DEAR AUNTIE ABENA,
I’m a 25 years old going out with a guy I deeply love and he love me too. We are both from the same town. Both of us understand each other and are committed. We’ve been dating for 8 months now and he has introduced me to his family members which they said he has never done before.
The problem is that my elder brother who is 27 years and took care of me at the Nurses training says that the guy has dated some people from the town so he won’t be in support of the marriage.
Auntie Abena, the guy really dated them during his adolescent age but now most of them are married with kids. Before we started dating, I consulted my mom if she will be happy with it and she said yes but now she is saying that once my brother says he is not in support then she is also not in support.
Meanwhile, we have started buying some of the things. Also my brother said he will allow me to be on my own after I finish my degree and masters. Inside me I don’t want to leave this guy because I don’t know if I will get someone like him in the future. Please advise me as to what to do. Thank you
