Well I can say from my personal experience family forces are hard to deal with. If he is seeking acceptance from his family just to be with someone he loves, he will always search their acceptance. Is that something you are prepared to deal with always? What if you and he decide to have children would he need their ok as well? If it was me i would ask what will happen if they don't ever approve? Would he take the risk and still be with you? Just my opinion I seem to have alot today lol
