I have a personal problem and I would like some advice or opinion on a situation that gives me a lot of pressure. I live in France so forgive me for my bad english.
Very soon I will finish my studies and probably after a couple of years I intend to get married. Me and the girl I plan to marry are not engaged yet. We've known each other for a long time and the both of us want to get engaged after we both finish our studies. My parents still don't know about her, they only know that we are very good friends.
Recently, however, we discovered that she have a fairly serious illness. This has not changed my plans and I still intend to marry her and have a future with her.
Soon I will have to talk about my intentions to both abouna and to my parents. What I'm afraid of is how my parents will take it, because of the disease problem. I don't think they would take it well. Not with regards to the girl, whom they know and i think they would accept without problems, but with regards to her illness. They, like every parent, would like the best for me, and they might not accept it. I don't even know if I should talk about it with them, as this is a personal matter of the girl, but keeping it hidden from my parents doesn't seem like a good idea, because it could bring problems in the not so distant future.
As I said I will talk about it with my father confessor to seek guidance, but I also wanted to hear other opinions of people that I don't know who can give an objective opinion.
Thanks for reading and pray for me. Any advice or opinion?
