Grv1011 asks: I am in a relationship with my love S. We both love each other and we want to marry, but her family is against me and my family. Let me explain in short but full story: 3 years of relationship; I had a friend in college, she and I were very frank, we even used bad words but just in a friendly way; My girl S read our messages and thought I’d cheated her, but she still loved me and stayed with me; after 2.5 year’s another friend of mine – she likes me and she was also my best friend – said she loved me a lot one day. Then she came to my city and asked me to meet. I was alone at home and refused. She kept requesting, and I accepted and ask her to come near to my home. But when i saw she was waiting outside my home with her elder sister (17) I got scared because my love S’s home is in front of my home. I thought her parents may have seen us and felt negative for me. I called her and asked her to come inside or go away; she came inside, stayed for a couple of minutes, and looked at my home – expect my room! One day I decided not to talk to her because I felt bad that my love may think or feel wrong. Then she called my girlfriend and lied to her that we had sex many times, in my room. But when I asked her about my room (conference call) she wasn’t able to describe it, since she never saw it. But then S believed her, and felt bad about our relationship. She stayed with me, but we fought daily. Then one day S’s cousin and his family told her parents about me and warned them to control S. Now they call her daily, blame her, and say she can’t marry me, because there’s no guarantee I won’t leave her, that they’d die first. So she’s frustrated, arguing with me all the time, and even talking about breaking up, and I’m afraid of losing her. Now please tell me, we both want to marry each other but these daily fights wear me down. Please reply with the solution. I want see her happy as we were.
Hi Grv1011 –
Wow, this is a crazy situation! And there are lots of other elements here (such as family issues), but biggest of all is definitely the lie this other girl told your girlfriend.
And I can only come up with one solution to that one – you need to get the two of them into the same room at the same time. NOT YOUR BEDROOM!
And I say that for two reasons – first, because asking them into your bedroom might look like you had something very different in mind!
But secondly, because for some reason, the fact that this girl couldn’t say what your bedroom looks like didn’t get through to your girlfriend. And you need to make it clear.
Now if you can do this, if you can prove to your girlfriend that it was this other girl who lied and not you, that will help a lot.
But I want you to do something else then, as well. You see, you were so worried about how things would look that you acted suspiciously. There’s nothing wrong with meeting up with a friend outdoors in front of your home, so why would you worry so much about it? If you hadn’t worried, if you’d just let it happen, then this girl might not have gotten in your front door, and it would be easier to prove things! And even more so, if your girlfriend and her family had seen you calmly talking to this girl, as though nothing was wrong (which is true), maybe they wouldn’t have gotten so suspicious.
So find a way to get that girl and your girlfriend together, to clear this issue up! And then, try to learn to relax more.
After all, being innocent ought to feel good, right?!
And then we can start to work on this whole family thing!
All my best,
