“Our story is a typical college romance. We were college sweethearts and we hit it off right off the bat. Getting introduced through a mutual friend in french class, we were smitten and it was love at first sight. Nursing our 4-month-old baby now, I don’t think I can imagine a better life than the one I lived through.
But due to our differences – mainly belonging to different religions, we didn’t proceed any further but we remained good friends. My doubts flew out the window when on a trip with my family to Singapore, I missed him terribly because we couldn’t keep in touch for two weeks. After I returned I told him how I felt and he confessed his feelings to me. So after one whole year of hesitation, fear, and holding back we finally decided to boldly jump into it because we knew what we had was special and rare.
We have been through so much together. After college, he moved back to Bangalore and I moved to Mumbai and later the US for higher education. The testing period came of course when we decided to get married. Since both of us were of the opinion that we wouldn’t proceed without our parent’s blessings, we waited it out till our parents conceded.
We had already been in a long-distance relationship for 8 years and after we got married I stayed with him for just two weeks after which I had to return to the US and he couldn’t move there immediately due to visa issues. So we were in a long-distance relationship post our marriage and finally, the dream came true when he moved to the US in 2017. We were finally together like we had always envisioned.
We did have our moments initially and we still do. Like all couples, we fought about closet space, furniture and setting up the house and the biggest issue till date still continues to be finding the right temperature of the house. I also had to relearn cooking once he moved in because he doesn’t like South Indian or vegetarian food. I would FaceTime my mother in law and learn his family recipes.
But we have progressed past that and we recently had our first baby, a little princess. Our main goal is to teach her the most important thing that all religions preach, to be a good and kind human. 14 years of togetherness and we have finally built our own little world that we dreamt of as teenagers.”
