So I won again last week. 🙂 I try to be modest but invariably cannot for some reason :p Read the story You Lose and tell me what you think. 2018 has been a year I find the voice of OpinionatedMua.com. So of course, it turned out to be opinions and about books. But this year will be me championing feminism and continue fighting against sexism.(Yes as a continuation to #IHaveAVoiceToo) Anyways lets get to the story – The Marriage
The Marriage #FridayFotoFiction
The decor was made out to be Instagram perfect. A minimalist, elegant wedding it would be.
“It’s beautiful and it fills my heart to know the groom side wanted such a simple wedding” said the bride’s aunt to her friends who had been invited to the wedding.
“The overall wedding cost just 5 lakhs!” said the groom’s uncle amazed.
“Lucky girl! She is marrying a boy who doesn’t demand anything”, said the bride’s friend to her.
Indeed thought the bride, proud of all the arrangements they had made together. She sneaked a text to her beloved.
‘Thank you for agreeing to split the wedding costs and pushing for a simple wedding. I love you for being different.’
‘Anyways, all I ever wanted was YOU more than anything else.’ came the reply.
An Afterthought by OpinionatedMua
It’s time to look at weddings as a celebration organized by two people who are getting married. Ever so often, especially in India, marriage is a huge deal where the groom’s side demands and the bride’s side spends a lott. I strongly believe the change is in the hands of the generations now, who can convince the older generations to move away from such thoughts and practices. Men and women are equal, you don’t bribe someone to take your daughter and neither do you deserve money for marrying off your son to someone’s daughter. Marriage is not a trade but a coming together of two souls and families.
Have a marriage instead of a wedding. What say?
