I used to date this boy, he was Indian (as in his family is from India, not Native American). After about a month, he suddenly broke up with me. When I asked him, he said that it was because of his culture and that if his family found out that they would disown him. When he explained I totally understood and we agreed to stay friends. We've been broken up a while and have both moved on, but he is dating another girl that is not Indian. I'm starting to wonder if he was lying to me when he said it was his culture, but I hardly know anything about Indian culture. Anyone know anything about this?

Well, I am part Indian and some families are very traditional and quite strict while some are a lot more open-minded. From the sound of it though, if he's currently dating someone who isn't Indian, it was most likely just an excuse to break up and get with another chick. Unless she's aware that he ultimately won't end up with her and is okay with just casual dating and hooking up. In which case it isn't common for Indian guys to do this until they settle down with an Indian girl whether by their own choice or by their parents. Hope that made sense0
