'Should I tell her about my medical condition?'

Introducing Dr Love, who solves your relationship riddles in a confusing digital age

I have a medical condition that I am embarrassed about, but I haven't told my girlfriend about it because I'm afraid she may leave me. Should I tell her?

I don't know what the condition is, but your doctor should have a better idea of how serious it is and how you can be cured of it. As for your girlfriend leaving you, I'm pretty sure withholding any kind of information that has a bearing on your relationship is a bad idea in the long run. If she leaves you, it may be a blessing in disguise, because why would you want to be with someone who can't accept you the way you are?

I want to marry someone at some point, but I'm still in college and my parents are already considering potential matches. They don't even want to consider the possibility of my marrying someone I choose. I tried speaking to them about it, but they don't want to listen because they tell me I'm too young to decide what my life should be like. I'm 22, so I don't know what they mean. Do I wait until I turn 30 before I am allowed to make my own choices? I love and respect my parents, but I don't understand why they are so rigid about something that is of such importance to my future. What can I do about it?

There's nothing much you can do about it if you don't want to confront them, but there's also nothing they can do to force you into a marriage you aren't comfortable with. You are legally allowed to marry anyone of marriageable age that you choose to. Having said that, you can always agree to what your parents say, in principle, but choose whom you want to marry and when, depending on when you feel like it. You're 22. I'm sure there are more important things you want to focus on at this point than settling down with a complete stranger.
