7 Mind-blowing Ideas to Convince Your Parents for Love Marriage
Marriages in India are considered as a sacred tradition. Be it the aged people or the youngsters, marriage holds a very respectable place in everyone’s eyes. But because of an age difference between the youth and parents, both often have contradictory ideas for marriage. If youngsters have an open sky to fly high, some parents restricted themselves into the chains of tradition, culture, religion, society etc.
And when children of such parent’s want to get married to the choice of their girl/boy, the argument begins. This is where a proper communication comes into the picture.
So, if you are looking for a way out to convince your parents for love marriage, here we go!
Find a right time to talk to your parents:
Start your conversation when your parents are in a happy mood. Avoid discussing your love life when you feel your parents are irritated, exhausted or tensed. Talking in a happy mood helps your parents to better understand you.
Draw the attention of your parents to the reason, why you love him/her:
Make a list of what you love about your partner and why you want to marry him/her. This creates a positive impression on your parents. Emphasize that you really like your partner and you want to stay happy with him/her.
Make your parents meet your partner:
Be open and honest with your parents and request them to meet your partner once. This will help them to make a clear image of that person before taking any decision for you.
Try to convince any one of your parents first:
Don’t just go for convincing both. As there is a saying ‘Slow and steady wins the race’. Try to win one mind first. This will help you in winning over the next mind and will also avoid overlapping of both mind’s opinions.
Go easy. Don’t lose your temper. Arguments, fights, loud voice will worsen the situation and will create a negative impact on your parents. It will show your immaturity. Instead, try to balance both your love life and your parents by showing your love and concern towards both. This will make them think that both are important in your life, and you don’t want to choose anyone over other.
Show some examples of successful love marriage:
Try to discover the best love marriages that have survived brilliantly through the ups and downs of life. This will help you to prove your point in a better way.
Let both the family’s meet:
The most important thing you need to do is to create a comfort zone between your partner and your own family. And when your family starts liking your partner, it’s time to arrange a meeting of both the families. Take everyone out for a lunch or a dinner and let them have some quality ‘FAMILY’ time discussing each other.
It’s tough to convince your reserved and orthodox parents, but remember it’s not impossible. During the whole process, you need to be very patient, optimistic and have to understand what your parent’s feels. Every parent wants their children to stay happy and blessed.
We do understand that marriages can give a lot of stress to anyone, but all you need is a proper advice and guidance to solve your relationship issues. What matters, in the end, is children understanding the fear of the parents.
