My mother dislikes my less-educated guy...

Sep 21, 2012, 07:01 IST | Dear Diana

Dear Diana, My boyfriend and I are both 26. We both love each other and are planning to get married soon. My only problem is that I am a graduate while he is just a SSC passed

My mother feels as he is less educated than me, there will be problems. I don’t know how to convince her because we truly love each other and don’t let the educational disparity come in the way.

Dear Laila,
There are many couples out there where the wife is more educated than the hubby. There is no problem in such cases except when the wife earns more and the husband who earns less feels intimidated. Also, there are so many SSC passed who can directly graduate through correspondence courses from various varsities across the country. Your guy, too, can complete his graduation in this manner. I can understand what your mother is saying. When it comes to marriage, people want to know what the guy has studied and doing. So she is trying to stike a word of caution.
