Heartbreak in the making: Disrespect and disobeying you parents with the encouragement of your boyfriend.
Skip these parts:
Having countless arguments with your guy over your parents' rules.
Fighting with your parents, especially when you defend your boyfriend.
Turning your back on your parents because for some reason, you start to believe everything your guy says.
The Lesson: A good boyfriend encourages you to respect your parents' rules—not to defy them.
If you're going through this right now: Take a step back and analyze the situation. Why are your parents against you relationship? Are they being unreasonable? What will you get from disobeying your parents' rules? What did you prove and what did you gain? Talk to your parents and listen to their point of view. A guy who respects you will respect the people who raised you as well. Your relationship should not alienate the people who care about you, so if your dream guy isn't so dreamy in front of your folks, it's time to think twice.
