyer. I’m 19 and still in college. I’m pretty smart, not like genius level, but I’m pretty bright( hoping I don’t sound arrogant). I’m a freshman Business major. I got to school in August and my roommate and I went out to lunch and there was this pretty waitress. Well, turns out our hometowns are near each other( we’ve been dating 4 months). My family didn’t get a chance to meet her until last night ( first night of Xmas break). She met the family, ate dinner with us, chilled with me, and then left. I didn’t ask anyone’s opinion, they just started giving it. I do have to exclude my dad, he liked her. My mom: Does she go to any kind of schooling? Me: Well, she plans on community college in the future and then a 4 year school nearby, maybe UIC( University of Illinois-Chicago) Her: So no education. Don’t get me wrong, she’s a very pretty girl, not much in the brains department though. Answer me this: Are you dumbing yourself down to her level in any way? You shouldn’t dumb down for an uneducated girl. My sister: She’ll make a great 3rd wife one day. Me( mad): And you’ll make a great one night stand one day. She’s a very nice and sweet girl. You saw that tonight. My mom: I just wish you were dating at least a college student. What is their problem?

They want someone at your level. I dealt with the same thing when I married my husband. My husband was a marine (no education) but had a stable career none the less. I was a college student and all I came with was 2nd hand furniture and a lot of college debt. His family freaked! Accused me of being a gold digger and warned him I would get pregnant to keep him around. A year later and I have a BS and a $100,000 a year career (oh, and not pregnant or planning to become so!). So who is holding who back now? Your family is looking out for you, but in the wrong way. Your happiness and health should be the most important thing to them, not what they think of your girlfriend.

Be patient is a fool's method - it will only ensure that you will become more impatient over time. The best defense for a family member is harsh, ugly truth. This will make a break in your relationship and change things forever, but it's up to you to do it it not. I wrote my mo a letter telling her how her **** makes a viable relationship impossible. She went nuts and called me and I told her I won't do it anymore - she did everything to manipulate. I cut her out. Years later, after the kids were born, she had a new need to be in my life but I told her it would be on my terms and to read the letter if she didn't remember them. She behaves now and we've become good friends. I was amazed at the reflecting she did to understand and explain to me why she acted the way she does. She now thanks me and claims a happier life. It was rough though but worked out. Hard love.

they just want what is best for you and no one holding you back. They want you to be your very best and they dont think you could with someone who doesnt have a good job or a bright future like you.

Stacey Originally Answered: Family men - Do you have to travel for work and does it bother you to be away from your family?
1. How often do you have to travel? about 3 times a month 2. Would you change jobs if you could to avoid traveling? it would depend on the money, keep in mind my extensive travel does earn my family a lot of travel rewards I would say worth about 10k per year. 3. Do you miss your family while you are away or do you enjoy the time apart? Tough answer, both. 4. Do you just MISS them a little or are you miserable while you are away from your family? Well I ussually have a lot of work to do while i am on the road. of course I miss my family but I do need to focus on my work and career. I enjoy my work and Iam not the type of person to sit around and be miserable. 5. Who do you miss more.....your wife or your kids? I may give a slight edge to the wife, but I really done think of things separately, I look at the family as a whole, but my wife is my life partner. 6. Do you take assignments that require travel just so you can get away? As a road warrior If I spend 5 or 6 weeks at home I do get the bug to get on the road a little bit. But getaway day to return home is ussually my favorite day of the week!! 7. Does your wife like you traveling or prefer that you don't? she doesnt complain about free trips or little getaways that come as part of the perks. 8. Are you faithful to your wife when you are traveling? yes 9. If you could take a job with no travel and the same pay would you take it? i would want more money, but It would depend on the job and career growth etc. These questions lead me to think you may be experiencing some insecurity. You know your marriage netter than me so you really have to draw your own conclusions. Try to take advantage of the hotel points and airline and car rental rewards. Research programs and try to find what will work best for your family. American Airlines have some nice all inclusive vacations. marriot and Starwood have excellent programs. Staying in a nice hotel for a weekend getaway and not having to pay for the hotel is a great perk. Maybe combine a short side trip with your partners travels. Take advantage of the perks and enjoy!!
Stacey Originally Answered: Family men - Do you have to travel for work and does it bother you to be away from your family?
1. I have traveled as much as 30%, ie, more than 1 week per month 2. Only if traveling becomes over 40% and are all international. 3 & 4. I routinely call them upon arrival and then call them every other day or so. I miss them but not miserably. I have a job to do and everybody knows that. Being miserable doesn't shorten the visit anyway. 5. I miss my kids more because I am very close to them. 6. Most senior positions nowadays have to travel, no way around that. 7. She works and she knows what is normal of jobs 8. I don't smoke or drink so I don't go to bars or places to look for actions. Almost all 1-night stands have dangerous consequences and so are affairs in offices or business partners. It is not about being faithful to anybody. It is about integrity. 9. As one ages, his body doesn't take travel that well. If you are already in a business that requires travel, those positions are about the same. Very hard to switch to another business sector these days. Businessmen are mostly hardened by their job. The companies are understanding about calling homes but anyone who get very sentimental about being miserable is viewed not fit for the job.
