  • Marriage is not a punishment!

    (Image by Alexas_Fotos from Pixabay) I have always seen some people argue that marriage is the end of life for almost everyone.

  • Love marriage

    Love marriage?? No, no… it’s arranged ?

    Did you find adjusting to married life difficult? Did it have to do with the fact that you were expected to be well-trained in household chores from Day 1, but not your husband? My husband and I found it so freaking hard to adjust with each other. We were dating for almost two years before […]
