Hey,I read what you are feeling, and knowing that you cannot continue what you want to do must be frustrating, but you should let go of your education and the will to seek knowledge in midst of getting married.At the age of 17, Yousafzai was the youngest Nobel Prize recipient ever. She was also the second Pakistani and first ethnic Pashtun to be awarded a Nobel Prize. All that was possible with a calm and 'Can do' attitude. How did she do that, by sheer perseverance and the attitude of wanting to do it.I suggest you must and should go for it and have a conversation with your parents about wanting to pursue studies, because if you want to do it, then do it and explain your father with a male's perspective stating that you don't want your daughter to be independent, you want your daughter to be looked upon in society. I'm asking you to not end your quest for knowledge.Hope this helps, Meanwhile we are always here to listen to what you have to say so  write back to us and talk in depth about it so we can better help you out with this. Please pursue the quest for Knowledge, no matter what.Thanks.
