I have been dating for the last 6 months we were both exited and considering marriage the storm came in when my boyfriends mother had about it she has not met me yet she is so against it because of my race. My boyfriend feels torn betweeen me and his mother since our relationship has ruined his relationship with his mother. I feel like am an obstacle what should i do? He is so down and was considering that we just break up but its so hard for me to let him go since the two of us are ok the issue is his mother?

Please help what should I do how should treat him?

Hi Nillah,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Sorry to hear this.  I am sure this is very hard for you.  You will need to let him know how you feel about all this.  Maybe, you can arrange something for you and his mother to do together.  Such as maybe go to lunch or to a mall.  Something you know she likes to do,  so she can have the time to know you better.  Unfortunately, if she doesn't accept it's not the right start for a relationship.  It might be better to stay as friends and only time will tell.  

Best of luck,
