Must i break up?
HI
Im 21 Years of age...
Im dating this real GREAT guy for 7 months now. Only problem is, his christian and im muslim. Neither of us are willing to change for each other coz we both love our religions and respect each other too much.

Recently my parents has been pressurizing me to break up with him. And we dont want to. They are really controlling and im scared to say anything about it.
What should i do? Coz things with me and my parents arent so great right now. We constantly fighting and i hate every minute of it. I hate lying to them, but im so clueless i need HELP!!!!

Dear Roxy Chick,
Is lying necessary ? Maybe you're living at home, which might complicate things. But you are of adult age, and entitled to make your own decisions, so you are allowed to marry who you please, without parental consent. However, I understand that you would prefer their consent and support, and this may become possible. The situation sounds like it's complicated by other issues leading to discord between you and your parents, which also need to be sorted out.
