What would you suggest A (or anybody facing such or any other kind of prejudice) does?
I am a twenty six year old woman. For the past two years,my parents have been on the lookout for a suitable guy for me.I am well educated and from a financially sound family but dark complexioned. For this very reason I was rejected many times by the potential groom’s party and they always hinted at the reason of me being dark before calling it off. Each rejection chipped off some part of my self esteem even though I silently anticipated it after the meeting.
I am also wary of the fact that my parents have to marry me lavishly with a suitable dowry in order to keep the future in-laws happy. Earlier my parents were sympathetic and pitied me, but now, after two years of numerous meetings with different parties, their attitude is that of sarcasm and mockery, despite them knowing that it’s not my fault at all. My cousins who were fair and goodlooking found their own companions, were courted and proposed to before it culminating into marriage.
Is there anything I can do?
