Small Talk and Simple Things Real life stories that will inspire you to take a chill pill towards Arranged marriage

Author Name: Meryl Elizabeth Mathew | Format: Paperback | Genre : Literature & Fiction | Other Details

When I first sat face to face with the reality of looking out for my soul mate by browsing through an App that supposedly connected families I was completely against the concept. I honestly did not even know how to go about with the awkward first conversation, let alone think about spending the rest of my life with someone I would meet only once or twice before the big day. This fear of the unknown pertained back then, because I never knew that the experience would actually allow me to grow into the better person that I have become today. Some of these tales from my own experience did make me feel blue at the time, but today it brings a smile to my face because of the valuable lesson I have learnt from it while some others still make me laugh every time it crosses my mind. This got me wondering, wouldn’t people around me, friends, friends of friends and families across cultures who have adopted the concept of arranged marriage have such interesting stories to tell from their experience? Perhaps if these stories were entailed like a wise woman’s tale it could maybe ease the pressure off arranged marriage for someone who is new to it. One thing’s for sure we all have a soul mate who we will meet at the right time but while we are in this process of swiping right and left we do bump into some interesting characters who for many reasons may or may not be the one for us but in-turn become a memorable chapter in our story. This book entails 12 such hand-picked stories that will inspire you to experience the process of arranged marriage not for anyone else but for yourself. It could perhaps even make couples who fell in love and got married wonder if they possibly missed out on something
