I don’t know how to tell my father I want to marry

Since I have started working he always doubts me and feels I am up to no good when deep down I am really not. I still cannot find the way to tell my dad that I want to get married because I would only get a response which would be criticism and he would most likely want me to leave.

The only thing holding me back from accepting his proposal is his lack of education

My mother just told me that this winter when we go to Pakistan she wants my nikah to be done. I know who the guy is and I have known him and his family since about 1994 if not earlier. We grew up togather and I am best friends with his younger sister. His entire family loves me. As for him, Im pretty sure he likes me- we get along, talk etc. The only problem is education. I only have 3 more semesters left to get my BA (USA citizen) but he didnt even go to college. Other then that he does have a job in Pakistan and people are just naturally attracted to him (meaning he is really outgoing etc).
