AITA for asking my girlfriend to lie to my parents for the rest of her life?

That seems to be an emotionally reasoned and neurotic way to analyze the situation. Indian girlfriend in college hid our relationship from her parents for 4 years (am white). I never took it personally because it had nothing to do with me. She always told me that we’d tell them once we graduated and got engaged... until she had a sobbing breakdown and broke up with me because “they’d never accept you” a couple weeks before graduation. Good times. If saying “yup we’ve never sexed” is all it took to make that work, I would have sworn up and down to be as pure as a fresh mountain snow. Getting so wrapped up in your emotions that you make decisions that go against your interests never made sense to me. Still doesn’t.
