Knowing that your father doesn't like your partner, still you pursue the relationship, and both you and your partner have been together for 3years long. Now that both of you have decided to get married and yet your father doesn't give his blessing, would you still pursue to marry your partner or you would dump him for the sake of pleasing your father?

You know what, these days it does not even matter. There are a lot of people out there who are not married and they like it that way. Yes, you can get married, but then if you get divorced, you realize to yourself "what was the point of getting marriage?"

The point of getting married is that you wanted to. Life happens, things don't work out. That doesn't make what you had less real or less valid.

I think you shud go on head with what your thoughts say. You love him and so do you.your dada will come around it slowly, but when you think of marriage, its like you gotta spend the rest of your life with this man, so you shud know more better than your dad.

i think you have to follow your heart. it seems you have some reservation as your dad is against it. But what to do. if you love him truly marry him.

my father and mother have married for nearly 30 years , when they got married , they didn't love each other and even didn't know much about each other , they live together and bring up my brother and i , they said they didn't have love feelings about each other , but they had responsibilities about my brother and i , and the family we live together. for these 30 years , they worked to support my family , even that some times they quarreled but they never thought about devorced , so i think they each other have special feelings to each other , it may be not romantic love , it is really a happy feeling .

i think if you two really love each other, your father will understand. it might not be soon, but i'm sure he will, esp when he gets a grandchild. but make sure you and your partner are emotionally & financially ready to take the plunge, so you won't have major problems later on, in which case you dad will go 'i told you so'. goodluck!
