I have been taking digs at people, ridiculed the very thought of it, and always wondered how could people do this to themselves. But I guess, everybody goes through it, and I always believed this – eventually I would fall for it too!
This post here might take some by surprise, some by shock and most would hate me for announcing this here before telling them, but well it all happened so quick!
I’m getting married.
I have written countless number of articles about relationships, marriage and everything in between. I have written about love stories, love affairs and what not? Never ever thought the day I would be writing about my marriage, would be so soon. I always thought I still have a couple more romantic posts to go, before I actually tie the knot, but well fate seemed to have different ideas.
There are a lot of good arguments against marriage, and well who would know this better than me? I have been championing the cause for so long now! But well, as one of my friend who had recently got engaged mentioned – You just take that Gut call, and take the leap. Just, for this one time, you would have to trust yourself and just jump, and everything would be fine.
Listen to the inner heart and the small little voice from there and you would get your answer. I always laughed and rubbished the idea – now I guess I have started believing in that! Yes, Marriage still seems like this not-really-necessary incident in a perfectly going fun life of a twenty something (okay! Twenty five something) boy’s life. But well, for this one time, I would like to believe, that the grass is greener on the other side.
Change is the essence of life, and the future seems more beautiful. For once, a bird in hand is worth two in the bush, does not apply to your perceived perfect bachelorhood life!
Beyond a point, you need some meaning in your life. You want to get some routine to your random life. You feel that, when you return home in the evening after office, there should be someone whom you can look forward to. You should feel excited about getting back home in the evening. Look forward to the weekend ahead, and wait for the smallest of the holidays, to run away to a nearby weekend getaway.
And I have just jumped, that point! Am I excited? Yes! Am I nervous? A little! But the most important question – Am I happy? Have never been happier!!
Getting to who is she? How did I meet her? How did this all happen? When is THE DATE? And other details, well, all of that needs a longer post.
Come on Guys, This is a once-in-a-lifetime moment!
