Although married life proves to be a different, personal journey for each couple, couples who’ve had an arranged marriage kinda live through some common moments. If you too had an arranged marriage, here are 10 things you’ll totally get.
Sure you’ve talked to him a bit, but deciding on spending your entire life with him? Now, that’s a huge leap of faith and you can’t help but wonder if you took the right decision.
For they just can’t stop talking about your husband-to-be and how nice he was to ask after grandma and how sweet of him to keep loading your plate with food. *Rolls eye*
I mean, what are you supposed to say to people you’re going to live with all your life, but know nothing about? Especially when they refer to you as bhabhi, chachi, mami!
Your legs feel like they’ll collapse with the nervousness of being alone with him and your heart pounds like it’ll actually jump out in excitement. You’re a funny bag of mixed emotions.
In fact, you’ve got your mum on your side. Even though she gives you the stern look at times, you know how she actually loves that you are getting close to him.
While your family is busy celebrating last birthdays and little rituals with you, your in-laws too are pretty excited about making you a part of their clan. Both sides then often spoil you with random gifts and plans.
You never thought you’d be SO excited. Guess everyone’s happiness has rubbed off on you. Truth be told, though, you know it’s more than that. Somewhere, while getting to know him, you suspect yourself of having fallen in love with him. Can you imagine?
Especially when aunties accompany their advice with anecdotes. Eww!
After all, it was the first time when you were alone with your hubby for days on end – and we all know how firsts are always special.
You fall in love, a little more, with every passing day. You accept each other, just the way you are and grow to care and respect one another. And girl, just how amazing is that?
