This is an imaginary story which might one day happen to me but i hope it will not. The story of a guy and a girl. The guy loved a girl and they were together for about 2 years. Then the girl told her parents about the guy she love. Her parent didn't like the guy because the guy's parents are divorced and because he is NOT the owner of some rich and big companies. Now the girl left the guy and they remain friends only. The girls parent will choose a guy for her. What is your opinion on this girl and about her decision?

Girl doesn't have her own decision for this affair,she was dictated by her parents and I guess she is not ready to have love or BF specially she is not ready of getting married.Else,their relationships will suffer soon.Good for the guy,I will not pursue loving her anymore,yes if you love somebody you can do all the things to fight for it,but in here the girl choose her parents decision ( only like money ) and I don't like to have that kind of in-laws.Thank you.

You are right. This is just an imaginative story...but I know it happens to lots of people. Woo i hope it doesn't happen to me. Coz even my parents are divorced and I am not a millionaire lol. Well but my ex girlfriend's parents didn't liked me because my parents are divorced and i live with my mum since i was 2 years old! So this is one of the reasons my ex girlfriend left me. But now i realise that my ex girlfriend and her parents are just narrow minded people.

No i would not abandon my love. Those are not good enough reasons for my parents not to like him and it effect me. Plus i would in no way want my parents to pick a guy for me especially if i had already found someone i loved.

Thanks for the reply. Well its good to see that you can make your own decision but there are still people who are so stupid to let others decide for themselves lol.

the girl is a gold digger and the young man is lucky she ditched him when she did. her dicision sucks but he is wise and will find the right girl for 'himself.

that is a very lame reason for the gilr to leave her BF... i won't do that if i were in her position... sounds to me that the girl's parents are very materialistic and try to control the girl... i would like to have my own opinion and decision when it comes to choosing my life partner as i am the one who will spend the rest of my life with the man... i won't let my parents pick for me and fortunately, my parents didn't do that to me... take care and have a nice day...

Well I believe that everyone takes a decision only by his/her will. So saying that the girl decide to dump that guy b'coz of her parent's pressure will not be true. I mean her parents may have an opinion against that guy but the impostant thing is whether the girl actually loved that guy or she was also not sure of her choice. Its only that she herself wanted the riches and property along with love, and "parent's decision" is just a safe excuse of getting rid of that unwanted relation.

Ok here is my first question: What country are they from? Are they from the U.S.? It always boggled my brain when rich, snobby parents would chose a person for their children to be with. To me, people like that are basing relationships on money. Am I saying that it doesn't matter if the person is poor or not? No. However, it is not everything. I was with a man who gave me money, bought me gifts on my birthday, mother's day, Valentine's day, Christmas, etc. but I wasn't happy with him for the way he treated me and just yesterday he said how he would love t oget me back and it's been 8 years and 3 months. Money might be able to bring security but will it be worth it if she is not happy? I believe in choosing my own mate and will follow my own heart.

Ofcourse not, coz girl was never in love. if she was in love she would have not think of her parents decission or her own decission. She would have always think of loving him and marrying him. but as she didnt know that she was just in affection she agreed on parents decission and left him When you are in love you dont see background. and when you think of background you dont continue to be in love, at least not for two years

I hope that never happens to you as it would be a hard decision to make. Why would the girl abandon her love if her parents didn't like him. That seems like a stupid reason to not stay with someone just because of his parents and him not being rich. Now if he was dangerous or something it would be a different story.

I think this problem is less personal and more cultural in nature. In many countries it is still the parents who arrange for their children in matters relating to matrimony. I know of someone who was very young and was arranged to marry somebody that his parents wanted. He could not take it so he went away on a boat thinking he would go to America. He ended up in the Philippines where he married a young girl and had many children. He was very courageous but not everyone can do that. People have to change with the times.

As the girl postition,I think, she must thought she already made a right choice for herself, who can blame her? For she must love her guy unenough for her to spend her whole life with him, so she choosed what best for herself,it's natural.

I think its very normal scenario that happens very often in India. I think i do not support this. money can't be the main thing in love. when there is true love, these things should not be considered.

It's her decision and it should be respected but if I am in that situation I will not abandon my love.I will not waste that 2 years just because of that.I wll not let my parents hinder my happiness.
