The funny side of adjustments in an inter-community marriage?

I am a Punjabi married to a Telugu and we had an Arranged Marriage πŸ™‚
The top two funny adjustments I made were starting to eat rice for lunch everyday, despite being a Roti person. And waking up at all odd hours of early morning for Puja’s and Homams!:)
Looking forward to read your funny adjustment stories

  1. I think the biggest challenge my sister and my brother-in-law are going to face in their upcoming marriage is trying to learn Bhojpuri and Odia. Actually both end up making new words! But it is really cute to see the effort they put.

  2. I love the way the women have made the adjustments and are quiet proud of it. I was like that many many years ago trying desperately to cook like my husband’s mother but i never succeeded so i just gave up and employed a cook.Now if he cribs i tell him to fire the cook or forget his mothers cooking.Or i tell him today the food is made exactly like meri ma ke haath ka khana.I sleep early and i am a light sleeper ,a slight sound wakes me up but at one point we had only one TV that too in our bedroom .My husbands habit of watching TV late at full volume would make me want to kill him but i got my revenge back i used to put on the TV as soon as i woke up while he was in deep sleep.He promptly got the TV relocated to the living room.I love moong ki daal and he hates it ,he loves urad ki safed dal ,i feel like puking looking at it so now i get both the dals made ,we eat together with our separate dals.Our marriage is great because he knows if he doesn’t adjust i never will ,so we both are careful.tit for tat and tat for tit i guess.

  3. I like the way you have made it very clear, that you had an arranged marriage, would be interesting to note the story behind this arranged marriage. Usually people assume its a love marriage.
    Coming to the adjustment part. I married a Bengali, I still cant categorize it into love or arranged, as it was too soon to fall in love but not fit enough to be called arranged, so i say, we met and they arranged it for us. πŸ˜€
    So, we are an eggitarian family. Never did we eat any other living thing other than that. Our kitchen never saw, beyond the Egg. Post marriage, i learnt to cook Butter chicken and Fish. Initially i use to stack disposable gloves to hold non veg, or struggle with karchis and spoons. Now i am a pro, i flip the machli with my dayan hand. Lol. But i still dont eat non-veg, i cook it for my husband though.

  4. My husband is an owl and me a lark! We still continue the same way and because we do so we fight less! Because we barely get to see each other! Or are not at the top of pour game to fight for mornings he is groggy and anytime after 9.30 P.M I am out!
