Get married and tell parents it’s done now, there is no option. This was after years of waiting and drama , literally Bollywood style .Strategy a close friend followed. Both sides of the families fell in line within a year even before they had kids. After the kids no one even talks about the past now.

10 years relationship, married last year. If both of you feel that eventually the parents would approve, it’ll be worth the wait. In our case it took about 3 yrs for them to accept. Life after that will be much smoother :)

Got married about a year after their acceptance. As I said, once that’s in place, everything would be jovial with families themselves being excited about the Union.

What’s the reason parents are hesitant to approve? It takes time if you both think there’s a long term.

That’s crazy - people need to start thinking beyond money. Rooting for you guys

Tell him where you stand and force his hand. It’ll be a sign of what your marriage will be like based on how he responds. If he gives in to his parents negativity then leave. Why go through that? Loving your parents doesn’t mean obeying their idiotic wishes.
