I need your fair your advice urgently!
Im in a six month relationship with a guy whose supposed to be my fiance'. I have 2 daughters from my previous relationship. The guy took his parents to meet my parents and apparently he never told them about my 2 daughters. And I asked him why? He told me that he was waiting for the right time. We were supposed to visit his parents my with my babe daughter and now he's telling me that he doesnt think its a gud thing we visit the parents with her because they nothing about them. And I ask how long are you gonna keep this from they cause they need to know the exact me. He's asking me to go and drop my daughter at my mom's and come along with him to his mom's birthday. I told him that I wont do that, his parents need to know that I have 2 kids. I wont keep on pretending to be something that Im not. Its either they accept me with my kids or they dont. He said he will tell the parents after his mom's birthday which is Saturday. And still I refused I told him they deserve to know even before I show my face in their house. Do you think Im being unreasonable here esp for someone who thinks that Im his perfect wife?

Surely you're right to want to be open and honest with his parents, and you need to wodner why he doesn't want that. You're being reasonable. he is treating the existence of your children, a vitally important part of you, as if it were a dirty secret that would "spoil" his mother's birthday ? You can tell him that if he plans to tell his mom after her birthday, you'll wait until then to meet them
