Parents Disapprove of Living With Fiance

Group Therapy: Parents Disapprove of Me Moving in With Fiancé

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

I am in a long-distance relationship with my fiancé while I attend graduate school. We are finally in a position where he could move down here with me, but we can't get married until this summer. When my parents found out they were very upset. 

Both are very religious and are insulted by the idea of their daughter "living in sin." It would have a pretty big stigma with my entire family and hometown community. Also, when I went to graduate school, my parents bought a condo in the town that I live in and pay rent. So the idea that we would be living together in their condo . . .

Anyways, I'd appreciate some insight on how to communicate to my parents that this is something that is going to happen, and how to handle the potential fallout.
