To everyone who has been told that their partner is unacceptable to the family due to their religious/ethnic/cultural/etc background: Be with them anyway. Love them anyway. Plan your life with them anyway.
It can feel crippling when our families don’t accept the person we love but ultimately the decision is ours. It is your right to be with the person you love. Who you love is up to you.
You will be the person bearing the consequences of your decisions, not your mum/dad/sibling/aunty down the road etc.. YOU. If your family truly supports you, they will come around. And if they don’t, it’s better to find out now than to run away from the truth or live with the illusion of unconditional love.
