Hey Neha :)
I completely agree with your post. You've described the premise of the show beautifully, and if they show what you just wrote, I shall be one happy girl :D
Coming to your question, I would definitely put love above social acceptance because honestly speaking, love really doesn't account for age gaps, morality issues, etc. It's a pure, simple emotion which only the two people experiencing it are privy to. So yes, for me social acceptance is not necessary.
However, one cannot disregard the society completely. We are humans, our primary nature is to live with inter-dependence, to live among people of our own kind. And as much as the prejudices are reducing, this is still a sensitive issue. And older man and a younger girl will always be controversial. Not only in India, but there are people all over the world who find the concept abnormal. And even if the two people concerned, fall in love, there will always be people opposing them, labeling their relationship. And that is bound to trouble you. Even if Nidhi puts love above social acceptance, the fact that people point fingers will bother the couple, until and incase they reach a point in their relationship when they understand each other and where they stand, perfectly. Till that point comes, there will always be doubts, insecurities, misunderstandings and to some extent, suppression of feelings.
Besides, the couple will have to adjust in many other ways. It's possible, their ideologies, standards, etc don't match and they will have to put their love above everything and find a middle ground and in due course, a stable relationship.
So, to answer your question, Yes love conquers all, but in my opinion you need to be at a certain point in the relationship, to completely refute the society's judgement and be comfortable in the relation you share. Until then, they can only strive to come to a middle ground :)
^ Wow. I wrote a speech. Sorry 'bout that, I got carried away
P.S - Forgot to add this: I agree with you, society accepted relationships do not guarantee happiness :)
