Perfect Match ๐Ÿ’–

Life is very uncertain and unexpected at times, at least it is in my experience.

I met my husband only once before we got married, that too in the presence of his parents and my family, so there wasnโ€™t any direct conversation between us, though I did ask him if heโ€™d like tea, in traditional eastern style.

We had a short engagement and got married two months later in the sweltering heat of July.

Here the unexpectedness of life stepped in when I found out that we were perfectly matched.

We share the same taste in music, had similar thoughts about life, religion, and even politics, and there are differences too which made our almost 37 years of marriage interesting as we can be divergently opposite in the food we like, how we think about money matters and our dressing styles.

Kudos to fate and life for finding me a life partner who is perfect for me and I couldnโ€™t have done a better job of it if I had taken matters into my own hands.

  1. Congratulations on your long marriage. 31 years wed for us this year and 33 together. We’re soul mates too……. not bad for an ad in the paper which I responded to! Wouldn’t change it for the world.

  2. While not as common as other countries some here in the States still use Matchmaking services. I was lucky too when I met my Hubby – though it wasn’t arranged. We are together just a few more years than you. If I count from the day we met we are close to 46 years together ๐Ÿ˜€

    It is good to have differences, that couples can work things out and accept those differences is a big key to success ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I’m a great believer in fate, Sadje, but although it may bring us our partner, we still have to make the relationship work. I see differences as complimentary strengths – hubby and I seemed to have muddled through these last 37 years too! ๐Ÿ’–

    1. Thanks a lot! Yes, thatโ€™s so right Mimi. In both cultures, there are successful and failed marriages but I feel this way the parents judge better as they arenโ€™t emotionally invested.


  4. Thanks to your parents for seeing what was most important to draw you closer together over the years.
    I hear a lot of happiness and satisfaction from women friends with arranged marriages.

  5. Sadje I am needing blogging advice. I looked to see if I could reach out by email. I didnโ€™t see where. I am a free WordPress person. I have reached my media limits. I have gotten into photography as many know. I didnโ€™t realize there was a cap on the upload storage. Do you pay for your WordPress? Is that really my only option. I went a couple days without posting, and it made me horribly disappointed. I canโ€™t imagine not being able to have this creative outlet. Any words of wisdom for me will be greatly appreciated ๐Ÿฅฐ

    1. I do pay for my blog, just to get rid of ads. I think you need to delete some older photos and used compressed images to save on storage. Or you can Google it because someone else might have had a better idea than me.

      1. Thank you, it says if I delete media it leaves my blog without a photo. I guess though I could go back and get rid of older ones though. That might be a good option while I think through what I want to do. I appreciate your feedback.
