Sadly, her parents are under the impression that we are like brother-sister! How do I tell them know what’s going on between us?

Dear Sagar,
You have to speak up and let them know the truth. Sooner or later the cat will be out of the bag. What if they find out from other quarters or you get caught redhanded? Have you thought of this scenario? I suggest you either tell them or any other elder in the family your girl is comfortable or has a rapport with. If you’ll plan to marry, do not waste any more time in breaking the news. They feel you are brother-sister because of the act you have put on. Drop the facade and they too will perhaps realise what is going on.

Diana will solve it!
