Woman Seeks Advice After Her Boyfriend Of 2 Yrs Chooses His Family Over Her & Breaks Up

In India, a large chunk of the population is still conservative when it comes to love and relationships. They disapprove of youngsters dating and if they are made aware of a young member of their family dating, then they would often ask them to choose between their partner and the family. It’s a classic dilemma fueled by the age-old tradition of seeking parental approval for relationships. So, when push comes to shove, many end up saying goodbye to their romantic partners, all for the sake of keeping the peace at home.

For example, a second-year college student took to Reddit to share how her boyfriend broke up with her after choosing his family over her. His mother disapproved of his relationship with her and even though he was in a 2-year-long relationship with her, he decided to break up with her.

“Me and my boyfriend where having a conversation as his mother found out about our relationship. He said he can’t stay with me as his mother is strictly against love or love marriage itself, he said she won’t be convinced at all even if he tries to talk with her (sic),” she wrote.

Apparently, his sister was also in a relationship and had to break up with her boyfriend after her mother got to know about it. The guy said that he would have to marry the woman of his mother’s choice.

“He said that his mother wants him to marry a girl which will be chosen by her and he said he has to do it and he can’t go against his family at all. He said my family gave me a lot in my life all the freedom everything I only want to keep this one wish of hers, I don’t want to be a disappointing son. His sister also is against our relationship she doesn’t want us together as according to her ‘our family will never be supportive towards us in this matter you shouldn’t hurt that girl, you should leave her’ (sic).”

Even though the girl tried convincing him to continue the relationship, the guy thought it was best to break up because they would have to call off their relationship eventually.

“I made him understand to focus on our present now later on the future, jo hoga hum dekhenge but he said it’s better to break it off from now there’s no long term in this relationship which was the main factor of it and the relationship is in initial stage it won’t hurt much than staying together till the marriage age, that will hurt much more than this. So it’s better to break it off now (sic).”

Responding to her post, several people came to her support and said that it was better that the relationship came to an end early. They stressed that the breakup was a blessing in disguise and that if she continued being in a relationship with the guy, she would have found it very difficult to deal with his family.
