I am intrigued with relationships

Respect!

Miserliness! And people who get drunk and make a fool of themselves

So many!

Gujju food. Thanda parantha!

Because they are nurturers! that is a tool, that has been coded in their DNA!

I recently got engaged to my long time girlfriend. The two families are more than happy for us. Unlike most love affairs, we did not have to go through the troubles of covincing our parents about our relationship. However, the parents now happen to disagree with us on the way we wanted to get married. They have already started to prepare for a big fat Indian wedding. On the contrary, we want our wedding to be a simple affair; a court marriage followed by dinner. We both don't understand the rationale of spending so much money to please the society. More importantly, we don't want to enter into a marriage penniless. We both are having a tough time convincing our parents for this. Help!

This is truly a progressive and a practical thought. Also, in the olden days big weddings wld be like party time. Now we party every weekend. And yes it is criminally wasteful! I hope you guys succeed in convincing your parents!
