Name : Varsha
Ans : Dear Varsha. It's good to hear that you are working and are financially independent. I suggest you work on addressing your family's concerns. They are worried about your future and you have to find ways to reassure them. If you know of people with disabilities in your circle of friends or acquaintances who are married, I suggest you get them to talk to your family members. There are also many positive stories about inclusive marriages, where either one or both partners is disabled. You can look at this NewzHook report that you may want to show to your family - These couples are redefining traditional stereotypes of marriages
Good luck and be patient.
