Parents don't like DP - what can I do?

My parents have never really liked my DP, he is from a different background to mine and earns less, and has a child from a previous relationship - and I think they don't think he's suitable, relations are very cold etc. We now have DD (4 months) and have been going thru a rocky patch - DP is very stressed at work and has been taking it out on me thru being very snappy, difficult to live with. After a bad row at the weekend, I told my mum what was going on -DP and are now trying to work thru problems but now I feel bad for having told my mum, as she's got even more reasons not to like him. DP is also upset that I told my mum but it was such a bad row that I thought we had broken up and I had to get some support. Any advice?

Sometimes parents are wrong.

I don't think anyone's denying that sometimes parents can be wrong. If the thread was 'parents don't like DP' and the OP had gone on to describe some fabulous example of a human being without a nasty bone in his body then we'd all be saying that her parents were batshit crazy and she should go NC and all the rest. But even if you take the parents completely out of the OP's situation, the behaviour she's describing isn't exactly going to win this man any fans.
