Dear Writer, thank you for writing in. I understand you are going through a difficult time. You want to marry your long time boyfriend whom your parents don't approve of. You don't want to elope although your boyfriend is ready to take that step. You find yourself caught in the middle and are feeling pressured.
To understand you and your situation better could you please tell me more about yourself and your boyfriend as individuals?
How is your relationship with your parents and is there a reason for your parents disliking your boyfriend?
Is this situation making you feel anxious?
Please message back to continue discussing. I am here to help. Regards
