Will you elope?

August 2, 2010 7:30am CST
Lets say you are in love with a man and both of you want to get married but your family disapprove and wants you to break off but at the same time you know he is the right man for you. His family is okay with the two of you. Will you consider eloping even after you try to reason with your parents and being patience with them for many years hoping that they will change their mind?

I think that's not a good idea, why not try another plan. Like taking risk by showing to them that they have a wrong judgment to your boyfriend. Let them learn to there mistake like proving that he's not the kind of guy that there are thinking. Eloping might make the situation worst, most of the time parents will blame the guy for doing such actions. So to prevent this from doing simply show to the world that you really love each other. After all they said that love will conquer all so somehow hopefully their anger will subside.

I won't elope with the person even if I love him dearly because we won't have a successful life if the blessings of the elders are not with us.I ll try to convince my parents more but I can't go against my parents.

hi... i will answer this question but i want to take consideration first some factors..., do you or your partner has a job? or if not.., can you financially support yourselves once you did elope?? if you can.., it is okay..financially speaking..but will you take consideration of what will other people say? or how much your parents will be disappointed and hurt?? but if you love this guy more than you love your parents.., it still depends on you..as long as you will be happy..just make sure you will not regret your decision in the end...=)
