I recently broke up with my boyfriend of 4 years. We lived together and are in love. When he would drink, he would become verbally abusive. The last time this happened, I called my parents and they came to my house. He was so drunk and angry with me that he sad horrible things to my parents. I made him move out and we didn't talk for almost 3 weeks. We finally talked today and we both realized that we love each other and still want to be together. We just don't know how after everything that has happened that we can make our parents see that we are committed to each other. And my boyfriend doesn't know what to say to my parents and to be honest, neither do I. We want to make our relationship work, but we know we are going to have confrontation from our family members. How can we make ammends with everyone involved and make this relationship work?
