i am doing everything to keep my family together and i dont know what to do. my dad has been an abusive husband to my mom, physically in past and emotionally at present. my mom is a housewife who raised us, me and my sis up with love and care and be everything my dad is not. i grew up without any bad habits like smoking or drinking or anything. i found escape in books and movies and food. i am now 28yrs old and have everything to support my family but i am not healthy. i want to get fit before getting married but both my parents in india are trying to force me to marry this year. i dont want to be a laughing stock in my marriage and i want my time to build up the confidence. anytime i try to convince my parents to wait longer my mom cries for leaving her alone and my dad makes everyones life miserable. i dont know what to do to convince them 😭
Never, ever, ever rush to marriage because of family pressure. Guess what's going to happen if you do? They'll start demanding a grandchild, also a major life choice that should be up to YOU, not them.
