    Divya,
    So, you got your Mr. Right in that way!!! Afterall an arranged marriage needs an YES from bride for the physical looks, because rest of the things will be taken care by elders right!
    Good to read about your life.

    DDC,
    Its definitely not stupidity, but just destiny and you well said a quote about an arranged marriage.
    Nice to read about you.
    I know most of the arranged marriages, we trust parents and they dont take any chance in choosing a Mr. Right and defnitely their selection would be atmost safe and happy selection for the life.

    Nice Thread Priya_Mommy!! Thoughts of those spl moments brought a smile on my face :)

    It was 5 yrs back. I had no interest in getting married at that point of time. I kept on rejecting the proposals for no reason. I even saw few guys in person but had no idea to get married. Finally my dad chose 3 guys and I had to decide between them. First was my DH. I was not very impressed seeing his Pic (eventhough he is very handsome :biglaugh) but my dad wanted me to meet him. I decided to meet him and tell him that I was not interested in getting married.

    We planned to meet in a temple and we were waiting for them. I dint show any interest to dress up properly :bonk. My DH came with his parents.They were walking towards us,I saw him and immediately something sparked in my heart............ Oh he s Mine!! I went speechless for a while. Then we spoke, had dinner and while returning home to my Dad's surprise I said :yes: and then we got engaged within a week's time and got married in 4 months.


    When I asked my DH the reason for choosing me he said he got a spark when he saw my Picture for the 1st time..:rotfl

    We had our engagement one month before of our marriage. We just seen each other from a distance.All of a sudden, He asked permission from my father to speak with me for 2 minutes. I got shivering inside...'Oh..he is going to say NO for this marriage.. he might have already fallen in love.. etc..etc...'

    He came nearer and told.. " For the first time, I am speechless in front of a woman.You are making me mad " :hide:
    Only those words made me to say confirm YES for my marriage and now also i feel happy for chosen a good person.

    Mine was an arranged marriage, going to 5yrs soon

    Well I said Yes coz he fit the bill on Ideal husband I always had in mind (thinking practically)

    I wanted some one who had a steady job ,Who love to travel plcs,freedom and gives me my space......

    When DH n family came to see me....... I was adamant that i will not wear a sari or shalwar , but will wear Jeans, (mom freaked out thinking i wanted to ruin the proposal) DH came we spoke briefly, he sd i'm disappointed to see you in jeans n tee, as i expected to see you in a sari all decked up with flowers, with a coffee tray, oh no what i'm going to say my frnds ..... and we just cracked up :) next day we met for coffee , surprising i found out we share lot of things in common... travel, movies , out door sports .... partying ..

    Oh ya this would be the strangest thing ever happened.......
    After our wedding on my orkut a/c he saw my pics with Sachin tendulkar and Rahul , and asked when did you meet them , I sd me n frnds went to watch cricket match at Edgbaston stadium (Ind-pak) ,he sd weird that he was also in UK at that time and he was also there to see the match, he was with his frnds...... so we both started to look up pics of that all our frnds clicked that day ........ Bingo in all the stadium photos DH was there , he was just few seats before me, I just could not believe my eyes.

    DH still jokes abt that , he says he felts the breeze and the leaves flying, and music in his ears(very filmy)

    Small world and two yrs later we were married.


    and got more than I bargained in my marriage.......... I always thank god for a wonderful spouse and if he gives me one wish I always will wish for his long life. (touchwood)

    It the best decision I have made in life.
