“A girl has two lives: one before marriage, and the other after marriage.” If you have been told this cliché at least once in your life, then congratulations! For you have witnessed the scenario of a typical Indian household! (Pure sarcasm intended.)
Indian women are often laden with a burden of stereotypical mindsets and certain baseless customs which force them to alter their lives in multiple dimensions, after marriage. As if changing our surname and leaving behind our family wasn’t enough! *Sighs!*
Here’s presenting a pictorial presentation of the before and after scenes of a typical Indian married woman. Read on, for this may also tickle your funny bone!
1. Shackles on freedom.
2. Mornings change.
3. Bargain at Chandni Chowk v/s bargain with thesubzi wala.
4. From hotel dinners to the family cook.
6. From babe to bai.
7. Comfort over style.
8. Because you don’t marry the boy, you marry his family.
9. Family comes first.
10. Because, just no time!
Here’s a shout out to all you lovely married women out there! We think you’re absolutely delectable for dealing with the nitty-gritty of societal stereotypes on a daily basis. But hey! Don’t you forget to love yourself, in the process of loving everyone around you.
And as I am writing this, I’m reminded of the famous tagline, “You’re worth it!” *Winks*
