Time to run. It might do you some good. You can lose som weight, look better and find a better guy for yourself.
Okay fucktard, let me break it down for you: -Forced marriage is when traditional parents want their child to marry someone no matter what, usually with little to no time spent together with the couple. -Said parents want OP to get married -Said parents have a boy for OP All those add up to the parents wanting her to marry this guy (or just get married in general, the specific person probably doesn't matter). Read between the lines, dumb bitch. Also, try it out? How fucking awkward is that? "Uh yea, hi. My parents think I should marry you. So... what's up?"
if ops Chinese then the parent would pretty much pick a group of chinese guys (or sometimes just one) the ones With status and good reputation/ wealth and set up lunches and let her meet them all and pretty much she'll have to choose one from the group and then when she marries she becomes a housewife and better hope to god you get kind in laws, or you just might live your life in misery.
o.O I didn't get the impression she didn't understood what it meant... and even if she didn't, it doesn't mean she has to like their traditions. If she didn't know what it meant, she would have said "today, my very possessive and strict parents." or something, at least she recognizes they are traditional and not just dictators. She may respect the tradition, but she can still hate the idea of it.
I got the impression that the OP was surprised that her parents had found a boy for her, and that marriage was something you could put off. I've known people from two different ethnic groups who had arranged marriages and in each case, the couple got to meet before the potential wedding and had veto power over it going forward. It's not like "Fiddler on the Roof" or "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" (huge tracts of land!)
Forced relationships? Is that even LEGAL?
That's harsh, an arranged boyfriend?? jeez
