I am sure you must have had heard desi parents saying, "We are earning for our (kids' education) and daughters' marriages."
Isn't it sad?
Working hard for marriage? Is this that hard?
Like, yeah education is important and not free, but
getting married is supposed to be the easiest thing (after you have
found your better half). Yes, some can afford it, but not all. To many,
it is a big responsibility and burden.
Desi parents first work hard for
their kids' education, then despite being
relax and enjoying their lives, they get more worried about their
weddings rather than marriage. They save at least up to 5 laks for
even the most simplest wedding aj kay door mein. Our weddings last for at least 3 days, you can understand the expenses.
Their responsibility is not lavish weddings ta ka log kuch na
kahein. They did a lot for us. Now we should be mature enough to
understand the current economic situation, unnecessary burden on our parents
and even on us, and go for some small/intimate wedding of close
friends and family instead of organizing a country fair of 300 plus people.
