Arranged marriage

Hey girl, you’re now five over twenty. 

You’ve lived with us for time plenty

It’s time to get you married and send you away

We knew this time would come some day. 

No boyfriend? No problem. Arranged marriage is your solution.

We will find you the perfect boy,

Meet every prospect behaving all coy.

The girl who wasn’t allowed to be out till late due to feared danger..

Will now be married off and sent to live with an absolute stranger..

Being an unmarried woman over the age of 25..is like a socially unacceptable culprit who has no right to be alive. 

I wish things change socially, for the better.

And soon ALL families encourage their girls to fulfil their dreams and be a go-getter.

Coz life is not only about getting married and settling down. 

Life is about living to the fullest without any pressure or frown.

Go marry someone who you know is going to be the love of your life. 

Be it arranged or love, marriage should be with the person who you’re happy to be called his wife.
