Hi Writer, thank you for writing in. It takes great courage to reach out for help. Just to understand this better, would you be comfortable with me replying in English? You can continue to respond in Hindi if you feel comfortable.

It seems that you are facing difficulty in convincing your parents regarding the girl you wish to marry. I understand that it must be a difficult position for you to be in.

Firstly, I would appreciate the courage in you for being able to manage so far. I can imagine that this must not have been easy for you.

What have you done so far to convince your parents? What are their reasons for not approving this marriage? Does the girl you wish to marry also want to marry you? What has she done so far to get approval for this marriage?
Answering these questions will help me understand your situation better and enable me to guide you accordingly.

Secondly, how would you like me to help you with your situation? What is it that you are hoping to seek through this counselling process?
