“I’ve been in a relationship for 8 years. We met in a train, when I went to my aunt’s place in Rourkela. I went there and while coming back I met her in a train. That was in 2007.”
“I can’t imagine myself in an arranged marriage. I can understand the values of it and I think it’s different. I would be scared if I had to go through an arranged marriage. I saw an Indian wedding the other day, which was an arranged marriage. They were a young couple and they looked very scared. But in an English wedding it’s very different, the couple are very happy, they’ve known each other for a very long time and made commitments to each other and I wouldn’t associate feeling very scared at a wedding day. In some cases it will work and people will be really happy in an arranged marriage.”
“There was a phase in my life I was in for arranged marriages and then there was a phase in life when i was against it. Right now i don’t know where I stand. And for me love could be anything. It could be the platonic type or the non platonic type.” #DIYTales
“I have been married for 25 years and to me love is affection and to care. I have had an arranged marriage and I do feel dating is an important factor as it’s important to know what you’re getting into and who you are going with. I guess I was lucky as even my courtship period was a very short one.”
“I’m not yet married. We’ve been in a relationship, it’s been 6 years. She’s my relative and we’ve loved each other since we were kids. One day I asked her if she would like to marry me and it’s been good since.
Love it is not just at first sight, you need to get to know the person, you need to see if you are fit to be in love, you need to see if you can accommodate each other.”
“Love keeps a marriage going. The day you fall out of love in marriage everything falls out of place. Because it’s for love that you exist.
We had some financial crisis and my husband gave up all the money he had saved. He did that for my mother. I’ll always hold that in a special place in my life. I mean there could not be anything better that he could have done for me.”
“I really liked him. I met him 8 years back in office and we never spoke to each other but I liked him and he liked me. Then it just happened. He proposed to me. It was not so much of drama. I hadn’t spoken to him properly, but I still liked him. He’s the first man I’ve fallen in love with. So I said yes. He’s very honest. I like that about him.
We went to Goa on our wedding anniversary recently. It was a surprise party. We went to a resort and he surprised me with this huge party. I never thought he’d do that. He’s not that kind of person.”
