Not sure if this is the right spot or not, but I posted on the just engaged board & while they were comforting, many of them didnt really know how to respond..
My fiance & I are newly engaged, & his parents are having a fit. I'm white, and he's Indian. They say were too young, were rushing (we've dated for 6 years, so were NOT rushing by any means) and they keep saying "is she ready for the Indian way?" they wont elaborate any further on what that means though & what they expect.
I understand there are cultural differences, but I am more than willing to accept them. We told them we'd like to do two ceremonies to honor both our families, but nothing seems to appease them.
Should I just adjust myself to the fact that since I'm not Indian, I'll never really make them happy? Or is it possible for them to eventually accept me? do any of you have advice for dealing with old-fashioned parents?
Any advice is appreciated...thanks in advance!
