sorry to just drop a link and run, but the Carolyn Hax article this morning _Family ties and the unwinding of ‘self-improvement’_ was good enough that I need to leave it here to read again.

The way she re-frames the boyfriend's concern is ...interesting and made a lightbulb go off over my head about an old friend I don't see much anymore (not any of you, lj-list).

Worth reading. I can empathize with the girlfriend (about the parents, not about the SO).

Yeah, on the whole I thought her solution to the parent problem was great. She was doing what she thought she should and found a lower stress level.
