Marriage is a big step in our lives. Our lives take a different turn altogether. Now, you become responsible for another person’s life. In fact, your life is now intertwined with your partner’s, and the word “us” takes over “me.” (You are not your own boss anymore!) Some of us think of weddings as a time when everyone’s eyes are on us. The designer clothes, the matching dupattas, and the sparkling chudis are the talk of the town. Many girls out there have already shortlisted their wedding day look. We bet you have, too.
Having said this, you will also come across a number of girls who don’t really look forward to their shaadi. They are okay with handling life on their own terms. And, no, they don’t really need a man to put a ring on their finger and say, “I’m there for you. Don’t worry.” The only time when such women feel out of place is when the wedding season has kicked in, you know, the wedding of chacha ki beti or mami ka beta. With all the wedding preparations in full swing at home and all the relatives and not-so-good (but apparently close) friends filling every space in the house, you tend to feel nervous. Well, that’s what happens to you when you have strongly opinionated elders around you. So, this one is dedicated to all those single ladies and single men who go through the real struggle during others’ wedding. We feel you!
