My name is Mynah. I come from a middle class family. I was working as a junior resident in MMC when I got this marriage proposal. Bridegroom side had come to see me in my home. Lets call him Wahil. So myself and Wahil liked each other and marriage date was fixed. We both got really close through phone contact. I was wishing to pursue higher education after marriage in Psychiatry field. He seemed supportive. He used to encourage me to study hard. Later, after a month after my engagement, Wahil's mother one day heard about my future plan to be a psychiatrist. And she was against the idea. She insisted on stopping my pursuing of higher education as family life is important. Then she told that I should concentrate on cooking and household chores. Also I should look for a job near their home. She also went as far as telling me that I should get conceived soon after marriage as they are so keen to see their grandchild. Also there were so many other restrictions like how I should dress and all. One day he got a watch for my birthday, she got so jealous that she scolded me for taking gifts even before marriage. That they are traditional family and they dont tolerate all this. Another time me and Wahil had a fight over some simple matter and she scolded me very badly for making 'her baby cry'. I was very terrified to hear all these and I discussed about this with Wahil. But Wahil only said that he loves his mother a lot and he dont want to be on bad terms with her. And if I love him, I should make few compromises for him. He asked-"cant you give up your career for me? ". I was totally distressed and I sought my parents advise. As we are from conserved family, they advised me to adjust with inlaws and everything will work out in the end. I dont know what to do... Should I give up my career for him or should I leave him and pursue my career? Please advise me.. Thank you.
