COIMBATORE: Depressed over their only daughter elo with a man outside their community, an elderly couple allegedly committed suicide at their house in Pollachi, some 35 km from here Sunday.

Now enjoy your honeymoon while your parents bodies burning, stupid selfish woman, you killed your parents there is no forgiveness under any life! Shameless creature...
Those who advocate such love marriage - pls die. You cannot be happy in ur life without first kee your parents happy
Caste is more important than own daughters life. Did parents do the thing? Ofcourse not
Daughter should have thought a while before taking any step after all parents are the people who sacrificed their life to see their beautiful daughter grow every step of her life and then daughter goes ag inst the parent wishes naturally they have taken this nasty step.
our Indian culture is not still ready like western culture were you can live with someone you love, if you don't like him dump him and live with another, this is common even in Indian families living in western world.
instead of suicide they have to kil* there daughter.
Lust has over ridden the daughterâ s life to ditch their parents nad shame has over ridden her parents life to kill themselves; as, if ahe really loved the boy (and her parents) truely she could have handled the situation gracefully. Real love does not need elo
Having to undergo the psychological stress of sering their only daughter marry a person from a different community is daunting no doubt, but not to the extend of giving up one's life over it. This happens when a person has misplaced priorities of community over life and children.

If the daughter knew the mental state of her parent, that was a mistake. she could have taken advice, and suggestions, and should have taken help of a psychiatrist, so that a "favorable to all" situation had arrived.
I really support her since it is her wish to choose her life. But as she is the only child of her parents it would be very easy for her to compromise their parents. so she has failed to think of their parents and that have brought this disaster.
