    Offshore after Marriage

    Give false hopes of meeting friends

    Onshore before Marriage

    Onshore After Marriage

    Well said. Before marriage one can follow his thoughts. Mom shouts but who cares. But after marriage one has to always please his wife. Should ensure that she does not frown at things we do. In the process one has to do a lot of sacrifices after marriage. Life becomes restricted.

    Before marriage, life is like a unbound orchid. After marriage it is a small garden with boundaries on all sides.

    One feels more responsible after marriages. One can really feed the weight on his shoulders after marriage.

    Oh thats a real good rewind you have done Varun Sharma. It is just the same for most of the men folk (of course exceptions are there definitely).

    For woman the entire scenario changes.

    Yes..u r true anusma... for men its just change of their activites but for a girl, its a new world.. new people, new home.. every thing seems to be changed like u have landed in an alien world....

    Do you know what all changes we make when we get married? Get into a whole new family where we just do not know what the traditions are, actually it is just nil for some new brides.
    New husband, new in laws where everyone keeps watching you even for a small mistake you do.
    You are supposed to get adjusted to their family overnight, forgetting your own parents, friends and relatives but the men are not supposed to. The girl is supposed to do all the sacrifice.
    So the changes you do after we get into your lives doesn't make any sacrifice at all. all the times you men crib that you have got tied up and you are not able to do anything, you lost your freedom etc. Have your ever thought of a women's plight there?

    I want to suggest what is life before marriage & after marriage with a small example.
    before marriage
    Boy :Yes.At last.It was so hard to wait.
    Girl:Do u want me to leave?
    Boy :NO! Don't even think about it.
    Girl:Do u love me?
    Boy :Of course! Over and over!
    Girl: Have you ever cheated on me?
    Boy: NO! Why are you even asking?
    Girl: Will you kiss me?
    Boy: Every chance I get!
    Girl: Will you hit me?
    Boy: Are you crazy! I"m not that kind of person!
    Girl: Can I trust you?
    Boy: Yes.
    Girl: Darling!

    After marriage…
    just read it from bottom to top now.

    I think You are right. But what you have discussed is a guy's perspective, did you ever tried to find a girl's perspective.

    Girl's Perspective Before Marriage
    Get up
    Have Your Breakfast
    Go to Office
    Call your parents once
    Come Back from office
    Have Dinner

    After Marriage
    Get Up
    Prepare Breakfast for family
    Prepare Lunch for Kids
    Send Kids to School
    Ask Husband to get up
    Serve him Bed Tea
    Help Husband to get ready for his office
    She herself gets ready for her office
    Go to Office
    Call Husband-"I have reached"
    Call parents
    Before having lunch, ask husband if he had lunch?
    Then call kids, if they have reached home safely?
    Ask kids if they have had their lunch?
    Then, Have Lunch
    Call several times at home to inquire about kids whereabouts
    Get back Home
    Help Kids in their Homw Work
    Prepare Dinner
    Listen to Husband-How was his day and all.
    Sleep at 1
    Again get up at 6

    You guys just see your own perspective. Girl's life changes much more than yours. So take care and Respect Women

    Dear Vinayak,

    It is not what you men say irritates us. It is the way you seem to think that marriage is a bond on your part and we women have nothing to lose.

    We are the ones who lose everything, you just lose your freedom , that too only some of you. The rest just doesn't think of the hurt the wife goes through.

    Hi Varun,

    What you said is correct but only to some extent.


    I appreciate your sayings. What you said is exactly true. But who cares it. We think only from our side. Not from girl side. Many people say that it is their duty. But you have given the chart correctly. Here I am getting a doubt whether you are married or not. If married are you helping your wife or not.

    This is all for fun. Don't take anything to heart. We are discussing only. These are all our feelings only.
