Hello. I am a 19 year old girl and I am in a relationship for 4 years now. We both love each other very much, but the only problem is that our parents won't approve our relationship. They say that we can't marry each other, because we're from the same village back in India. Marrying someone from the same village brings a lot of disgrace to both of the families. Our parents are threating us and saying that they will murder us if we go against this. What do I do know?
relocate to another place or country. find a job or start a business and get lost from both of your families. love is more important. if your families want, they can contact you by skype. if not - let them go, build your new reality of love. If they threaten your with death, are they really people who love you? If not, why should you live close to people who are ready to murder you?
Well it seems like you guys really do love each other so do what makes YOU happy. Your parents can't threaten or murder you. Well not unless you call the cops which may sound ridiculous but I'm serious. Then again I doubt that your parents will do so going to such extreme levels. But just do it.
You're over 18, your parents don't control you anymore. You can do whatever you want to do, you and your boyfriend should be the only ones to make the decisions of your relationship. So, if you want to break things off, then so be it, all I have to say is a boyfriend is temporary, family is forever. Make your choice wisely and independently
At the end of the day, you can't live to please your family. You have to be happy, too. One day your parents won't be around, and you'll want to be with the person who makes your heart the happiest. Your guy might not be the ideal match in the eyes of your parents, but if they knew how much he makes you happy, they would love him, too. They might not love him for who he is, but they will love him for the smile he puts on your face.
