Answer
Hi Mahesh

I see you have a difficult cultural problem which I am not really qualified to answer.

In my culture man and a woman make the decision to marry. It would be unusual for the family to interfere or a pastor to interfere unless there are serious issues that need to be addressed before a marriage should take place. They form a close relationship during courtship and engagement and have the opportunity to discover if there are personality flaws that will cause problems. I think it might be different in your culture

A Pastor has a responsibility to guide you. Choosing a marriage partner should not be for superficial reasons. By all means choose a partner who is pleasant looking and has a pleasant disposition but be guided by God
