Haha! I don't think I actually remember. Our wedding was a bit of a haze; we had a traditional Kerala wedding with the 'thali' ceremony at like 5 am in the morning - so really, I was still a bit asleep. Just awake enough to make sure that I was marrying the right person :P

 

Thank god for photos :P

Any addiction is bound to have ricochet effects on a relationship - especially when it involves other people, albeit virtual ones. Personally, I think it did affect our relationship a bit - more so, because my wife hasn't really taken to social media as I have. And also the fact that a lof of my work involves being on social media, and hence sometimes 'lack of attention' has driven her mad occasionally.

However, what I don't get are people in relationships over-indulging in social media PDA. Get a room for everyone else's sake :)
