Is it wrong for a Sikh boy and a Hindu girl to marry?
Worried that your parents do not approve of your marriage to a Sikh boy? Quickly get some useful advice and suggestions on how to deal with it amicably.
I and my boyfriend are struggling to convince my parents of our marriage as my parents say he is Sikh and they don't have trust in his family. He is 30 years old, working in a decent company and is planning for his own business. He lives with his parents and an elder brother who is divorced. He has two married sisters. We know each other since school days and he proposed to me in 2016. I am 31 and an only child. My parents have had some bad experience with this community and they gave me examples of such experiences, of cases of love marriage who went in for intercaste marriages and ended in divorce. My cousins are married but they don't want to get involved in this matter. My parents say if you still want to marry him, we will both leave this home and this stress will gradually kill us. They cry day and night and my dad's health is not good. My parents says you have to choose us or him. The boy still stands by me and wants to marry me. Please explain what I should do as I want both, my parents and my boyfriend whom I wish to marry. and live a happy life.
