Hello everyone, I'm in love with a Korean girl and we've been dating for over a year now. My parents don't know about any of this, both me and the girl wish to marry after finishing our studies. I'm not sure how to confront my parents about this, what I do know for sure is that they are completely against the idea of interracial/interfaith marriage. I'm worried that if I go through with the marriage, without their consent, that they might disown me and that I might disappoint them. I'm a very philosophical person, my girl not so much. However we both don't really consider ourselves religious, we both believe in whatever makes sense to us. My mother is also a philosophical person, we often have philosophical talk and debates. She "could" accept my girlfriend, but she would never openly tell me that she stands behind me on this one, it's like her hands are also bound by the cultural/family pressure. My dad on the other hand is hardly religious, he is more like religious just by name but he is strongly against interracial/interfaith marriage and wants me to marry to a Punjabi girl. I don't know what to do anymore. I believe a lot of people here will know what I am talking about, and most of you are also older than me. I was hoping that someone here could give me some advice.
