Yo, we heard ya, girls! We completely understand that being unmarried after you cross 30 is a nightmare every Indian woman experiences. Girls in India are expected to settle (in marriage) before they hit that 30-year-old mark and in case you have gone against that norm for whatever reason, you become the pet project of every aunt.
Women in their 30's are grilled and tortured with some of the silliest questions possible. Your decision to enjoy the spinsterhood for a few more years starts to take a toll on you when you find yourself flooded with unnecessary concerns sprouting from your aunts. We feel you, woman! And to offer our sympathies, we have compiled a list of 12 such silly questions thrown at every unmarried Indian girl in her 30's.
To make the situation a little easy to handle, we have also come up with witty (and mostly silent) reactions by the unmarried lot.
If you are bold enough and tired of all these interrogative sessions, you may want to use these one-liners (aloud) to your defense.
How sweet of you to offer your prowess in dealing with love matters. I am sure my parents love you more than me and will accept my bf (if any) in the family just for you.
Ladke to abhi bhi line mai khade hai aunty...aap tension mat lo.
Divorcees are also men in my view....and experienced at handling a marriage too. *winks*
Kya! Kya!!! Kya!!!! That's my eureka moment!
Ab wo bhi mai hi sochu ki log kya sochenge?
Aapko mera dimaag ka dahi na karne mai koi problem hai kya?
Waah aunty waah! Aap to abhi tak theek nahi hui, aaj bhi logo ko pareshan karti rehti hai.
OMG! How will I ever be able to thank you for this amazing offer? You are my savior!
Haa kyu nahi...ye to mera bachpan ka sapna tha ki koi NRI se shadi ho jaye meri aur mai uske saath ek paraye desh jaake rahu. Mai khud se ye kaam kabhi nahi kar sakti na..
Oh I see, isliye aapne jaldi shadi ki thi kya?
Hamari generation bahot achhe se samajhti hai ki one should not rush into marriage. Examples of marital errors are abound in our society.
I really don't understand how my bhai-behen ki shadi is dependent on me! I'll need to do some research on this. Till then, thank you and tada....
