I have heard a lot of ol people say that it takes a lot for a wedding to happen. It just does not happen in someway..a lot of people try to ascertain that marriages are indeed made in heaven..and heaven is not that easy to reach!
The last time I attended a wedding in my family a lot of people came and hugged me and said “next is yours”. It sounded kinda exciting then but now when things are getting a bit too fast, I am beginning to get scared. All the tension, all the apprehensions…are all mounting up. Its weird to even think of such a commitment in such a short span of time especially if it’s an arranged one!
Come on, think of getting up next to a person u hardly know! Think of how difficult its going to be to let a complete stranger be a part of your life! A guy who hardly knows my name trying to make my family and help me in making my dreams come true(O hell, he doesn’t even have a clue of what my dreams are).. I am kinda getting psyched and nobody seems to be listening..A would probably think am overreacting but as far as am concerned it’s bound to happen at some point in time!!If not now, a little later..And then…what happens next???
Guess, the way I see it, wedding is a place where you can see a myriad of expressions come alive. You can see the joy of a family getting their kid married, the pain of parents coz they are officially letting go of their kids, the happiness of kids around coz they get new clothes and great food, the contentment of grandparents coz their family is extending…And then there is the person getting married, the smile she has to put up coz she has to pretend she is all happy, the hurt she has to suppress, the joy she has to express while she is burning inside, the fear, the apprehensions..and what not..maybe that’s what makes a wedding so lively..such a mix of emotions!
