I am a **Roman Catholic Syrian **girl belonging to Kerala, India.
I am currently involved in a relation with a **Bengali hindu **guy
from Delhi since 3 years.We love each other a lot and want to get married.
We have a major problem in getting married as my side parents will not
co-operate/support if we dont get married in the church…They are not forcing him to continue as a christian later…
I have a younger sister coz of whom my parents want my marriage to be conducted in a church to avoid any problems
in her marriage later.Otherwise my family likes him as a person.
His dad is no more and his mom is staying with him…so he cant leave his mom or think of a marrige without
her consent…cos he cant leave his mom alone…and his mom is not happy in allowing him to marry in a church.
and also little bit unhappy thinking i am forcing him to be a christian.
His family do not want him to convert to christianity
and are ok with my remaining christian after marriage, and so I do not need to convert to hinduism.
Iam a religious person and so is he …but we both are not very adamant in converting the other person.
We have agreed upon both of us continuing in the respective religions.
I am also willing to get married in Bengali hindu way, and ready to
do any pooja’s as per their process for marriage.( conversion/rejection/sin in my religion)
But as far as i know he has to convert to christianity
so tht church agrees to conduct our marriage. I personnaly feel bad
to ask him to convert to christianity and continue in tht.
He is strictly not ready to convert. In this situation, can please
someone help me out…has anyone before had a similar situation ?
Does anyone know any churches in Banglore/any other city who had
conducted christian marriage without the guy geting converted?
i believe he guy will have to get baptised to get the permision
from the church for a marrige in any Roman Catholic church…and my boyfriend is not willing to
do that saying he will loose his identity…Am i wrong in asking him to
get baptised to marry me?(baptism means getting enlisted as christian in a church and that amounts
to conversion in indian/hindu law?? or if a guy gets baptised, is he converting to christianity?)
But later follow his own religion as even i am
not particular in him continuing christianity after geting baptised
for marrige. I am also willing to get married in Bengali hindu way, and ready to
do any pooja’s as per their process for marriage.I may also be rejected
from my caste but i believe if we marry in both ways, we will be accepted
in the society.
Please help me regarding this
