In India, marriage is often presented as the ultimate goal every person, especially woman, needs to achieve. Even if they don't want to go ahead with it, societal and family pressure seems to get the best of them. But some of us really don't want to get married and whenever you say these words at a family occasion or in front of your mom's kitty party friends, they have so much to say to you, none of it good, though. So here are 13 things you'll definitely hear if shaadi isn't your cup of tea.
Uhh. No, it's not just a phase, I might actually never want to get married.
Aunty, reality check, I don't need shaadi to have kids. That I'm very good at doing without marriage too.
I'm my own partner and it's a great and fulfilling relationship I have with myself. Also, my friends and dogs are there to give me company.
What time? When will the time come?
I will look after myself - I'll have my besties and my work. Don't worry about this.
Yes, one of the most important decisions of my life should be based on emotional blackmail. Aunty, you nailed it!
No, just for a party I don't want to get married. I can have parties JLT.
Uhhh, did you forget about me? I can finance my own life. Thank you very much.
Who said marriage is the next step. Who planned this route for me?
That's great but I don't want a Rahul. I'm perfectly fine being Anjali all alone.
I am a woman just as I am. Having babies, adopting kids, not having children- nothing defines that.
I graduated top of my class, I got a promotion in the first six months of working - I think those were the happiest times of my life.
No Aunty, for the hundredth time, nahi karni shaadi.
