My Story: I Am So Glad That I Didn’t Rush Into Marriage At An Early Age

“I come from a typical Marwari family from Bikaner, where everything was given to me on a platter and my life was headed towards an arranged marriage.

All my life I had been over pampered, and I saw the other girls around me getting married into a typical business class family and becoming house wives at such a young age, when I realised that I wanted more.

I wanted to be independent, to be open minded. I decided to leave home and pursue my MBA, after which I moved to Bombay. It’s been 7 years since I’ve lived here, completely financially independent – I pay my own rent, I’ve bought my own car and everything else that I use on a day to day basis.

Today I’m 31, working and still unmarried — which for a Marwari girl is atrociously late, but I have full faith in love and finding it. I’m so glad that I didn’t rush into marriage at an early age, when I wasn’t independent and hadn’t even discovered things about myself.”

“When were you the happiest through this journey?”

“It was after I got my own place here that my dad said, ‘You’re more like a son than a daughter’ and we couldn’t have been prouder of you.”
