“A great marriage is not when the ‘perfect couple’ comes together. It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.” ~Dave Meurer

Whenever I reflect on our marriage, it brings a smile on my face. I never thought I would have a love marriage, but that was what was in store for me. Yes, ours was a love marriage against all odds and distances.

22nd January 1996, it’s been 21 years of togetherness. Well, Marriage is just a reason, lifelong friendship is the most precious gift that we received on this day.

We are two different personalities trying to adjust to each other’s idiosyncrasies, constantly working through the misunderstandings and still holding hands together, no matter what lies before us.

And life after marriage is great.

Thanks again dear husband for being there through thick & thin, for making me smile and pushing me but not letting me fall…because now I stand tall.

We are having a good time…growing old together, rediscovering ourselves, and finding ways to spice up our lives at every moment!

But as time goes on and life gains more speed with work, home and growing children, the one thing we need to figure out is to find ways to spend more time together in coming years..

1. Mixed Lentil curry

He is an early riser and morning sleep is dear to me, he plans future and I live in present, art is black and white for him and I love my colours, he is non-expressive about his feelings and I love to exhibit mine…

Whatever differences there may be between both of us, the one thing that keeps us bound is the love for ‘simple Indian food’. A simple meal of dal-roti, rasam-rice or khichdi-papad is what we crave on every single day.
