A little background: I'm a Pakistani girl and in my culture and community everyone just HAVE to be married off. If they're not then something is said to be 'wrong' with them. Lets just say the treatment is cruel. Sure the black sheep treatment is way more intense on a girl than on a guy, but it's there.
I have a sister older than me by 2 years. Ever since she reached the marriage-age my mother, her friends and our extended family are all talking about her upcoming nuptials. Oh congrats are not in order yet. For now mom is looking for potential husbands. Occasionally some families come over to visit and my sister dresses up and makes an appearance. The usual. I hope she gets married or else people will start nagging mom and my sister, wondering why she isn't, gossiping and spreading vicious rumors, as is usual in Pakistani families. My sister is a lovely person and I hope the very best for her. Everyone else can shove their comments up their ass.
Now the problem: Fast forward two years and copy paste all that here, except replace sister with Me. My mother's ultimate mission in life is to have her daughters married off as soon as possible so she can 'unburden' herself. Unfortunately for her, I'm gay and I have no intention of getting married. My inevitable -for her - marriage is brought up every alternate day. I'm ignoring it for now, but not for much longer. God. The pressure is horrible. And I know for certain that this is going to get ugly. What can I do till then? Can I soften the blow somehow, Set boundaries? What??
