Parents won’t agree for me to marry who I want
I am a 29 year old female. I want to marry someone who is a relative and islamically i am permitted to marry therefore same caste and everything else which can normally be seen as a problem to family. But my family won't agree to me marrying him. I have been in this situation for 6 years now and feel as if my life is being wasted just waiting. His family have asked for the rishta many times and my family have accused them of all kinds of things even that they done some kind of magic to possess power over my mind which is ridiculous the simple reason is that I want to marry this person and he wants to marry me from a young age as we are relatives it's something we thought would not be a problem as normally our families encourage us to marry within the family.
I have spoken to all members of my family but feel like we are just going round in circles ultimately mine and his life and youth are being wasted whilst my family continue to be stubborn. My family continue to blackmail me in order to change my mind. I just want my nikah done with this man whom I love so that I can live my life according to the sunah but my family are restricting my marriage for no real reason. I don't know what to do - I have spoken to respected people from the community but they are good friends with my father and feel as though they don't want to get involved?
