I am a Brahmin girl in love with a Muslim guy. I am doing a doctoral degree. He is a doctor. We both are in love for 9 years. Now we are planning for getting into married life. His family accepted our love wholeheartedly but my parents are against for this. He is ready to accept me as I am. From his side, they are not forcing me to convert. They are okay with what I am. I talked to my parents many times and tried to convince them but they are very stubborn in their opinion. I tried my best to talk to them about himself and family. But they are considering only his religion, not the character and other aspects. They are telling that they need only a brahmin guy. They are telling that if you are ready to marry him then forget us and do whatever you want. Except for this issue, my parents are very friendly to me. They are god's gift to me. But in this issue, they hurt a lot but still, they did not hurt me with any words at any time. They are very affectionate to me and I am their world. But at the same time, I want to live with my love life. He loves me a lot. He is a very genuine and nice person. For many years we are waiting for my parents' permission. But they are not thinking about my happiness. I can't forget him and marry another person. I want to live with him with my parents' support. I can't hurt my parents' feelings also because they are very affectionate and I am an only child for them. I am in a big confusion between my parents and my guy.
