    1. At the time of marriage, a north Indian girl has more boyfriends than her age.
    2. Before marriage, she looks almost like a bollywood heroine and after marriage you have to go around her twice to completely hug her.
    3. By the time she professes her undevoted love to you, you are bankrupt because of the number of times you had to take her out to movie theatres and restaurants. And you wait longingly for her dowry.
    4. The only dishes she can think of to cook is paneer butter masala, aloo sabji, aloo gobi sabji, aloo matar, aloo paneer, that after eating all those paneer and aloos you are either in the bed with chronic cholestrol or chronic gas disorder.
    5. The only growth that you see later in your career is the rise in your monthly phone bill.
    6. You are blinded by her love that you think that she is a blonde. Only later do you come to know that it is because of the mehndi that she applies to cover her gray hair.
    7. When you come home from office she is very busy watching "Kyonki saas bhi kabi bahu thi" that you either end up eating outside or
      cooking yourself.
