Marrying into a Punjabi family can be quite a culture shock! We are loud, brash, unruly, mostly drunk, and perpetually happy! But then we are also extremely loving and caring, and that’s why Punjabi families are the best in the world! Here are 15 signs you are marrying a Punjabi...

1. So many relatives!


When your head starts spinning at the thought of all the Chachi-jis and Masi-jis whose names you’ll now have to remember.

2. Are they all alcoholics?


When every person in the room has a drink in his/her hand!

3. Decibel levels are off the charts!


When you literally have to scream things out because otherwise no one will hear you given how loudly everyone talks.

4. When Canada is Kanneda and America and Amreeka.


Much like saada Bhatinda, Patiala and Ambala!

5. Gluttony!


When everyone is constantly trying to feed you more ghee laden parathas and lassi!
