How can we convince our parents who are against our marriage?
Q: I am in love with a guy from the past 3 years. He loves me a lot too. We talked to our parents for marriage but they denied as we belong to different castes. Both of us don't want to go against our families to fulfil our dreams, so we decided to separate. But we are not able to live without each other. We cannot leave each other and neither can we get married without our parents' permission. Please help us to overcome this. How can we convince our parents for our marriage. It is almost impossible to live without each other.
A:What you are going through one can understand, as on one side you have your family emotions and on the other your feelings for your partner. I do agree, that if one goes against family, and if that affects the family relationships, it tends to also disturb the harmony of life. What I feel is that a consistent dialogue with the families, and communication about your feelings, and acceptance of their apprehension without any emotional outbursts is the only way one can make others understand.
