girlfriend's mother is superstitious (10)

1 Name: Secret Admirer : 2008-10-02 00:46 ID:wVz9mes6

I'm in a relationship with a wonderful girl and everything is going great until her mother went to a fortune teller to check on our future. Now she wants us to break off and forbid my girlfriend to see me because the fortune teller said we're a bad match and i will turn out to be a wife-beater.

Naw, don't waste the money. The teller could only tell you what you would want to hear, some help that'd be.

I think the mother should give you a chance anyways. Have you tried talking to her about it? What about your girlfriend, what has she said?

I haven't talk to gf mother yet gf said it's not a good time. she said she doesn't believe in it and we should keep going out but we'll have harder time seeing each other because of this.

what i meant was going to other fortune teller to show her mother that those things are stupid and to get her change her mind.

Well... if the fortune is destined to become true then it doesn't matter what the mother does.

The fact that the mother believes in fortune telling implies that she's an imbecile; she may be easy to manipulate. Do your research, and never come across as aggressive.

The truth is, no matter what you say or do, if the woman is superstitious enough to actually consult a fortune teller, then she's going to take that person's word over yours, her daughter's or anyone else's any day of the week.

Actually, we already broke up. her whole family is against it and they were getting abusive almost physically. quite ironic seeing how the reason they want us to break of is because they believe i'll turn out to be wife beater. so we decide to take a break for now. maybe someday when we both ready mentally and financially i'll take her far away from them.

That's a pity,... Personally I would not give up, but one needs to avoid unnecessary confrontation

I would have fun with this. Have a foreign looking friend of yours pose at a guru or something like that. Then make her tell all this crazy this. Lets see if she believes him.

hmm...i bet that fortune teller wants to introduce his/her son to your ex. If I were you, I would beat up that fortune teller anyway. I wouldn't even hope getting back together with the girl since I don't like taking chances like that. Like...I mean...who knows, the parents still wouldn't like me in the future. That's what I think anyway.....
