In brief: Depends

Cultural ties and taboos vary in their intensity and effect on individuals,Indian culture values family ties and ethnic purity as much as any in the world, and families have variable influence on those who want to deviate from their system.Males from this culture risk being shunned/disowned by their family if they do.
Nevertheless, many do break free and start a new life.
