    One of my close friends who is an amazing guy wanted to marry a girl (the girl is okay with marrying him) so he asked his parents to go and meet the girls parents to discuss about marriage. However the girls parents denied it because he's pakistani and she's afghan. Why are they so narrow minded? this just makes me upset as they probably won't be able to get married now. :-(

    That's just how they grew up thinking, and there's no point trying to convince and persuade people who have those mindsets cos it's like a deep tree root going back from childhood upbringing, it can be annoying but the more we resist accepting that's just the way a lot of people work the more anger and resentment we feel and that ain't worth it imo, they can still get married if they were desperate though, where there's a will there's a way, just got to be strategic

    It is sad, but if they are really determined then nothing can stop them from getting married. If it's supposed to happen, it will regardless of what her parents say and do about the matter. Unfortunately, this is a common issue in Asian cultures with strict parents/family.
