Girl­friend’s par­ents don’t know me

The Star (Jamaica) - - Front Page -

Dear Pas­tor,

I am a male and I will be out of high school this year. I do not have many friends, but I have a girl­friend. She and I at­tend the same high school and out of all the guys, she chose me to be her boyfriend.

She has made me feel so spe­cial. Some­times when I don’t have lunch money, she would give me money. She is plan­ning to do law and I am hop­ing to do medicine. Pas­tor, we love each other very much.

My par­ents know her, but her par­ents don’t know me. She is not ready to in­tro­duce me to them. She says the time will come when she will have to do so, but she is wait­ing un­til she gets ac­cepted into uni­ver­sity.

Some­times I won­der if she is afraid to let her par­ents know that she is in love with a guy like me, who is not from a big-shot fam­ily. She is a real friend and I love her, and one day I know we will get mar­ried.


Dear E.J.,

I hope that this girl means you well; you say she has cho­sen you over all other guys. Con­grat­u­la­tions to you. You don’t have to be wor­ried about your back­ground.

You are not re­spon­si­ble for where you were born or who your par­ents are. You are re­spon­si­ble for what you be­come.

You have been very for­tu­nate to have had a re­la­tion­ship with this young woman. Un­doubt­edly, she loves you. She has high goals and you, too, have high goals.

She is re­luc­tant in in­tro­duc­ing you to her par­ents. She does not feel that the time is right. I hope you won’t try to push her.

Be­ing in school to­gether is quite dif­fer­ent from the work­ing world. Time will tell if this re­la­tion­ship will last.
