By the time I turned 40 I started looking after my parents, not the other way around. I think that has a large influence on my being able to not give a shit what they think... I also tell them virtually nothing about my life now whereas when I was being taken care of by them in my younger years I felt obliged to let them know. I felt they were my mummy and daddy and that they should know what I am doing. Somewhere along the line that ends in favour of "its none of your business, I am an adult." For me it was when I was about 25. I moved out west, got a girlfriend and I changed some how.
If you are not able or willing to walk away then it is likely not meant to be yet. There is something to be learned here and you haven't finished experiencing being with him. Sounds like just living it until its done is the only way to go.
