Is there a difference between 'arranged marriage' and pimping out your own child? I can't imagine being expected to have $ex with somebody against my own wishes.
I guess you are from India, it is probably in your families culture that you have arranged marriages. But it is you who has to live with the man after you have got married. Marriage is for life or should be. So I think you should talk to your partner now about your situation. Does he want to marry you too? Who have your parents chosen for you? Is he better than the one you have now? Maybe you should make a note of all the best qualities of the man you love and then talk to your parents and tell them that the man you love is probably the best of the two and will have more chance of being successful and then maybe your parents could still arrange for you to get married to the man you love. Then it is "theoretically" an arranged marriage.
Arranged marriages can work if agreed to and entered into freely with no coercion on either side.<br />
The problems in your situation are obviously, being in love with someone else is not giving you the impetus to enter into a parent arranged marriage.<br />
I think you have two choices, do as your parents wish, accept that in order to please them, you will not be able to please yourself<br />
Refuse the marriage, be with the one you love and be prepared to accept all the consequences of your actions.
if yu really love him...anyhow try to convinve ur family either through ur frens or their guardians or so !!all the best !!!
They can not pick him ir change to him if they do not know about him> Maybe you should find a way to let them meet him!
I would slow down, it's only been 3 months. I would also tell your parents about him..it's your life, not theirs, they can't use you as a means of gaining status any longer.
