If all parents were always right, they might be even more annoying than they are, but life would be much simpler. I'm always puzzled by how THEIR parents were always supposedly right ( so, by definition, they must have ben wrong ) but as soon as they themselves had kids, they became always right. marvellous system.
OK, parents can inded sometimes see aspects of a relationship that OUGHT to worry you, but which you may be too much in love to see at all, or to take seriously enough. So always take their concerns seriously and check them out. For instance, how EX an alcoholic is he ? Is he still under care, a member of AA, or what ? Make sure you know and understand how the alcoholism affected him at is worst, its historyk and how he is handling it now.
