How does it feel to be married ?
I asked her after her marriage,when she was back to college.
She looked blank,”It was bearable” was her answer.
She was in love with him,she said she could not bear to not see him for a day,for an hour,they looked so good together,I expected to hear Omar Khayyam from her or something similar.
I sat next to her waiting.She saw my face and said “You are innocent, hopeless romantic aren’t you?”
I thought of her the same way!
“In his village near Tehran , they had this custom that we had to sleep on a white bed sheet and the blood stains on it had to be displayed like a curtain after the first night on the window. They did it. He wanted us to follow the customs”
Picture : is taken from a survey conducted in Delhi , asking boys if they wanted their wives to be virgins ? 89% said yes, and gave their reasons.
The survey was conducted in 2012 and interviewed 600 boys aged 21-28years.
