The views on Marriage from a 23-year old Girl

Picture this. You are living in your dream-city. Making a good start of your career or at least are on the path of making one. And one day you get a call from your parents (from your home) asking you to pack-up and come home for a day or two because you have to “settle down” NOW. It is a common phrasing used in families: “padh likh li ab shaddi kar lo” for girls, and for boys “achi job lag gai, bhagwan ki krupa se, ab achi bahu mil jaaye”. This situation is not just seen in movies or soaps, but they happen for real. It has happened with me. And am pretty sure with many of us reading this.
