Answer:

You are allowed to marry the person you have feelings of love. However,, as you already know, it is one thing to feel love for a person, it is another to go beyond the natural instinct to be intimate with the person for that reason. As long as your feelings remain on a chaste level, and you do not break any of the rules, there is nothing wrong with it.

If you are an adult, and you want to marry someone you may marry him, in spite of your parents' objections, provided the person you have chosen is of sound faith, character and has the financial means to support you.
