Shaadi Ke Side Effects


As soon as you are out of college and start earning your parents switch from “Study well” to “get married soon” mode, even their blessings change from “May god give you success and wisdom” to “May god give a good life partner”. Parents feel that giving their child good education and then finding a perfect life partner for him/her is the main motive of their life. They want to finish these responsibilities ASAP so that they can enjoy their life tension free. And once you celebrate the silver jubilee of your presence on this earth, your whole family (also count the relatives you last met when you used to suck your thumb) start getting worried about your marriage.
Anyways, all these well wishers vanish after dancing to the tunes of DJ and enjoying the lavish food on your wedding. And it’s just the two newly wedded souls left to deal with the after effects (read side effects) of marriage. Here are some of the Side effects of marriage discovered by me ;)

1.   You can no more shop or go out all alone, if you are spotted by your pals they will treat you like a poor thing, or will suspect some problems going on between you and your partner.

2.   Elderly start expecting good news from you every time they call you. I feel they won’t mind if you deliver a baby on 6 month anniversary of your wedding.

3.   Whenever you feel tired and want to hug the bed tight, your partner will feel hungry. Drag yourself to the kitchen.

4.   When your partner compliments your beauty you can’t smile like Sharmila Tagore from Kashmir ki kali and say “it’s just my natural beauty” because he has seen you applying that facemask and beauty cream. Kill me...!!

5.   Every time you enter the bathroom after he used it you will shout, it may start with how to keep the mug and can go on till your imagination and strength allows ;)

6.    All the heavy cloths and jewellery you bought during your marriage thinking you will wear it someday (in my case even count the matching purses and sandals) will do nothing good but just eat space in your cupboard and will remind you time to time how well you wasted your hard earned money on them. Someday never comes!

7.   You will wish to have two Television sets in your home or a button in remote control to make him disappear, whenever he will express his wish to watch news or cricket match at the scheduled time of your favourite TV show.


However your days will be more eventful than they used to be during your singlehood. Because someone will always be around to talk to you like a friend, tease you and fight with you like your siblings, care for you and guide you like your dad, love you like a true lover and piss you off like a real husband :P
So if you are fine with these side effects, don’t wait anymore let the wedding bells ring.  :D

The bitter sweet of married life. I still think life's better as a spinster.

Nice.. add one more thing.. whenever you want to eat ur favorite thing like chocolate or cake then you have to first make sure to keep half of that for your beloved.. else he might either snatch the whole thing or feel bad that you didn't care about him.. trust me i never used to share chocolates and couple of other things.. but now i m soo used to eating just half of that :)

Sweta said...

@Rituparna: But no one will let you be that :)

@Rani: Thats a very valid point!!

Tirumal Rao said...

Nice one!!

The moot question is, how do we point out our pet peeves tactfully? Who said marriage was easy! If both partners sense the other is generally considerate it does help tide us over the bad patches.

I was reminded of the time I travelled Second AC from Mumabi to Kochi. On the way a newly married couple joined. In the night when they were to sleep the bride noticed that the husband snored. I thought to myself: imagine being stuck with it for the rest of one's life.

Sweta said...

@Tirumala: Thanks :)

Sweta said...

@KayEm: True!!

@Sunbyanyname: Thats tough !! but may be she get used to it later ;)

Swati Murti said...

Reshma said...

heh heh interesting list...
One more addition could be how you have to share the storage space to accomodate what is his junk and your junk in reality but priceless possessions nevertheless to each one:)
plus you are now on the other side of the line and can start dishing out advices to people, after shaadi gives you a license for many more things than it takes away:)

I feel that people who have stayed in a hostel, specially during college days, are mentally better suited to make all the adjustments. You are hardened by the snores and disgusting toilet habits of your roomie and all that grooming comes in useful when you have to share your room (and a lot else) again with your better half.

Hahaha, There HAS TO be the male version of this as well. I need to read it soon.

Sweta said...

@Lakhwinder: Then eat is ASAP... ;)

@Kumar Bibek: let me know if you find one of such kind :)

Sweta said...

@Reshma: without eating the Shadi ka laddu you have so much knowledge... inpressive ;)

Hello Sweta...I just came across your blog while Googling "Shaadi ke side effects" :) .......My personal side effect to add on to existing ones is- After 11 hrs of office work & travel, you come back home and by any chance you give a call to your best friend (even if male) oryour parents; you get to hear "Haan, haan....office ke liye time hain, dosto ke liye time hain, sabke liye time hain...Ek main hi hoon, for whom you don't have any time..God! With whom am I married" ..........Well, why can't she see, that I am married to her for the rest of my life and I see her face the first thing in morning and the last thing at night ????

Sweta said...

Thanks Kush...
But being married to her and seeing her face in morning and night is fine.. still she wants to spend quality time with you... may be thats why she complains :)
