Dear Dr. Sabrina,

I am really struggling with my family and felt like maybe sharing my issues could help me as well as others. First, let me start with the fact that June in PRIDE Month and I am a proud gay man. I finally came out to my family 4 years ago. Since, I shared my truth I have lost so much. The biggest is the relationship with my mother. She is an evangelist in the church and only talks with me about how I am going to hell. She says that she will never accept my truth which has led to the complete breakdown of our relationship. Now comes the major issue, I am in a committed relationship with the Love of My Life. He has asked me to marry him and I said YES!!! I did share with my mom and she has become even more mean. I attempted to simply introduce my sweetie to my mom and she would not even say Hello. She told me that she just could not get past the perversion of our lifestyle. My question is because she is so upset should I postpone my marriage to give her more time to come to terms with it. I love my mother and hate this is tearing us apart. HELP!!!!!
