My Story: I Always Feared Arranged Marriage. But This Relationship Proved Me Wrong
December 2nd, 2016
“Our marriage has been arranged by our parents even though we have known each other for a very long time. I never imagined that my “sapno ka rajkumar” will be Mobin. I have many beautiful and lovely memories with him. On the day he came home with his family to see me, I was very worried. However, everything went smoothly. We then exchanged our phone numbers started talking and chatting for long hours. We were always busy with our mobile phones.
When I am with him, I need no one else to celebrate with. He is a shy person, and I am totally the opposite. Most of the time he plays the role of a listener, and I am the speaker. From the day I met him I have maintained a diary and named it MobiNeeda. I have entered all our special moments and memories in it. I always imagined a tall, handsome man with a great sense of humour to be my life partner. And he is everything I ever wanted. Some of his best qualities are his patience and ability to handle every situation calmly. Last month he celebrated my birthday in the most romantic way I could imagine: candle light dinner; a bunch of red roses, my favourite Choco truffle cake gifts and much more. He also gave me a heartfelt letter which made me cry. Some words from the letter: “Since we met each other, every moment brought us closer now that we have become one, so it’s my birthday too…Happy birthday to us!”
His existence makes me feel like all my dreams have come true. Every time we are together, we feel like time runs faster. We end our conversations with the sentence: Aur kuch to reh gaya on call I will tell you (If there’s more, I will tell you on the call).
Since my teen years, I have feared the idea of an arranged marriage. Even now I can’t believe this relationship came to be through an arranged meeting.
Lucky Me! I have got the best of all. Mobin and his family give me so much love and care. I will be the first daughter-in–law of their family. It feels good when his parents call me “Badi Bahu”, and his brother and sisters call me “Bhabhi”.
Mobin truly believes in me that I will handle my all responsibilities in a peaceful and elegant manner.
We are getting married next month. And I have my happy and sad mixed-feelings days. There are many things left to be done for the wedding. But everything we do will still make me feel incomplete till I am with him and married to him. And I wish that every day in our future life brings us new joy and happiness.”
