I always felt that marriage was a final destination. That you arrive and that’s it. Twenty-two years of fairly peaceful married life is not a joke. It takes a lot from both spouses and Rupesh and I have played it quite well. We have known and loved each other since college. We understand each other and are compatible too. That’s why we got married in 1995.
But life is long, even in its seemingly short span. It shows us a lot and changes us in ways we would have never imagined, presents circumstances that are very hard to deal with.
