Ashley Chooses J.P. Against Her Sister's Recommendation

On The Bachelorette last night, Ashley accepted construction manager J.P. Rosenbaum's proposal despite a shaky start to the show's finale. Her sister, Chrystie Corns, told her in not-so-subtle terms that she didn't think Ashley and J.P. were a good match. Chrystie was honest about her reaction to seeing Ashley and J.P. together, saying she didn't think Ashley was being herself and that he didn't bring out her fun side, but Ashley followed her heart instead of her sister's rational opinion.

On one hand, I understand that your family knows you better than anyone else; on the other, a relationship is extremely personal, and it's ultimately between you and your significant other. At a viewing party of the show, two married gals said their parents made comments like "keep your options open" and "not my ideal son-in-law" when first meeting their future husbands, but the parents learned to love the guys over time. If it came down to your family's opinion versus the fella you're dating, who would you choose?

I don't think I could choose one over the other, but if my sister acted anything like Chrystie after knowing someone for 10 minutes, I'd have no choice but to disregard her opinion. She came up with a very strong opinion out of NOWHERE!
