Married and…

Leave a comment

Nearly six months back, this girl got hitched to this dude who was happily settled in a land far far away. It was a huge glitzy ball of a wedding as all Indian wedding are. Her family, aided by the long list of gal-pals, made it a memorable couple of days and sent her off with a wave to her husband dearest’s place. She, well, she had no clue what she had signed up for. The two weeks that followed were filled with a lot of socializing, food that was going to reflect on her waistline soon and butterfly-in-the-stomach romance. And then, it was time to pack bags, weigh them a multiple times, bid bye-bye to Amma and everything familiar and board that (lush business class) plane and fly past a couple of continents. Off she landed in “the land of a million opportunities” still oblivious to what lies ahead but very much in love.
Sometimes, I can’t believe that girl was me (didn’t you already guess?) but here I am, claiming exactly that. Marriage has done a lot of things to me, as it has to my better-half, I am sure. It has changed me as a person and put that responsibility on my shoulders. Sometimes, I am so glad it happened to me but there are a few times when I feel like I have woken up on the wrong side of the matrimony bed.
The whole cultural transition has worked its charm too. I used to be this awe-struck innocent self who would gape out of the car’s window just to make sure this is reality. I have accepted it all sometimes with grace. My husband has to take most of the credit, of course. He has been that very considerate soul who has taken abuses on the lines of “It is only because of you that I am stuck at home”.
I have had gleeful times decorating the brand new love-pad we are renting. The hubby, who also shares my love for good living, had a party taking me to a zillion store in search for that dream couch and this awesome coffee table. Oh, we have had fun and we have bonded better over these expeditions. Sometime over the months, we have learned each other like a couple should. And while I have settled and gotten into the habit of calling this place home, I feel that awe-struck little girl rearing her head sometimes.
So stay with me, this ride is about to get good!
