When it comes to marriage, people fall under two categories most of the times: the cannot-wait-for-its and don’t-ever-want-to do-its. The former crowd wear their hearts on their sleeves and prepare themselves for the matrimonial life as soon as they turn sixteen. The latter, though not cynical, don’t ever want to get married. Period. While not all of them think marriage is a socially confirming institution, they all share one thing: the hesitation to commit. I understand both sides, respect them for their stances and reasons but I would have to say that I fall somewhere in the middle- neither here, nor there.
I have my own opinions about many things like gay rights, abortion and democracy but when it comes to marriage, I have always found myself right there in the stark middle, contemplating it with bubbles or popping those darned things with a sharp pin. As I grew up and [dramatically] went in search of a solid thought, I decided to stop taking sides and grab what I want.
Many a time in the past four years, I have gone from being a romantic to a cynic a million times hence, finding myself married suddenly came as a surprise to me. This meant that I have found the love of my life and decided to share my life with him. Is it working for me? Yes. So here I was, in a new life and far away from home. I spent twenty-five years in a city I loved, tucked away in a cozy nook and never gave leaving it a thought. So when I did have to stay somewhere else and eventually move across a couple of continents, I recognised the enormity of it all.
I had to keep home, clean, cook and host social events. I had to live in a whole new world. The relocation from Madras to Maryland has been taxing and exciting for me. I have made a million friends a minute, understood new routes, come to terms with living with a man and broken my head over what to buy and what to trash.
Over the past few months, I have learned a few grown up stuff, chinned-up and gotten a part of my life into perspective. Do I like it? I love it! Why else would I create a blog to talk about all that?
