'My parents detest my guy'

Published: 12 November, 2013 23:32 IST | Dear Diana |

Dear Diana, I'm 26 and working as a media consultant. I'm in a steady relationship with a guy who is doing well for himself, but my parents don't like him as he comes from a different state.

 They are pressurising me to leave him for a guy of their choice. I don’t want to lose my love for something as trivial as regionalism. Please suggest a way out.

Dear Ulya, 
Have you ever reasoned with your parents why they are frowning at your choice? He is from a different state and not from Mars! I am sure there must be more on their mind. Let them have their say and then reason it out. If you have made up your mind and are determined to marry him, they cannot stop you. At 26 you are mature enough to know what is right and wrong. If you want to seek their blessings, try and convince them. At the moment things are messy as everyone is sticking to their viewpoint. It would be better if you and your guy discuss it with your folks. I am sure they want the best for you.

Diana will solve it!
