A marriage doesn’t rest solely on love

I’m in love with a guy but the problem is that he is a Christian and I’m a Hindu. He is asking me to convert to Christianity. My parents are staunch Hindus and would never allow me to convert, neither do I want to change my religion. Even his mother was a Hindu but adopted Christanity as her religion when she got married. I promised him that I’m ready for a church marriage despite my parents’ disapproval, and I will raise our kids as Christians. I have explained to him about various provisions in the law that relate to marriages without conversion, but he pays no heed to it. I know that his parents will agree, but it’s he who has issues. His attitude towards me has been very suffocating, but I want to marry him because I love him. Of late, this issue has been troubling me. Please advise.

All surprises aren’t fearsome

I am a 36-year-old woman and soon going to get married to a man settled in the US. Do you think it is difficult to adapt to the western culture? It is bothering me because my friends doubt that I would be able to stay all alone in a country abroad. I’ll be honest to admit that I didn’t get much exposure in life because I never had a career. Somehow, I have developed serious self-doubts and I’m losing confidence too.
