What will you do/say if you were me…
You are newly married..
You are sitting in between your in-laws ,in a party.
Your cousin-in-law,a guy of marriagale-yet-unmarried age come to the room..
He is not interested in getting married..
Others,mainly women folk tell him benefits of getting married.After a while,a new bride-you-tells him that at some point of life,one needs a partner to hang in there ..
He replies ‘Even if I marry,I jsut hope that I don’t get agirl like you ‘..
Everybody is shocked and stands still..Disturbing silence in the room..
He adds “Poor my brother ” (i.e my husband.)
Everybody (MIL,Sister -in -laws and some other random relatives,all in-laws) looks at each other and looks at me..
I stay shocked,but got out of my embarassment and shock and asked him smiling ‘Did your brother tell you that he is suffering’..
He says “Not really,but i can guess’..
Sister-in-law changes the topic and people move to other rooms..
I stay there shocked,embarassed,drowned in shame wondering and still asking myself why he said so (ever since we met,he met me for the second time that day),that too in front of everybody,in front of people whom I have not still bonded with as the relationship is fairly new..I wonder, to how many more would have this incident spread to..
What would you do or say if you were me…
