Q: I am a guy aged 31 years and have been in love with a lady who is not a Kenyan for 3 years. I bought her home two months ago and my dad was mad at me. He told me that he had high expectations of me and having a non-Kenyan as my wife is a letdown. I tried to explain but he told us to leave his home. Everyone tried to calm him but he said he does not want to hear from me again. I am stressed up. I feel like I failed my dad but I love my girlfriend. What should I do? Will my father ever accept my marriage?
