To my parents who do not like my wife

To my parents who do not like my wife

All my life, I've always depended on your advice and knowledge when it comes to the decisions I make. And I'm happy to say that I've never regretted following your advice since it has helped me become the man that I am right now.

Likewise, you've always been supportive of my personal decisions. The only exception was when it came to the woman I married.

I know you're just looking out for me

All parents want the best for their kids, and that's what you've always told me ever since I was little. That's why it was difficult for me to go against your wishes when I married my wife.

I know you're just looking out for me, but I want you to know that I'm old enough to make decisions for myself, and I stand firm with my decision to marry the woman I love.

It's not easy for me to go against your wishes since I respect the both of you as my parents. And even more than that, I don't want you to feel betrayed or feel that I'm deliberately trying to hurt you. But I hope you understand that regardless of my decision to go against your wishes, I still love and respect the both of you.

I hope someday things will be better for us

I know that right now we're not on speaking terms. But I do hope that someday, things will be better for us, and we can be one big, happy family.

I also wanted to let you know that we're expecting our first child soon. That means that you're finally going to be grandparents!

I hope that we can patch things up soon since I really want my child to be close to you, just like how I was when I was still a kid.

More than anything, I want you to be close with my wife. She's a wonderful woman and in spite of your differences, I'm sure that you'll find a lot of things that you have in common.

I love you, mum and dad, and I'm still hoping that we can settle our differences and be able to be a family together.
