Sister, there is no such strange thing in it. Its a matter of personal choice. 

There were many Syeds Shia who remained in the taqqaya and their succeeding generations converted from their shia belief. to others. 

We have seen many families in which the spouse is of opposite sect. 

Wasalam

Why not? I am sure there are descendants of Imam Hussain (as) who are not even Muslims and don't know about it.

Allah knows best, but most of the time such claims are pure speculations. And one can see Imam Ali (as) in their dream because they just thought about him so it is not necessary caused by a divine Intervention

Just for the same reasons anyone else is not Shia.

Over the course of time many Shia through Taqiya due to oppression slowly migrated over to Sunni. Her family is probably in that situation.

There are a fair amount of Syeds that are in that category. 

Sunni might attend Majlis but they'll never do Matam. I've seen Sunni at Majalis but they will always just stand there with their hand on their chest only.

And is it ok if your parents are not shia you can be a shia??

There is no strange thing again, It is matter of level of guidance permitted by Allah swt to one person.

If the parents are not open minded or fair in dealing then this Shia son or daughter may face social problems.

Ofcourse! It depends upon ones beliefs. One should read all school of thoughts to see which is Perfect and on Right Path.. Imam Ali (a.s) said - Learn your Religion and don't inherit it. It applies on everyone whether born Shia or any Religion. Because once you learn your Religion your Imaan is strengthened and you can guide others too on the same path.
