My boyfriend and I broke up over religion and traditions. We were in a relationship for four years and a couple of months ago, both his parents and my parents made us break up with each other because both families believed that there was no future for us.
His parents didn’t want me as daughter-in-law because I did not want to wear a scarf and obei to their religion, and my parents felt the same about him. They said he might change his mind down the road and make me follow his parents commandements. Although we had tried for the past four years to get our parents to accept the other, they never did, which always led to arguments.
We continue to remain friends now and it breaks my heart every time I see him because I still love him immensely.
