Counting my blessings!

I dislike putting up status updates on the blog but this is the one time I'd like to make an exception, for this time, I am writing about my friends.
In the last 3 months, I have attended 3 whole weddings! And yes, I mean '3' 'whole' 'weddings!' I must have done something right because the fact that I am unemployed, has meant that I have been able to attend the 3 weddings I would've dropped everything I was doing to attend, without having to drop anything I was doing! I got to be a part of all the little functions and all the big ones too...I got to see a gujju-maru wedding, a tam-punjabi wedding and a punjabi-jain wedding! Talk about national integration eh? I loved being a part of all the three weddings and was happier that all the three wanted me there for every little thing that was going on...I'm so happy, I almost did consider, for a whole day too at that, my own prospects of marriage...although, by the end of the day, I did conclude I wasn't marriage material and would never be grown up enough to shoulder the responsibility attached to a successful marriage...nor do I see myself ever becoming a caring and loving father.
Honestly though, I am over-joyed with the union of my 3 best friends with the loves of their lives...may they live out their days, together in marital bliss!
I thank whoever gave me the opportunity, from the bottom of my heart. There seems to be a God somewhere, after all! I mean, how many people can say they were with their best friends through every single step of the journey towards martyrdom...oh wait...I meant marriage!
I love you guys!

lol!!can never understand the reason behind guys not wanting to get married! Why this a matter of fact women are the ones who should be petrified of marriage coz its their life that changes totally....managing a house with all the chores, cooking n if u r working then god save u!!

Its almost impossible to manage both work n home. Wonder why men r more scared of marrying when it shud actually b women!! :P

@Ria:> Fear? No! It's downright hysterical paranoia for us!
Guys or rather, males, of all species, are's the natural instinct in us. Look at lions, elephants and the ilk, males don't live with the group...we're irresponsible, arrogant and absolutely selfish. We'd like to stay that way too! Falling in love and getting married means we have to be responsible, mature and understanding...even you will agree we're incapable of being all of those!
Nature herself, over years of evolution, has failed to program these things into us. So when someone sells marriage as an idea that would call us to be unlike ourselves, it is but natural that we shirk away in fear!
