Family or Love?

by confused girl

i live with my family (mother and two sisters) who are people I could never ask more of, however we have had a family ups and downs in the past 5 years, but like I said, that's the past. I love my family but I also like somebody else too. I have been with my boyfriend for 8 months now and things are going great. He makes me happy, he cares and I know he would do anything for me as I would for him.

On the other hand, I can't be with him or I shouldn't be with him because my family believes that we should only be with someone who is the same kind as us. Since we are Hindu, my mother would not be happy with my boyfriend because he is welsh.

One of my sisters had a boyfriend who is a muslim and she told my mother about him and she wasn't happen and told her to break up. But 5 years later, my mother is now happy with the idea of them being together. I'm happy for my sister.

It's not my fault who I like, and to tell you the truth I really do like him.
So my question is: what do I do? Should I stay with him behind my mothers back like I have been or should I tell her and risk what I have with my boyfriend?

When I'm at home, I feel like I shouldn't be with him, but when I'm with him, I couldn't care less about my mother and I'm in a different world where I want to be with him.

So is it my family or my boyfriend? Please tell me your thoughts and be honest please!

I think that you should tell your mother and listen to what she has to say. Hear her out, but go with your heart because if she really loves you as her daughter, she'll approve simply because you are happy.
