I Want to Get Married, but My Family Doesn’t Take it Serious

24 March, 2020
Q I am really stressed out. I don't have my parents and I stay with my uncle, my brother and nani (who is paralyzed).

I have my dreams which I can't fulfill. I told them I want to get married, but they are not taking it seriously.

I'm very stressed and have mental issues that affect my health.
