'We will marry someone else but still stay in touch'

Jun 27, 2013, 23:43 IST | Dear Diana

Dear Diana, I'm 25 and in love with a 27-year-old guy. We've been in a relationship for two years.

We belong to different castes. I belong to a family of strict vegetarians. We don’t even eat onions and ginger. While he is a hardcore non-vegetarian. Our families do not approve of our relationship and are looking at prospective partners. As we cannot go against their wishes, we have decided to stay in touch even after our marriages. Will this work for us?

Dear Sheena,
Good heavens! What a plan you have made. Right now it may sound exciting but it will spell doom for both of you. Remember you are indulging in an extra marital affair by doing so; you will be playing with fire and get ready to scorched badly. It will create havoc not only in your lives but also in the respective families. Instead, try and convince your folks. It will take time and a lot of persuasion but if you are in love you will have to get them on your side.

Diana will solve it!
