• Intercaste marriage

Me and my boyfriend have decided to get married. We both belong to different castes. I m a brahmin and he is a lingayath. My parents have agreed. The guy has tried to convince his parents from 2 years yet they are not agreeing. They try to threaten him everytime he tries to convince them. IS there a way in which the law can help us. We dont want to cause any harm to his parents either we want to go ahead and get married..
