Radio can be so much fun at times. Thanks to Delhi Metro that I get to plug-in my ear phones. While switching the channels in search of a peppy number, I chanced upon an amusing ongoing contest. It’s an initiative by where a caller wins exciting goody-bags. All that the callers have to tell is an absurd question they were asked during the pre-marital meeting.

I stayed on for a while hoping to hear some exciting stuff. A girl called to tell her listeners how pissed she got when the guy she expected to marry asked ‘If his mother asks, would she wear a saree??’

What? Is this for real? I am certain he asks his mom before peeing too :)

The next caller was a guy who endured the excruciating session with his prospective mother-in-law. According to him everything she asked was absurd but he just barfed when she popped the question ‘Is your maid a male or a female?’

Aunty, don’t you think it’s not the right time to joke? Well ideally she should have first asked him, if they HAVE a maid or not but isn’t it equally outrageous. And btw whose intention was she doubting, the guy’s or her daughter’s??

This wasn’t over yet as another girl caller shared her intolerable experience and how embarrassed her mother felt when the guy questioned ‘If the girl is actually Mr. K’s daughter because her looks don’t resemble a tad with her father’

Just FO dude. You don’t deserve to get married at all. With this kind of observation, there is huge possibility of him disowning his wife in case she gets a zit on her face.

It seemed unbelievable to know these questions even hold any relevance for marriage. Either they are dumb-asses or I am not too qualified in this domain. Aren’t marriages made in heaven? Never knew finding your soul-mate can be this insane.

Anyway, the above-mentioned victims are all happily married now, to someone else obviously.

What’s your story??
