What did I marry into?

Team WOWRAL Apr 23, 2016

Your life has been a perfect fairy tale. And then you got married. And then! OMG! What just happened?

You have been a lovely and adorable daughter to your parents. Wise and witty, you made everyone glad with your grades, your career, your homely side and have always been a brilliant host and planner of little events to the 'T' which everyone is a fan of. On your office desk you have everything labelled, you have all colors of inks in pens, you keep your pencil sharpened all the time, you stick notes to never forget anything, you drawer is never cluttered, you files neatly stacked. All in all, simply organized.

And then you fall in love. He is smart, witty, has great sense of humor, tall, handsome, highly compatible and makes you feel comfortable. You both decide to have a wedding and everything is so dreamy!

Boom! This is when the bomb explodes! Welcome to the mess darling!

1. Never on time!

1. Never on time!

He may have waited for you for hours together but now that you are with him, he will take his own time for EVERY DAMN THING.

Getting up: Late

Shower: Late

Breakfast: Almost time to gobble up and leave for office. Hence, late Again.

Now you know there is a reason people gift couple watches on your wedding.

2. Where are my clothes honey?

2. Where are my clothes honey?

And when this is asked perhaps JLo will shout aloud too- On the floor!

On the bed.

On the dining chair.

On the sofa.

On the ironing table.

But never on the hook or the cupboard or the laundry bag Specially the socks.

Need perfect training for rag picker? Get married!

Needless to mention, the same goes for shoes!

3. Towel pleeeeaseeee!

3. Towel pleeeeaseeee!

Trust us, it does not sound and feel romantic if you have to leave your routine of getting things done on time and grab a moist towel (obviously was not dried last day!) and hand it to someone who is dripping wet while you are super clean and ready to win the day with perfect ironed clothes. Arrrrgh!

4. Why don't you make something easy today? Like Dum Biryani?

You are telling your husband about how super busy you were in the day and how tired you are. He turns so sweet as he says cook something easy. You ask what? And that's it. There will come a huge order of making this and that. And even the sandwiches will not be simple ones. Yeah, we all have experienced that!

Need a better option? Do not ask him at all or ORDER food. After all those apps should be useful someday. And those discount pamphlets? Grab them now!

5. You are so excited about the weekend and right then...

5. You are so excited about the weekend and right then...

Honey, my friends are coming over. We have a final match! BlahBlah vs BlahBlah and we are totally supporting BlahBlah! Will you please make some coolers, some snacks, some dessert and yeah, some popcorn before leaving for your spa? We will order the food. Do not worry.

Now to conclude,

a. You have to cook no matter what.

b. You have to leave the house.

c. Ordering food results in half spilled packets in your kitchen, half eaten food left in utensils in the sink.

d. Popcorn in every unreachable corner of the drawing room.

And last but not the least, the expensive glasses from the table will not be picked up and then broken and then OMG! Heartbreak already!

6. Sit with your dinner plate and a request pops in!

Dear, can you please find my PAN card, Aadhar Card, Cheque Book, Debit card, Employee Card, Membership card, Report card of IX Grade, Passport, Electricity bill and etc etc?

If you even have a slight thought that he will keep these documents safe, just forget it. It was the work of our dads. The generations after them are absolutely zero at maintaining files.

Must have: Microwave safe plates.

7. The bathroom will always be a mess!

7. The bathroom will always be a mess!

No science about this but you will always find it in a condition mostly prevalent after a storm has left.

8. Forget sitting. Your name will be chanted day and night!

8. Forget sitting. Your name will be chanted day and night!

As Johnnie Walker once said, "Keep walking," baby!

You will need to, have to keep going towards them because the cry in the call will make you jump to your feet.

9. Your emotions? Well..

9. Your emotions? Well..

.. not that they will not be heard. But listened and attended to? Do not count on it. Yes, you will have to repeat your things. You will have to repeat your relative names. You will have to remind him of the birthdays and anniversaries of the both of your families. You will, ummm, need to shop alone or with the girl gang. You will... the list goes on.

So if they are sooooo problematic, why should we marry them?

So if they are sooooo problematic, why should we marry them?

Yes indeed the list is a long one and can be still continued. So you must be thinking hard as to why should these species be allowed to get married? Right? You must marry them for:

Never ending hugs

For the continuous laughter everyday

The stupidities done together

Their smile <3

The encouragement that stays

The food never tastes bad for them no matter how you cooked

Their selflessness when it comes to you

Their words of hope

Their lack of sleep when you fall ill.

Their ability to make us smile no matter how low life takes us

And lastly and most importantly, the love.

We all are imperfect after all and everybody needs improvement. So why nit adjust a little with the most wondrous lucky one? ;)

P. S.: To the guys who are organized:You will land up with a messy girl for sure. Because? That's the way it is!
