One of my friends is in a relationship and her family is against it. But she is stubborn with her decision to get marry to that person only. She even attempted to cut her vein. Is there any possible solution for this problem?

Hello, I am glad that your

Hello, I am glad that your friend has a strong supporter in you. If your friend has recently tried to harm herself, this is not a good time for her to consider marriage or any other serious decision. She would benefit from counseling to help her put all of these issues in perspective. I'm uncertain why her family is against her current relationship. They may feel she is too young or they may feel that her boyfriend has the potential to be abusive. Alternatively, they may be against the relationship because of a cultural issue. Regardless, you, your friend's family and her boyfriend must all prioritize her mental health right now. Sometimes, encouraging the boyfriend to spend time with the family helps ease their disapproval as it gives them time to see the love he has for her. Encourage your friend to seek counseling - including family counseling if possible - and find some healthy, relaxing outlets for her stress.
