Is there any way to make a relationship halal without involving family

Q:

Assalamualaikum. I had a friend who was so close to me. She asked me some questions which I couldn’t answer. I would like to ask those here. She was in love with a guy. Though their status were not same. His family wouldn’t accept her she knew it. So she stayed away from the guy to secure her religious life and love for him also. But after a year they met somehow. They started talking and they created a friendship bonding. My friend was getting weak again and fell for him again. As a result she told him that she loved him and wanted him to marry. The guy was shocked and he didn’t accept her. They just kept their friendship But after 6/7 months that guy started loving my frnd and they fell in love together which lead them to commit zina slowly. They made this sin in 2017. But still they are together. The guy is being honest with my friend and waiting to marry cause he is still a student. Though both of them afraid that their family won’t let them marry. Both of them are also in mental pressure bacause of the sins they committed. My friend asked me that is there any way to make their relationship halal without involving their family so that they can at least stay a bit in peace that they are not in a haram relationship. I couldn’t express their words though but hope you will understand and give a proper answer.

Thank you for your question. 
 
For a virgin girl to be involved in any halal marital relationship needs the consent of her father or grandfather.
This is mandatory according to Shariah
