Think before you act!

Sir, my boyfriend and I have been in love for the last four years. We really love each other but his parents bluntly refused to let us marry. They don’t want him to marry out of his caste. He is into family business and if he marries me, his parents will throw him out of the business and house. He says he can’t live without me but is also unable to convince his parents. Now, I am not sure what to do. I feel guilty about making him leave his family and business for me, and also find it very hard to move on. Please advise me as my parents are also looking for a suitable match for me.
