Regardless of anything, family can be a right royal pain in the ass. And as an adult, family are people.
It might be a cultural thing for you guys BUT family are also obliged to show respect for other human beings – it seems to be a diminished case when other family members are concerned.
Sounds to me like both sets of parents need a kick up the ass and told exactly how destructive their own actions have been and will continue to be, on your relationship.
That said, your boyfriend sounds like he's got a level head, understands the situation and his response was in line with your development. Things are seemingly getting better and he's tracking the situation, with you in mind.
Keep understanding each other, keep communicating, make allowances, grow and tel your parents to piss off and leave you two to your own lives. It's happiness you're after – not a wedding ring.
