My mum has made it absolutely clear she won't let me date let alone marry a guy from another country. I'm of an ethnic group in Iran (not Persian) and she expects me to marry someone of the same group. I said there aren't many in England and she goes well you can always go back home and marry someone from there. Help! I don't want to! I think I could get away with dating a guy from another country secretly but marriage will be a problem
A marriage is for you, not for your parents. Marry who you want to marry.
Don't all parents prefer if we married within our own ethnic groups/communities?
Forced marriage is illegal and I hope you know that and I hope you can educate your mum on forced marriage. She can't make you marry someone if you don't want to.
Thing is I don't have a great deal to say until I find a guy who's of a different ethnic group that I love and tell her about. Only then can I properly let rip about how old fashioned her views are and be with him anyway. If I say all this now, she'll just say why do you even care you haven't even met anyone from another ethnic group.
i told my girl shes my wife she doesnt need to marry me
