Our second wedding anniversary is round the corner and to celebrate the day, I asked a few close friends their views on life, love, marriage and the truth behind ‘happily ever after’.
I met Sana and Arif while working at a local FMCG company. And that is where Sana and Arif met each other also! They are the most down-to-earth, simple, fun loving and talented couple. They got married on 21st November 2009 and are currently living in Dubai.
Me: Define the word ‘marriage’.
A&S: Marriage, for us, is friendship. Marriage is what makes you complete. It’s not just a social custom; it’s essential and is a necessity. After getting married, you realize what the term 'better half' means. :)
Me: Arranged or love? Does it matter after you actually start living as a married couple?
A &S: Ours was love so yes, for us it’s love. Yes it matters. You know your spouse from the very beginning so you don't get any surprises. You know all the positives and negatives which helps you in sorting out the issues. Things do get sorted out in both the relations but in a love marriage, it’s kind of easier.
Me: Which song best fits you as a couple?
A&S: 'Everything I do' by Bryan Adams.
Me: A cheesy question. Which fairy tale or story (or maybe even film) couple do you relate yourself as a couple?
A&S: This is a difficult one. We feel we are really special and so far, no one has made a movie on us. :)
Following is Arif and Sana’s sweet note for us. Thanks guys!
"All the best wishes for the couple! They are great people to be with. They will always be there for you. We wish them all the best for their future plans!" :)
