I don't know if this is in the right place to ask this question.
I am 27 years old and I live with my fiance. Everytime I happen to meet my friends and my parents are around, or whenever my fiance meets my parents, my parents start ridiculing me. They start telling stories of when I was still a child and twisting tales to make me look stupid and like an imbecile.
Whenever I confront them they become verbally abusive and they spend days on end not talking to me just because I stand up for my rights.
Why is that? Why do they act the way they do?
