When your parents find a well-educated, presentable, and well-settled boy for you, then the next thing left on the list is to go and meet him in person.

Not one but three

Well, Anusha Sharma had three such experiences. Whether she rejected the guys (we hope she did!) or they did is not clear but let’s know the reasons which are not only weird but are also evidence of social stigmas.
One of the guys was quite curious if Anusha wears jeans and ‘of course’ she won’t wear it after marriage. The second guy didn’t want her to spend her money on her parents after marriage. The third was probably the funniest, as he didn’t want Anusha to continue her studies after marriage on the pretext of the fact that dreams are not always fulfilled.

The Snaskar is in your dress

Hema was a UPSC aspirant who was staying in Chennai for her studies. One day while enjoying her sweet relationship with her bed, she got an urgent call from her mother. She was supposed to get ready as a boy’s parents are coming to meet her. Without any option, she jumped out of the bed and managed to freshen up. As it was a hostel, she decided to dress in casuals that are quite sober as per the society. After some time, she meets the boy’s parents and they had a great time together.
After few days, they were supposed to come and meet her with the boy. Instead, they received a call from boy’s father that if she wears such clothes she cannot be a Sanskari girl. This was coming from guy’s parents who were very well educated and an elder brother who was settled in the USA.

With love from America

Binitha George Mathai meets a guy who is residing in America with Indian origin. On her mother’s instruction, she went to meet the guy. From starting, the meeting was getting haywire. It started with typical questions like enquiring about her sexual life, she politely smiled and let the question pass. However, after that, the drama started. The guy went on blabbering that how he wanted to have four kids and she is supposed to stay at home to look after the kids. Also, she will cook and he will take her out for buying groceries. Irritated by the time, Binitha sarcastically asked if he sees her as someone who is a nanny, cook, and cleaner for him while he goes out to party. Guess what he said? Yes! He wants to enjoy his life and thus want to marry a ‘traditional’ Indian girl. Binitha calmly looked at him and said that she has Clinomania and expectedly he freaked out that led to rejection.

However, being on the polite side she responded and said that her savings are now low as she recently invested in the remodeling of their house as a gift to her parents. With a quite stare, the guy replied that she cares too much for her parents. If she decides to do less then they can talk forward or he is rejecting her. She is glad he rejected.

Mr. Showoff

With a big ego and big mouth, this guy kept on boasting about his marks to his prospective bride. Nothing wrong in that unless you keep doing it just to show you are better than the other.

The next thing to boast was a visit to the USA that our lady also did and it irked the guy. At last, when it came to the salary he rejected her as she was earning more. In short, the lady was rejected as she was over qualified than him.
