"No He does not drink... absoultely not" - How to cheat in an arranged marriage


Arranged Marriage, still an everyday occurance in India. In most sane cases it is not as bad as you think it is. The couple gets to meet, talk and if things go well they decide to get engaged. The not so good part is that the whole family gets involved in making decisions, so if your mom does not like red and the girl's favourite color happens to be red... we could be in a bit of a soup.

So there is this girl, really close to my heart. No you idiots, she is a good friend. She got married a couple of years ago and now has a kid. When I was back in India, last summer, a few friends got to discussing her and I found a few intresting things.

So my friend's family decides to meet up with this guys family to talk things thro. All is well, the minor wrinkles are ironed out. The girls mom has one last issue. She does not like men who drink or smoke. Given that a relative works in the same office as the groom, she decides to call him to check on this.

So this is how the call goes....

Girls mom (GM) : "Hello, how are you ?"

Relative (R) : "Doing good. How are you ? Howz your family ?"

GM:" good good, I wanted to talk to you about YYYY, does he drink, does he smoke ?"

R: "No way, he is a very nice guy, he does not drink , he does not smoke. I am having dinner, can I call you later ?"

GM: "Sure, and thanks for the information"

R: "no problem. Bye", hangs up and to the waiter "Can we get another pitcher of beer please ?"

R: talking to someone sitting next to him "Guess who called ? It was the girls mom and they were asking about you ..."

YYYY: "Ha ha ha, I do not drink... and do not smoke...."

R: "Let's drink to that.... ha ha ha"


And if you still dont get it, read the converstaion, make sure you follow the names.

And thats juz the guy's point of view. From the gals's side its alwez "She is such a nice gal who respects elders, is god-fearing, obedient, knows cooking....etc etc....". The only differece is that the gal's side lie less and guy's side more....
