And they began to ask what are they purposes fot the 2011 and my cousin said I want to marry this year and everyone congratulated and gave her encouragement. When they ask me I said I want to graduate from college this year aand all were silent. And I thought WT·$$··"???????

Hi. That was an interesting reaction of your relatives. Well, I guess marriage deserves congratulatory responses since it's one of the biggest decisions a person makes. But graduating from college isn't also a walk in the park. It's another milestone in a person's life, also worthy of congratulations. I don't know why they became silent, and I'm sure there was a reason, but whatever those reasons are, I still don't think they're enough for them not to excitedly react about your plans of graduating.

what you say is very true, the truth is that marriage itself is a big step and know I understand that, thanks

Strange reaction indeed. I don't know what to say about your relatives because I don't know them. But I'd sat that I don't like this kind of family events. It's normal to have different relationships with the members of your family, you may like or even hate some of them. But when they gather in the same place you can expect situations with strange behaviour. Maybe it's better to miss family gatherings:))
