How to Start a Conversation With Your Parents
If your parents want the best for you, they will ask your opinion as to when, who, or if you want to get married. If they do not and if you feel you are able to approach your parents without putting yourself at risk, then sit down and have an open conversation with them stating your reasons for wanting to be a part of any decisions regarding any possible marriage. Listen to their concerns, suggest alternatives, and reassure them of your intentions.
If you feel your parents may not be open to having such a conversation, seek the help of a trustworthy family member or friend who can help you to share this information with your parents, only if it is safe to do so.
