Break it Off?By NaseebSupport
About User: 27, MALE, South Carolina
I have been engaged to a cousin of mine for the last 5 years as the engagement was arranged by our parents. At that time I was OK with the decision and did not object. However my cousin lives in Pakistan and I haven't met her since the last 2 yrs. Last year I met someone who shares the same interests as me and is highly compatible with me. Lately I have been thinking of proposing to her and calling my previous engagement off but I am not sure if she would say yes. On the other hand, I'm pretty sure my parents will never speak to me again if I break it off with my cousin. I am confused as to what should be done since my marriage is scheduled for this June, for which we have to go to Pakistan. I have serious doubts that my cousin will be able to adjust here. I'll be honest and tell you guys that I do not love any of the women as yet, but the woman I met a year ago is very special to me and I am sure I ll be happier with her. But how to break the news to my parents and what to say to my fiancé? Any suggestions?
