change what im trieng to say.Coeus: Do what?
A man has the right to marry whom ever he wants, if a women he must try to convert her, [MUST] = he has to try, and if he disagrees so be it live in peace
But parents like all parents get involved in marriages, i for one would let my mother have a say in my wife as my mother is more important than my wife, why? shes your mother -.-
In the end your parents should have the upper hand on your marriage, though its not a religious thing just respectful thing.
