I recently got engaged to my long time girlfriend. The two families are more than happy for us. Unlike most love affairs, we did not have to go through the troubles of covincing our parents about our relationship. However, the parents now happen to disagree with us on the way we wanted to get married. They have already started to prepare for a big fat Indian wedding. On the contrary, we want our wedding to be a simple affair; a court marriage followed by dinner. We both don't understand the rationale of spending so much money to please the society. More importantly, we don't want to enter into a marriage penniless. We both are having a tough time convincing our parents for this. Help!
Court Marriage: Why not?
