My gf is not fat, but she's a bit chunky. She just bought a bikini for the spring that's not flattering. I'm not sure if I should say something or even how to do that. I'm not trying to fat shame, but ...

Only comment if she asks you, and then be VERY, VERY careful with what you say and how you say it. "How do I look?" is a scary question for a guy who wants to stay alive. :-)

How do we handle this? Our daughter is 17 and wants her bf to sleep over. We said no. She came back with the fact we have no problem with her uncle, my brother who is 28, bringing his gf over and they sleep together. What do other parents do?

Very simple. Practice this line without an explanation- "Our house, our rules." You don't need to defend your parenting practices.

My gf keeps saying she wants to lose weight but she keeps ordering food that is high in calories when we go out. I don't think I should be responsible for her weight issues but I also don't want to be an enabler. Do I say something to her or what?

No, you don't say anything now. You've already said what you need to. She, and she alone, is responsible for herself. You are not an enabler unless you order things that are not healthy.

My gf was adopted. People tell me it would not be good to marry and have children because she does not know her genetics. Is that something I should worry about?

That's an absurd ignorant comment from whomever said that to you. Especially now, you can get genetics easily. Lots of people who were adopted as children get married and are very successful and good parents.

My bf is from a different culture. My parents are giving me a hard time about that. I want to be respectful to them, but it's really getting in the way of our relationship. Any suggestions?

Ultimately, you are going to have to make a choice. In the meantime, all you can do is to sit with them (both of you), and explain how much in love the two of you are. Let them meet and interact with him.
