'My girlfriend belongs to a different caste'

Jun 11, 2013, 23:53 IST | Dear Diana

Dear Diana, I belong to an orthodox family. I am in love with a girl who is a software engineer.

She likes me too but the problem is she belongs to a caste which, according to my parents, is lower than ours. My mom doesn’t want me to let the family down by marrying her. I don’t know what to do. But I can definitely not marry another girl because I cannot think about any other girl in my life. To add to my troubles, even my girlfriend’s parents are forcing her to get engaged to a boy of their choice.

Dear Gulbis,
Which world do you live in? It is time you change your mindset. You and your folks seem to be still living in your narrow minded world. Such things are the least important in today’s world. You don’t want to upset your folks as the family’s honour is important to you. At the same time you can’t forget the girl and cannot ever think of having anyone else in your life. Dude, you need to wake up and take a call. If you want her to be your girl, speak up now. 

Diana will solve it!
