Dear Jasmin,

Thank you for your letter which I received last week. I must admit that you are not the only one to have this problem. I will try to help you make a right decision.

You wrote that you will have to choose between your parents and your boyfriend. I think that you should choose your boyfriend. It does not mean that your family is not important but you ought to remember that it is your life. You know what is best for you. You claim that you love your boyfriend and it does not matter that he is poor. You want to spend the rest of your life with him. Do it! The most important thing on the world is to be happy. Sooner or later, your parents may accept him. Everything will be okay.

Yours sincerely,
