Why I Don’t Do Marriage, Even As Everyone Around Ties The Knot

The wedding season is here and with this starts the endless parade of Sharmaji’s son and Agarwalji’s nephew and duur ki bua ka beta – each of who you could possibly marry and pop a few children with. Your parents wouldn’t have it any other way- because hey, your best friend got married and her friend got married too and their mutual friend even had a kid in less than a year from her wedding date… WTF…

And the only thing you want to say in the midst of this gripping ‘marriage’ fever is- seriously, who wants to do marriage? Marriage is an overrated institution in our society. Why, you ask? Because..

1. Where’s the freedom

Once you tie the knot, you tie yourself down. Gone are the days of short dresses, long parties and even longer hangovers..

2. The drama

Ever been to your sister’s sasural? I bet you know the drama I am talking of.

3. The *aadarsh* bahu epidemic

Ever since Ekta Kapoor eternalized the aadarsh bahu, these mountain sized expectations have been striking down far too many of us.

4. The (un)relatives

Oh, no point trying to count how many extended relatives you will have. Also, you need to send them gifts on their birthdays, anniversaries and it’s-just-another-Monday-thinking-of-you!

5. The mother-in-law

Now, c’mon people- this species is the b*tt of all jokes for a reason!

6. That sister-in-law

Oh! God bless you if you are married in the typical Rajshri-type family with the all knowing sister in law. She is going to instruct you about everything from the color of your bed sheet and the length of your hair. Muft..muft..muft..

7. Tears and traps

With Ekta Kapoor letting the women of the household in on lethal saazish secrets, you can expect to be morphed into a tear-producing machine.

8. Toilet seats are never the same


9. Deadly dishes

This one never ends really. Keep washing the dishes. What did I grow up for? To get diploma in being a maid. Clean sink… turn around… another pile- seriously, it’s magic!

10. Stop the stalking

No one lets a married girl stalk her crazy crushes! FML…

11. Changes, changes, and some more changes

Ever heard ‘thoda aur…’ Well guess what- this ‘thoda aur’ will continue until there isn’t ‘aur’ life left in you..

12. Killer kitchen

Every day, you will wish to burn your kitchen up in flames. Every single fu*king day!

13. The wrong guy

This may happen. *chills*

14. Chaar log

They’re gonna pop every two seconds once you’re (un)happily married.

15. The *aspirin* ceremony

When your hard-earned money goes down the drain in feeding 500 guests who care little about your marriage and more about what you have NOT put on your wedding menu, you will know what I’m talkin’of…aspirin?

16. Two to three

You’re barely going to be in your first year of marriage and dearest daadi will like you to pop some great grandchildren. A teeny tiny tot popping from your vajajaa… sounds fun, isn’t it?

17. Can’t check out other guys

Imagine giving up on all those smoking hot guys that put your heart in your eyes..Damn..

18. Because the society really sucks

One reason why marriage isn’t as sweet is because of the society we live in. Terrible people and terrible traditions. F**k the s**t.

19. Marriage isn’t necessarily love

With so many couples married but not in love, there’s no hurry to get hitched because a lifetime is a long time to spend with someone we barely know!

20. Where’s the fun

In all these reasons, one thing that stands out unanswered is- where is the fun…

So, why tie life when you could fly through life? 😉

I am a misfit software engineer who left her work in the corporate world to pursue the insatiable quest to write. A freelance worker by the day, I choose to dream with eyes open wide. I have conversations with myself where I talk of the possibilities that life can hold. Too many wishes made on empty starless nights ensure that there are various dreams yet to be lived. I am working my way as I am on a quest to find myself. The greatest journeys are indeed the ones that lie within. I am yet to live my story because right now, the book is full of too many apostrophes and too many commas. The words are jumbled until the right one fits the puzzle. I don't believe in perfection because too many times, it is imperfection which paints the perfect story. I am verbose and I aim at living life in full swing until a speed breaker curbs the tantalizing pace with which I wish to conquer the dreams that would otherwise be too big for the not-so-tiny shoes I wear. Blessed with a lot of chubby fat, I love going the extra mile to conquer my extra dreams with an extra advice after all, we all love a little extra. A die-hard shopaholic, you can often find me laughing on serious stuff inappropriately at wrong times (unintentionally).
