Questions no. 15 and 18 refer to the following text.
I am a guy, twenty-eight years old. I have a problem with a girlfriend. She is twenty-five years old. We have been dating each other for years, since we were high school student. Now we have jobs. I feel very sure that we love each other. Now it is time for me to get married. Unfortunately, her parents never approve our relationship ever since the very first time. My family, anyhow, does not really mind. At first I thought my girlfriend had the power to defend our love. But then she surrendered. She loves me and she loves her family too. On the one hand she said, “I’ll be happy if my family is happy.” It means she had to get approval from her parents.
For this, I was shocked. My heart was broken. She ended our relationship just at the time when I was ready to marry her. When I was with her, we were very happy. We had a lot in common and there were no conflict. The truth was, we separated only because of her parents. They want her to marry her cousin, her aunt’s son (this is one of the traditions in the Karonese).
For the being I am very upset. When I miss her I call her. Then we can eat together, talk together. The real problem is, she cannot refuse what her parents want.
So, should I forget my girlfriend, the only one that I truly love? Or else, should I just wait, and dream that one day she will be back to me?
You call her your girlfriend, but she has chosen her own way. For this reason I’d say that there is nothing you can do except forget her and go on with your normal life. Hopefully you can find another love and life happily forever.
