I’d like to thank you all for wishing the best for me. Before I say something else, I should clarify that arrange marriages are very much in practice and it is the best way to choose your life partner in India specially when we live in a very cross-cultured nation. India is not just a secular country but the people here speak as many as 25 different languages and more than 200 dialects. All the different cultures and religious beliefs are preserved with their different roots.
An arrange marriage comes with a lot of support from families and values. They work in ways one cannot imagine. I am happy that I am getting married in an arranged way. In my country where all the people are trying to make a nation full of happiness and joy, the woman empowerment is still in development.
There is nothing wrong with arrange marriages as the boy and girl get married only by their wishes. It is just the parents who with the best for their kids and their culture.
Indian weddings are really a BIG party. It starts from the horoscope match and ends with a 3-5 days long wedding function. Yes! I am happy to be getting married to her. And as for the horoscope, it is mainly a match of basic natural properties of the people who are supposed to get married. There are 36 qualities of a person is defined in the marital horoscope of a person. If more then 17 properties match, the couple is supposed to have a happy married life. In my case, mine and Priyanka’s horoscope matched on 24 points. I am sure we both will grow the love that is required for a soul mate.
What happens now that you met each other will you both talk more to get closer to each other before the wedding takes place?
Sure! This is the way and surprises are on for both of us. We have all the stories of our lives. The journey that we were living parallel will now be crossing each other’s path. We have so much to share, so much to ask and so much to cherish about. This is a thing in arrange marriage that we need to discover each other even after the marriage. Phone calls will help break the ice. Friends will start teasing. Parents will ask funny questions and the only reply that mostly come out will be a blush.
There will be a lot to do before the actual marriage. The wedding will be on photographs and video to enjoy all our lives and share with all the friends.
For Indians, a marriage is not just a commitment for a few years. It is a commitment for more than one lifetime (Seven, to be more specific.). This is the faith that you only marry to the one who is made for you. You can never go wrong.
I believe and will love her without asking any questions and leaving behind all mine and her past.
