I am in a relationship with a guy since 9 years. Though it was clear since the early years that we did not have a future together since we are of different religions, it has become very difficult for me to accept the separation. He does not want to take a stand and I am unable to cope. More so, i weirdly still am hopeful about it. We have talked about it several times and i have tried every method to try and convince him but his answer remains the same. This process is taking a huge toll on my mental health especially when my family is looking for prospects for me. I am unable to get a closure for myself and move on.
