[Advice Needed] Mother won’t give her consent because my fiancée is light-skinned! What do I do?

Dear Tee,
My mother doesn’t like my fiancee, she said ladies that are fair in complexion are always promiscuous. I don’t know where she got this observation from. I love this girl so much and I don’t want to lose her. She knows my mom doesn’t like her and she is always asking me for the reasons, but I never opened up to her. I see a great future in us and I don’t want to let her go. Can I go ahead and marry her without my mother’s consent?


Dear O.A.,
I would not advise you to marry without your parents blessings. I think you should talk to mom about it, make her see reasons why you think she is the right one for you. Let her know she is a different person and discuss with her the attributes of a good wife that you saw in the lady which therefore qualified her to be that special one for you. Hope this helps.
Wish you well.
