Just tell them. I'm sure they will have concerns but I would hope they wouldn't be negative. Good luck :)

I agree just tell them.  if they have negative remarks just ignore it.  If you two are happy thats what counts!

I am going through the same thing right now. My family really does approved of the father of my unborn baby. I was reluctant to tell many of them and I did it. I figured they would find out anyway. Well like I expected most of my family and friends were pretty disappointed. Some to the point they no longer wish to be my friends.it's quite disheartening . But this is what I want. Just try not yo let it get to you. If its what u want. Do it. If they love you they willl stay. That's my beat advice. Wish you well:)
