Arrange marriage is a no-no for almost all the girls in this 21st century. But some girls are forced to have an arranged marriage due to several reasons. Now, getting an arranged marriage does not mean that you need to sell away all your dreams and likings to your in-laws.
Marriage is a bonding of love and respect. If the in-laws can ask such questions, then it is for sure, they aren’t going to respect you at all after marriage.
In this article, I have compiled some commonly asked questions by the would- be-parent-in-laws. These were asked to my different friends at different times. Some answers I got from them, but some I did not. Here are the compilations for you.
“Are you going to continue your job after marriage?”
This question tops the list of the silly questions that are asked a girl during the so-called interview session.
And the perfect answer given by someone is- “If my hubby is able to buy me Armani, Dolce & Gabbana always, can take me out for dining in five-stars, support my family whenever they need, and then what’s the necessity of my job?’’
“Are you comfortable in Saree? Because you have to wear Saree in your in-laws native house”
Well, this question tops second on the list. And one of the perfect answers I heard from one of my friends is- “Well, my family also wants your son to wear a Dhoti-kurta always whenever he visits my house. Hope your son will be comfortable with this.’’
“You need to take care of your in-laws”
This question is logical what I think. But when my friend was asked this question, the answer that she gave was more logical and rational.
“I don’t have a problem in taking care of my in-laws. But I need the same favour from your son.”
“You have to cook food for us daily. Do you know cooking?”
Now I think this question is very humiliating. Are these parents looking for a bride for their son, or looking for a cook?
One of my sisters was asked this silly question, but she answered well very decently. Here is what she answered- “ I hope your son also knows how to prepare dishes. Because we will be sharing the work.’’
“Do you have male friends?”
I think there should be offices where only girls will be working, like the girls’ schools and colleges. Isn’t it a very disgusting question?
See what my friend replied- “I have friends, and I call them friends. Actually, I did not get any opportunity to join an all-girls’ office.’’
“What is your blood group?”
Is this a question to ask? Well, I don’t know what answer was given to this question. But it seems that the parents are seeking for a bone-marrow transplant. They are actually not finding the right and compatible bride for their son.
“You are skinny”
Now what to say against this type of unwanted questions. Just ignore and leave the room.
“You are fatty”
Well, the only answer should be- ‘’ are you searching for a bride? Or you are searching for a model for your company?’’
“You have a dark complexion”
Well, these parents must be the promoters of the fairness creams and want to promote their brand. While selecting bride they are aware of complexion, but loves the black beauty Bipasha Basu. What a contradiction!!
“Do you like hard drinks?”
The parents are really breaking the limit. Well, we hope their son has never touched even a single peg of whisky or Rum in his life. Hopefully no one of that family have ever tasted any hard drinks!!
“Are you ready to have kids?”
OMG!! These parents are searching for a compatible bride for their son or finding a lady to increase the family is their primary goal? This is really a stupid one. They are not looking for a bride, but a baby-producing machine!!
All these questions are simply awkward and lessen the dignity of any girl. Stop facing these questions with dignity.
One parent did the extreme situation. They asked for the bio-data of the bride. Well, these parent-in-laws must be searching for an employee, not a bride. Their house might not be a home, it must be an office, where the employees will be selected from the bio-data.
A height of disrespect. Do you support this culture?
