Brother doesn't want to get married
My brother doesn't want to get married. He is 40+. This is causing a lot of grief to my family, especially my mother. She doesn't want to come out in public, for fear of people asking questions about my brother's decision. My father had a stroke due to the same.
I tried approaching the subject with my brother several times, but am afraid he'll not change his mind. A lot of people have already tried and all efforts to convince proved vain.
I feel that he likes his independent,compromise and responsibilities-free life so much that he doesn't want any changes to it.
I want him to be happy and content, but at the same time I want him to also have an open mind towards marriage.
My parents are suffering from low self esteem; they feel that they did something wrong for going through this long-standing suffering.
I really wish somehow I can push a button to change my brother's mind and get him married. I don't know what made him make such a decision.
I am not even sure if he'll be forth coming with me about the reason behind it. He's highly learned man and really doesn't need any advice from anyone. He's also very caring and loving, good looking person.
How can I put an end to this ?
