I feel damn lucky to have so00 many ppl in my life who are actually bothered about my married life n all that. All of a sudden I have a number of people (who were never there while i grew up) advising me about one important event that would take place sooner or later – marriage. Blush..blush.hihhi
Person 1: ‘Don’t marry anyone born and brought up in Gulf. They are two-timing bastards.’
Me : ‘Err…’
Person 2: ‘Don’t think that you wont get anyone. You will. Don’t feel bad and frustrated.”‘
Me: ‘ Eh, I think I am a very marriageable person. I look decent and have good qualifications and have a gem of a character. So buzz of. Frustrated, my ass!’
Person 3: ‘Take your time in knowing the person. There’s no rush.’
Me : ‘Umm…’
Person 4 (from Chennai): ‘In fact, people from chennai are nice people.. you should get married to a mallu born and raised in chennai. It would be a pleasure to have u here!’
Me : ‘Uh uh…’
Person 5 (a lady): ‘You should get married only to a person who will stay away from his parents. They will interfere in everything’
Person 6: ‘You should get married to a person who would want you to stay with his parents. You will have more people to advise and take care of you.’
Person 7: ‘Look out for elder sister. They will make your life miserable.
Me: I have an elder brother and my SIL and I get along really well. How can it be different with Elder sister?!
Person 8: ‘ Marry a man who drinks but doesnt smoke.”
Me: Now thats a sensible suggestion. I wouldnt like it if he were to just watch me drink!!
Person 9: ‘ Marry a
healthy well built ( Read: Fat) man’
Me: WTF lady!!! You mean to say I am fat!
Person 10: ‘ Best is dont have any expectation of the guy. You will be happy with what you get. There are men in multitudes but they are all the same when it comes down to character!’
I feel cared for! *sniff*
But they ended up talking about adulteration, weirdos, loveless marriages, boredom et all so common in marriages nowadays…
Shit! Now thats intimidating! And I am begining to think of making a list of what I want and what is right and then putting it up and doing a swayamvar of sorts! I am royal blood you see!!!
Soooo all of you bachelorettes out there, join me and let us pray for a bright and rich future!!!
