My Arranged Marriage :Part Three

The last two posts were about how we met and what happened when we met..today i thought of rounding off our story with our marriage and the tiny three month courtship we had.

When a girl knows she is all set to marry this guy,there are lot of things that happen like,

Relationship status is changed immidiately on Orkut and FB
Chat with friend on Gtalk have the link to the guy's profile
the guy's number is saved with a special name
identifying the caller,a special ringtone is set
words like "awww:)" "hehehe" and "yaaa i know" become the most important parts of Gtalk
sudden attention is paid to the caller tune she has set on her phone and it moves away from hip-hop
the girls parents no longer bother her when is found on the phone talking to him at 2 in the night
she starts smiling to herself when she hears some songs
she likes writting down her name with her new married surname :D
she smiles before dozing off

When a guy knows he is all set to marry this girl there are few changes

Friends are scrapped saying"Feb mein kya kar raha hai,i am tying the knot"(what you doing in February)
some friends are warned "sambhalke post likhna"(be carefull abt what you post on my wall dude)
he plans a quick visit on-site for a month to earn some extra cash and manage a longer leave for the wedding
he pays the building watchman extra money to come and clean up the house before he leaves for the wedding
he removes all traces of ashtrays and liqour bottles from his house,the social networking profile and conversations with buddies
he makes a mental reminder "need to call her after work"

So this and a lot more happened over the three months that intervened before the first time we met and the day we got married,an exact three months of which a month and a half was spent in Germany. Laughing at the sad office food,while chatting and telling him what is PDA(public display of affection). Somewhere in between speaking to his mother about your shoe size and ring size,while my parent worry about his suit lengths and gifts for the relatives. I found myself pointing at unknown boys in malls and telling the guy across the counter in Vna Huesen,Fossil and Jockey "us ladke k size ka " (i want something of that guy's size) yess i know how embarrassing it can all be.

And amid all this i went to work,spoke to him for 15 minutes in the middle of work,sent maisl to colleagues inviting them for the wedding,manages to maintain my calm as i got a "i love you" text from him while dinning with my aunts n uncles,i also survived 5 hours of sleep since the hours we were home were spent on the phone.

the internet becomes your lifeline,as you google everything out from"best contraceptives" to honeymoon places" to words he uses on his blog,previously unheard of..

And then finally 9 hours away from the wedding i get a message on my cell.."you are the best thing that has ever happened to me"

And everything else is put to rest..today its exactly 2 years since we first met and all the 15 minutes converstaion happened..

And if there is one name that has touched my soul,and brings a smile on my face every time,i have it inked on me :)

Happy Anniversary baby
