Slow Down, You Move Too Fast

Dear Sugar
I'm a 22 year old single mom living on my own. I'm going through a divorce and the paper work is all but done. I've met a great guy whom I am dating, but my parents refuse to meet him. They are very religious and since my divorce isn't final quite yet, they won't let me bring him over to their house. He is a different religion than we are, and my Father is going to try and break us up over it - I just know it. Also, my Mother won't allow us to touch at all if and when they do meet him. I'm scared my parents are going to scare him off. Parented Out Peta

Dear Parented Out Peta
Sounds like your parents are going to try their dandiest to pull you 2 apart. Why don't you wait a little bit longer before introducing him to your folks - just to be sure it's really worth the trouble of fighting your family for him. Also, since you are currently going through a divorce and you have a child to worry about, maybe you should slow down altogether and just casually date around until you are officially divorced and can handle another serious relationship. From the starting gate you guys are facing familial and religious obstacles - Are you sure you are ready for this just yet?
