We probably haven’t met but till now but before we do, I want to say a few things to you. You could find some of them cheezy, some too practical but before I start, I just want you to stop believing in those clichéd ‘this happens after marriage notions.’ No, I not going to become the wife who keeps nagging and our life wouldn’t be monotonous. Happy ever after does exist and I’ll de-code my plan of making that happen.
I want to wake up to your smile every morning and a cup of tea won’t be a bad idea to tag along. Here, I’m not being demanding but I just want to get use to that morning tea tasting of you and have that taste irreplaceable in my heart. If it’s a special occasion or sometimes even a regular day, a rose by my bed side will make me jump with joy!
Even though I’m not a great cook and we can manage having lunch at our workplace, I would love to cook you breakfast. Unlike movies, I don’t expect you to send me a message every hour as office can be engaging and hello, I’m working too! Just, if you are going out with your friends after work, a message would be great so that I can make my own plans. Just FYI, I prefer a dinner date with you over anything! We can obviously replace the dinner with a couple of drinks on Saturday. Sunday I would ideally want to keep it the ‘us’ day. Shopping (also for the house since we are married), cooking, sometimes cleaning, let’s keep it all for Sunday.
Now, about the other serious issues! We are going to fight and that’s okay but only because I’m the wife, I would want you to understand that it’s not necessary that I will try and resolve it. Don’t refer to me as a feminist if I ask for loyalty and equality from your or your friends and family because that’s how the system is. So, if we work together, decide our chores not on the basis of our gender, things will be much easier.
We are in India and as they say, ‘in India a woman doesn’t marry a man but his entire family,’ they say it right. I have undertaken the responsibility to keep you and your family happy but at the same time I want you to do the same. My parents have given your family a daughter and in return you should become their son. And if we respect each other’s families and treat them as our own, the strength of our love would know no bounds.
Just a disclaimer, I can act a little crazy at times. It may be shopping, it may be food, it may be your friends or something that doesn’t even matter but all I need from you is to stay calm and stay in love with me. I will realize that I over-reacted but don’t EVER sleep angry with me!
I like certain things and dislike certain others, I love to sometimes stay on my own and read a book and I’m willing to give you your space too! I believe that we are meant to be together and we can pull this off amazingly!
Just meet me soon and one last demand; I want a romantic, memorable proposal.
