As soon as you complete your studies, you’d get nagged beyond tolerance about getting hitched. Every party, every get together, meetings anything that involves you going out of your house is seen by your parents as an excellent opportunity to find a suitable groom/ bride for you.
And if you spare them all this efforts by finding that special someone by yourself. You. are. Done.
“Marrying someone for love? you kidding me? marriages are done to have kids” – that’s the Indian logic. I never understood why Indian parents get so offended when their kid decides to find a partner for themselves. Nevertheless, i think it’s safe to say that the only surprise Indian parents give is a surprise marriage!
