Imagine that all that you have shared with me is something that your friend is sharing with you.
What will you tell her? To forgive this person for their hurtful behaviour or to take charge of her life and do what’s right for her?
Have you thought of how much this must be messing with your mind and to not want to meet your parents with no real reason; is he even serious about the relationship?
And further complicate it by being with other women (I assume that this is something that you have evidence of) is disrespectful towards you and the relationship.
Doesn’t this prompt you to make a decision that brings back your peace of mind and allows you to be free to live life with more dignity and joy?
Be right by you and love yourself!
You need to focus on how you can marry the person you love and also have your parents support you.
Is this possible?
There is a chance only if you take them into complete confidence and appeal to their logic.
Many societies are still against inter-caste marriages and I am sure they have their reasons for it, just like your parents have strong reasons to oppose the marriage.
Have you tried to find out why they oppose it? Are they worried about how they will face your family members as this is a big thing across cultures in the world?
As their daughter, you have connections with them as well as the right to live your life your way. Bring in an elder member of the family and ask him/her to appeal on your behalf. If this doesn’t work, you might be forced to decide one way or the other.
Whatever you do, do it with conviction and maintain relationships along the way. It may be an uphill task but breathe, smile and live life.
All the best, Happy 2022!
