Marriages are supposedly made in heaven. But for some people who are yet to tie the knot, there are plenty of well-wishing married relatives and friends ready with advice on hand. Sometimes, the reasons can be emotional, sometimes funny, and sometimes quite serious. The only common thing in all these advices that you should be getting married soon.
Here are some of the funniest reasons that real life couples used to motivate their unmarried loved ones to change their "single" status.
Every person secretly hopes that his legacy is carried forward even after his or her death. What a better way to do that than to have children! There is nothing like having children to complete the circle of love. It is all about vansh ko aage baadana. So, get married to preserve and pass on your amazing genes.
Marriage is your foolproof, get-out-of-jail free card, (if you know how to use it well enough!). If there is something that you really do not want to do, you can always blame it on your spouse. Don’t want to go to that boring ceremony? No worries. Blame it on your partner’s ‘important’ conference!
There is one thing certain about getting married in India- you get a lot of maal aka money. In the form of customary gifts, the parents give whatever they want to the couple. Also, the cash and gifts given by friends and relatives are more than enough to help the young couple set up their new home. Well, furnishing a new house was never easier! You can even open a new savings account with all the cash you get.
When you are dating someone, there is always something or the other on your expense list. You are either dining out frequently, wooing each other with gifts, and what not? When you are married, you no longer have to go out to eat, or catch a movie so frequently just to steal away some private moments. Now, you can spend hours talking over coffee in your own living room or bedroom.
One expense that almost all unmarried couples come across is that of the long phone bills, mentioning the late night call sessions. Well, once you are married, you will be with that person day in and day out. So, you will save yourself the unending phone bills after marriage!
Somehow, marriage gives you full-fledged rights to let go of yourself. And yes, this includes farting and burping with complete freedom! You can let it rip, without feeling the need to suppress it and run for an exit! Your spouse may not appreciate this freedom of expression, but over time, they will get used to it. Well, this is something you cannot be sure about while in the dating phase, right?
Every man wants to feel like a hero. And guys, getting married can turn you into one for your wife. She will look at you whenever she is in a fix and needs help. You will be the one she can trust to protect her and her family.
You might have heard that girls often shy away from ordering things like pizzas and burgers while out on a date. Well, apart from the weight issues, it is more about the mess that you can create as you relish these treats. And, being a slob is not an image that you want to leave on someone with whom you wish to spend years to come. But ladies, after marriage, you can let go of all your inhibitions, and order whatever you want, and relish it the way you want. Well, your spouse can react, but cannot run! Not even if you feel like licking your fingers off!
Who cares if there is a cheese stain on your night suit or if you are roaming around the house in the shabbiest tees once you are married? You do not worry about your spouse seeing you at your worse, and judging you anymore after marriage. Enjoy sitting together in those sweatpants, slurping on your drink, and enjoying a movie!
No matter how many tantrums you throw, no matter how silly you get, or no matter how sick or healthy you feel, you have someone by your side all the time. Being married means there will be someone to give you undivided attention and loads of pampering, and there is definitely no running away!
So, these fantastic, albeit funny reasons, are enough to convince anyone to get hitched. Well, tie the knot provided that you have met the "Right One".
