    What I find most amusing is that both the groom and bride are referred to as the ‘boy” and ‘girl’ even though they are well into adulthood!

  3. As a guy who’s not a big fan of horoscopes, I have watched my parents adamantly push for it even when no compatibility exists at all. Those stars can be a major pain in the ass if they match. Sadly, the converse holds true if they dont match for couples in love too, I guess πŸ™

    oh the match making aunties… they always have some distant relative’s cousin’s brother ready for an unmarried girl πŸ˜€ It’s like they are walking talking bharat matrimony πŸ˜€ You are going to have some fun soon πŸ˜›

  6. I feel you! Going through that phase you know! If ever visit any of relatives house, the only question they ask is “When are you getting married?” That is so annoying!
    All the best to not getting sold out until you are ready to πŸ˜›

    The whole idea of these arranged marriages is certainly foreign to me in Canada. I remember in the early 1980s I had a friend in Montreal who came from Indian to marry her Indian husband who now lived in Canada. They had never even met. I thought that was very brave of her. I take it you don’t take too kindly to the arranged marriage tradition, Swathi? I don’t think I would be either.

    Oh! Just don’t get me started on this! I am so damn frustrated with this whole wedding talk! I wonder how someone’s marriage can be someone else’s life’s mission!

    It happens all the time. And with boys, it’s more like he should have more options to choose from.. as if we’re talking about some dishes that he has to try and select the one that he likes the most!

    Anything related to marriage in our country is simply hopeless… talk about aunties and they will have all the stories to tell! There are so many notions that prevail around us that need immediate stop!

    Cheers

    Argh! Don’t get me started. That’s all I’m gonna say :@ :@
    More than the aunties, it’s parents who need to chill. Aunties too, but if parents hit the brakes, the aunties would lose interest soon.

    You really had me with the title. I thought I have landed on a wrong blog πŸ˜€ Hilarious post and totally to the point. I agree with Sreesha here, even parents need to chill a bit, there are so many other things to do in life as well.

  14. Tell me about it! We once had a prospect for my sister and the would be MIL gave us a ‘list’ of gold and silver items they wanted us to give them during the wedding. That was the last we saw of them!

    Such a sad thing and I feel so angry with how the elders are first after our lives to get married and then to have babies πŸ™ It’s like quicksand.
    Luckily for me, I had found VT or the other way round, so I wasn’t put up in the market. If I was, I would have preferred to stay single.
