(English Translated version of my recent blog for my non- Indian Friends!)
Well guys , this is a light and fun blog , specially for those married couples who might be having their own set of weird issues with their counterpart (for which they are ever ready to tousle or rather dishevel each other’s hair 😛 ) but still their relation is as strong as the Rock of Gibraltar i.e. who might be having arguments at least 2-3 times a week ( I am just being modest, numbers might be on higher side ) but still they can’t even imagine a life without their respective spouses. #Inseparable Couple
Now before you get judgmental buddies, I would like you to get hold of your thinking parrots as it’s not exactly about myself & Nishtha (my dear wife ) as by God’s Grace , we don’t argue that much (though I am so looking forward to having those irritating and meaningless yet adorable old age fights with her in times to come 😮 ) .Having said that, a writer’s story can’t be untouched from his /her own experiences .So you will find our personal touch too in the writing below.
Coming back to the point, well Marriage to me is a beautiful combination of two people in love or made to fall in love) who have been licensed to use choicest of taunts to take a dig at each other’s intentional or unintentional mistakes, resulting into totally uncalled fights, which more often than not strangely end up making their relation even stronger Go ahead , recall how sweet your own immediate few days are, just after you make up subsequent to a cold war situation.
Let’s have a look at some of the common issues ( when I say issue, it is understood that same is due to Husband only ) & corresponding common dialogues ( of Wives of course) in case of typical Indian Couples [or probably for couples all over, not sure as I have married only an Indian girl ….. so far .. 😛 😛 🙂 ] —->
Ok, Here we go : –
1.Being Clumsy – Putting Wet Towel on Bed after Bath
Preface : A problem since the time immemorial !
The Culprit : Husband, who else .
The Perfect Taunt ( by wife of-course ) : I think I have an extra Kid at home ..Why don’t you put whole of your wardrobe on the bed itself, after all I am anyways there to rearrange the stuff !!
2.Being a Bad Cook
Preface : When one fails to undergo basic kitchen training while growing up.
Culprit : ‘Tea only’ type Husbands, who are good for nothing when it comes to cooking , (except making Tea of-course)
The Wife’s Dialogue : Some people just live to eat and not the otherwise…For God’s Sake, can’t you prepare supper atleast once a week !
( a two minute silence follows before the guy starts munching again )
3.Not putting unclean dishes into Kitchen Sink after having food
Preface : This problem is more prevalent where one tries to enjoy T.V. while having food on the bed with side tables (Quiet common with us Indians, who kind of hate dining tables !
Culprit : Ding Dong, it’s Husband again .
Wi-Fi’s Taunt : We should Shift the Kitchen here at Bedroom itself , Shouldn’t we ? (Read Sarcasm)
(Husbands feel helpless at this as they really respect & love their wives – I mean respective single wife obviously )
4.Being always the one who starts the argument
Preface : It’s among the most common allegations levied whereby the self proclaimed Victim (read wife ) digs out the most ferocious references from Vintage period to embarrass the culprit.
Culprit : That’s Right, Poor Hubby Again !
Dialogue ( by Mrs.) : I never want to have any altercations with you but looks like you google thrice a day to find newest excuses to start arguments.
(Husband thinks it’s better to simply accept all the blame or else she is going to make you remember some argument that probably happened Before Christ )
5. Not taking care of kids
Preface : For husbands who really love their kids but time & again, they just somehow end up being proven the super careless Dads .
Culprit : You guessed it Right ,The Father !
Dialogue ( by Kid’s Mom) : These are your kids too, I hope you remember !
#Silence is the best policy.
Enough !! It’s to reverse the tables and share a few instances where choicest of taunts come from husbands : –
- Wife’s Shopping Spree Husband’s Punch : Honey , are you planning to buy the whole bloody market , it’s just 7th of this month dear and my account almost reads Zero.. Looks like we have to get some Loan sanctioned to fill up the Car for this month !
2. Taking forever to get ready for a Party
Husband’s pointed Arrow : Darling, we are just going to someone else’s wedding party and to not our own wedding .
These were just a few household jargon used by entangled yet lovely couples. Husband Wife is probably the only relation besides parents whereby the stakeholders spend maximum time together over a lifetime (I told you , I am talking about Happy souls only , so divorce my friend is certainly ruled out here ).
What is more interesting is the fact that even though both acknowledge the fact that the presence of spouse in their life is indispensable, yet, during arguments , neither of them shy away from pretending that he / she is absolutely fine without she / he.(Read in the same order please). But then this Salt ‘n’ Sugar tic tac is the real charm of the relation called Husband -Wife , isn’t it ?
I hope you enjoyed going through this write up and it would be really great if you all can drop some similar sweet n sour dialogues/conversation in the comments below.
