I believe in sikhism and taking steps towards amrit, but being from a non sikh background my family seems to have issue with it, their argument is if I take amrit and my appearance changes I will not be accepted in their community (hindu) and creates obstacle for marriage.. So they say that you can believe but don't anything to anyone that you are a sikh and get married and live a normal life. So I am curious to know is it allowed to stay unmarried ?
I come from a hindu background but I believe in sikhi and taking steps towards amrit, but my family is against it and wants me to follow just in heart and not do anything that shows other's that I am a sikh and I should get married and live a normal life. They say conversion wouldn't be accepted in their society and people will say bad things and also marriage will be difficult. I am curious to know what does sikhi say about celibacy and how do I handle this problem?
