My Story: I Am Feeling Proud Of Marrying A Russian Girl, Breaking All The Stereotypes

The Logical Indian

August 1st, 2016 / 9:37 PM

Just a quick brief, I was born in a Rajput family which never saw a love marriage till now. We met through a common friend in Chandigarh when she came to India for the first time with her friends. On the first day, we went to chill out in a party and enjoyed there for few hours. The next day we went to the mountains for some adventure sports, that’s where I lost my heart and fell in love with ‘ Kristina ‘.

Then came the tricky part, she had a flight to Goa the next day. While dropping her back to the bus station, we decided to join her and her friends in Goa, as it was an extended weekend (2nd October to be precise). I went to Goa to meet her and that was the moment I will never forget in my life. We spent three days together before she cut short her trip and came back to Chandigarh to meet me. While dropping her back to the bus station for Delhi airport, we both were literally crying. I thought that was the end and we bid Goodbye to each other.

She was back to Petrozavodsk (Russia) and we were talking over whatsApp. We decided to move to a common place together like India or Russia.

Unfortunately, my family was discussing my arranged marriage and was about to publish my matrimonial ad. That was when I decided to break the stereotypical thinking of my Family. I finally managed to talk to my parents about our plans. Trust me on this guys — it was one hell of a ride! “How can a foreign girl adjust in our culture?? Foreign girls leave after marriage just like that…” etc.

Finally, I told my parents that she was coming and I was going  to stay with her. Then the next round of trouble began and it was getting a good accommodation. It was a nightmare as no one was willing to rent out a house to a foreign girl. Somehow, with the help of my contacts, I managed to book a good room.

I proposed her for marriage on the scenic mountains of Dharamkot (McLeodganj) singing a song and strumming the guitar. But trouble continued to mount because of the expert comments made by my relatives and friends. The common reaction — Foreign girl?? OMG, NO way!!

However, I am proud of marrying a Russian girl breaking all the stereotypes whatsoever. Our marriage took place following Hindu and Christian customs on 25th and 14th Feb respectively. Now we are living a happy and prosperous married life and we’ll continue to love each other till death do us apart.

CHEERS TO LIFE !
