Sir, I love a guy and we are in a relation from last 8 years. We both are self dependent and working, my father is dead against him (he thinks he is not right for me) and even tried to commit suicide 3 months ago, problem is that I am madly in love and can’t even imagine marrying anyone else, nor I can see my father dying. How can I convince my father? Now I feel like committing suicide.

Your father might have tried to emotionally pressurize you by attempting suicide. You can pressurize him by deciding not to marry anyone else and that too after he gives permission. This stand you should take only after all your efforts to convince him is over. You may take help of someone who can convince him or to whom he listens.
