I am in love with a girl, she too loves me. We wanted to marry but her family members were not agree. I and my family waited for nearly two years. After that my family fixed my marriage to somewhere else. I also got engaged to this new girl one months back. engagement was a big function involving both families, video recording was also done. exchanges of gifts were also done. my father also received some money in cash from them.
Now the previous girl has convinced her family. I love the previous girl and wanted to marry her any how.
But I am engaged to this new girl, my family also wants to continue with current engagement because
1. They have taken some money during engagement and they will go to police if we breaks the current engagement. My father and I are in government service. So we fear to loose our job too as dowry charges are non-bailable.
2.And off course due to social pressure that will come to them if they breaks the current engagement.
My question is : What are the legal consequences, if we broke the current engagement?
What I think as the only solution is: Get married in court with previous girl to whom I love. With this marriage certificate as a proof, apply for anticipatory bail (for safety in case the family of other girl goes to police), then inform to my family and the family of other girl that I am married now.
I am ready to return the amount which other girl family paid to my father and their expenses that took place during engagement.
Please answer my question and give your valuable suggestions on my solution.
I am in deep trouble, wants to marry with girl to whom I love but do not want to create problem for my family too.
