    Desis and marriages

    Why do most desis consider marriage to be a magical thing? I am sure it has its perks but it should not be one's ultimate goal in life.

    How does that song go - Jamse dekha hai tujhe sanam, dil hota hai something something sanam. *PCG dances in field of sunflowers with shah rukh khan look alike in leather jacket following*

              I think its one of the few colorful social functions in our society, so its a focus of attention. Otherwise, I'm sure people have goals in their lives. Its just that no one really cares.

              But give 'em a colorful wedding to go to, and then people do care. The girls get to dress up. The guys get to eat free and watch the girls dressed up. Everyone goes home happy after the show.

              Personally, I go to check out the groom's friends.

                ^ hehe... the last bit cracked me up

                weddings are special though.

                but hmm marriages in bollywood movies are never shown to be magical or dreamy neways.. not that i recall. They all have their jhagre (i can recommend a few good ones even PCG may approve of)
                happy happy happy... happy happy happy

                  It is true that alot, infact most girls consider marriage to be their goal in life, and if possible... the earlier the luckier!! I think that it's due to their upbringing also... the moment she sees daylight she's told that she's only a guest at her parents home... hearing that all her life she starts wondering what her "apna ghar" will be like.... the home that she'll be able to call her "own" and where she wont be considered 2 be a guest anymore!
                  I'm sweet like honey, but sting like a bee!

                  It is better to be hated for what you are, then to be loved for what you are not...

                          Furqan bhai, there are many reasons for that.. when *most* desi parents look for a bahu for their son.. they are actually looking for someone who can take care of them.. ie.. MIL looks for bahu that can takecare of her and then (if possible) her beta..

                          this is a screwed concept.. nothing wrong with marrying within family.. if one wishes to do this its great but if one wishes to get married outside the family then, parents should accept that...

                          also, i think parents should also talk to their children when they see/know that he/she might be interested in someone rather than leaving the topic and hoping that its just a phase and they will get over it and marry the one THEY choose.. sigh.. i wish i could say this isn't true for my parents.. but yeah that's their strategy.. leave and ignore until either i brust up or i give up..

                          any solutions to this problem?
