I always thought weddings made for exhausting evenings of fake-smiling in uncomfortable clothes. Or at least that's what I learned from well...every romantic comedy EVER. But then the internet proved me wrong. Of course, I haven't gotten married yet, but I'm guessing that it's not all fake smiles. That the hopeless, romantic part of romantic-comedies...well that's true. Of course, I also learned that almost everything's better in black and white. Even true love.

Modern romances are defined by a lot of things - cute emojis, 'Netlfix and chill', stolen moments of affection, and of course...the lack of time to actually enjoy that romance.

The world is run by men. Always was, perhaps will be for a long time to come. That's how strong the grip of patriarchy is. The ever present examples of the dirt that it is keep sprouting up, but perhaps the most obvious one still remains is the holy institution of marriage.

As I entered my 20s, I was informed by not-so-concerned auntyjis that I needed to get married ASAP. As if my college degree, the job I was proud of, the marks I shamelessly show off suddenly didn't matter anymore. So being the obedient, respectful child that I am, I decided to find people who proved their point. :)))))))

"To love is nothing. To be loved is something. But to love and be loved, that's everything."
- T. Tolis

I'm not the most romantic person. In fact, I enjoy being a complete cynic. But then, once in a while people you've never met (mostly because you aren't a stalker) make you believe in love all over again. And when news of the Anushka Sharma-Virat Kohli wedding broke yesterday, my heart did a little dance. Here are two people who tackled the perils of fame together, who didn't let rumours or the media tear them apart, who supported and loved each other wholly. And while their shaadi was nothing less than a BEYOND grand affair (it took place in ITALY!!!) did not overshadow their extremely mushy love for each other. And today this cynic is going to celebrate that, because it's impossible NOT to celebrate stuff like this.

Here's Why Being In A Long Distance Relationship Is Actually An Advantage

Because distance DOES make love grow fonder.

While we all mope for friends who are in LDRs currently, we are pretty one-dimensional in our perspective. We've been taught to see distance as this great obstacle and hindrance to true love. I am not undermining the struggles every person in a long-distance relationship deals with, I am just saying that maybe distance is actually a significant tool for building a lasting bond. Of course, nothing can replace holding your partner's hand or the little, random pecks on the cheek, or even fighting over who gets the last slice of pizza, but LDRs teach us a lot about love.

Dear Bestie, 10 Things We MUST Do Together Before Either Of Us Gets Married

Let's tick off each and every item from our very own bucket list!

Hey there! We've been talking about each other's weddings since forever now. I can't believe it's time already and we both know that we will soon start a new phase of our lives with our respective partners. I hate to say this, but things will change post marriage. That's okay! After all, change is inevitable but what we have with us is our present so let's not sulk over the future. Now is the time and we must tick off this list before either one of us get married!

The wedding season is here, and honestly, I'm dreading it because people around will want constantly to persuade me to get married as well and bombard me with questions about my own wedding. I'm more than sure that quite a few of you feel exactly the same way, and we're basically sailing on the same boat. And, seriously, people come up with hilarious and downright illogical reasons to persuade you to marry. Here are a few of them!

Yehuda Devir, the world's cutest illustrator husband is at it again and his new work is even cuter than the previous ones (who knew that was even possible!).

Go on, grin till your cheeks hurt as much as mine!

1. When you're an overgrown child.

P.S. - Maya, you lucky, lucky, woman.

2. The story of every relationship, yes?

Seriously, when does this not happen?

3. Haircut number - 5399.

Eventually, you just get used to it, isn't it?

4. Maya likes being inverted when drunk.

Or maybe that's the only way to keep her woozy?

5. I wonder if their positions ever interchange.

Just that kind of a day.

6. The secret of a happy marriage.

Seriously, this tops the list.

7. Better than the Iron Throne.

That dragon detail though.

9. She really should give this a hand, isn't it?

Can't wait to view the marriage from her perspective.

10. Do they have a special room assigned for this at home?

​Also, easy for him - he just wears black. Ugh.

11. Does he bake too?

Or does the alarm notify an event service that just delivers the cake on its own? LOL.

12. Now we know who is sweeter amongst the two.

Could have guessed, eh?

13. Does anyone wonder if he checks his guns too?

Cause he definitely should.

15. No cake this time?

Maybe he doesn't need an alarm for this one!

16. Should have carried their own set.

The bigger you are, the easier the target.

17. OH GOD.

No, I'm not crying. You're crying.

18. We bought it or he bought it?

Cause she sure din't!

19. Mandatory couple check.

There should be a globally acceptable checklist for these.


I Believe In Marriage, But Not The Kind "Society" Says It Should Be

My happy-ever-after is not bound by stamped paper.

From the very first moment I've known love, I've felt it to be a river of joy. I've touched wholeness. I've arrived at a peace so deep, that my very breath was a physical barrier I'd rather not have to simply keep flowing in eternal calmness.

So don't tell me that a piece of paper and a signature defines the oneness of two beings, complete in themselves, overflowing with their enoughness. Don't tell me that you need to publicly claim the exchanges that take place between two full hearts. And don't tell me you need a crowd of hundred witnesses for two souls who've found home in each other.
