Our expert says:
No family ought to be able to STOP someone from breaking an engagement, or making other decisions in their own life --- it's not the family's right. They can advise against it and give reasons, but shouldn't interfere in such a way. A forced marriage like this, between two such unhappy people is likely to fail and to cause greater suffering to both of them. Both should, rather seek individual counselling, and postpone deciding on marriage --- which should never be done to satisfy the parents rather than the two individuals involved. Blaming yourself won't help you or him or her. Work with your own shrink on your own issues.
