When he told me what happened I was incredibly shocked.
They thought I would get a better education in the UK, and I was sent to a Catholic grammar school.
My family were fine about me marrying a Sikh — we are already a mix as my father is half-Chinese — but the Indian view remains that people should not marry outside their culture.
In the Asian community if a man marries a white girl it is just about acceptable, but a black girl? My mother couldn’t come over because of the problems in Zimbabwe, but both his parents attended.
I haven’t converted, as Jas is not particularly religious, but I think he will encourage our children to go to a Sikh school where they can learn Punjabi. Because my heritage is already mixed I don’t really have a cultural identity and I think it would be nice for our children to have a stronger sense of where they come from.
