How to Persuade Mom for Love Marriage

You cannot control whom you love for and when you do, it is only natural to feel the urge to spend your entire live with them. However, things are not always that simple. Once you have fallen in love with a girl and want to get married to her, you will have to convince your mother as well, especially if she is one of those women who have more faith in the success of arranged marriages, a thought that is common in Pakistan and India. If you handle the situation properly, you may be able to persuade your mom into letting you get married to the girl you live.

    Invite or bring your girl over to your house in order to introduce her to your mom in case she is a stranger. Be sure to give a proper and complete introduction, telling you mom exactly who she is, how you met her, what she does, etc. If she is an old friend that you mom has already met, then have her come over for lunch or dinner so that she is there to help you persuade your mom about letting you get married to her.

    Tell your mom why you love the girl and why you want to get married to her. Be honest about your feelings since it is your mom you are talking to and she deserves to know the truth about your feelings. You should also allow your girl to talk to your mom while the discussion is active, so that she can support your point of view. She might add something to your point of view that would get your mother persuaded.

    Leave your girl alone with your mother for a while so that they can talk to each other more frankly. Both your girl and mother may be reluctant to talk freely in front of you, which is why you should leave them alone for a while.

    After the girl leaves, sit down with your mother and ask her how she feels about the girl. Patiently listen to what she says. If you do not agree with your mom’s point of view, do not interrupt rudely. Wait for your turn to speak and then express your own views.
