I chose the unknown devil to an known devil.At the age of 16 when I just entered college I first met him through a common friend,and it was love at first site for me and I knew then I wanted him to be the father of my children.Need not mention his thoughts of our first meeting as he’s a man who doesn’t listen to his heart,but opposites attract you see.For more than six months we carried on,me being on the impatient side and trusting my instincts proposed to him by saying “I love you,will u marry me?” Yes it was a shock to him just like u felt one while reading the above!! A girl proposing and that too in 1993,he had to weigh all the pros and cons.I hadn’t left him with much options of refusing me as by then I had managed to make my place in his heart.
With our age difference of he being six years elder to me came our inter-cast marriage issues,he being a mahar ashtrian and me a Sindhi.It is believed whats a love story without a few twists and turns!! Ours was like a roller coaster ride,but with intervals.V eloped and had a court marriage and then after seven months a traditional one.( today I tell people I got married twice but with the same man!!)
Rest is history,just like all other couples we have our ups and downs.We had our share of problems with my bipolar always ranking as the prime criminal.His strong bondage,deep love,and commitment of a real man towards me is what has and will always sustain our marriage.Only “Death will do us apart”.
