When your parents roll up their sleeves and get down to finding the perfect guy for you, be assured you’re gonna get married soon. Here are 11 things you’ll only get if your marriage was arranged by parents:
And now that you agreed to let him find you one, your far-in-future marriage and groom-hunting were the only topics of discussion, at all times, at all places.
He actually convinced you into getting a professional photoshoot done for the same. It was the most annoying thing you did – posing in that saree for that photographer. Uff!
And some of them even asked you to talk to a few of these ‘prospects’ on phone! Those conversations were just awkward.
…Especially if you felt your parents were particularly interested in them. You had to do your ground research, right?
…Where you weren’t even sure how the guy might turn out to be, let alone his family. You almost felt like you were risking everything.
But when you actually met him, you found yourself surprisingly tongue-tied and the two of you just ended up chatting about random stuff.
And all the way back home, you only kept repeating to yourself, “Wow! Did I just get engaged?”
The stranger you met that first day you couldn’t really talk to? Yeah, you couldn’t talk enough to him later. And his parents and family? They didn’t seem much different from your family either.
And you started to look forward to it, even if it was only because you’d get to wear all those gorgeous clothes you bought!
It was like your family was spoiling you crazy ’coz you were gonna leave them soon, and his parents were giving in to all your demands, ’coz you were gonna be a part of their family just as soon. Win, win!
’Coz he turned out to be everything you wished for. You felt like you were falling in love and your arranged marriage was turning into a love story.
