I hv never been married so this ans is coming purely from my observations of other ppl's marriages and my single life.



**What's the worst thing about being married?


IMO there can be more than just one WORST thing abt being married. So here's my list:



-You have to always think about doing things TOGETHER (u sort of lose the freedom of doing whatever u want whenever u want)


-Being married to someone u dun love and vice versa (yes that can happen!)


-Not being able to flirt to your heart's desire w.o. having to put up with Jealousy fits and dirty looks!


-Having to think about birth control shit (pull n pray lol!)


-If things turn out real bad, some nasty husbands/wives can play it REAL tough when wanting a Separation/Divorce. (similar thing is happening to one of my friends right now and he's in hell at the moment - cos she's not giving him the divorce!)


-Having to use 'Not tonight hunny' line'! I mean who bloody cares about that line when ur single??


-Having to be extra careful with ur expenses just cos ur no longer single! (*urrrrrrrg!*)


-Having to be on a constant vigil just to stroke the Male ego! (*to get things done ofcourse*)


-The need to cook something different everyday just cos there's a man at the table. I mean when ur single u can even eat Vegemite toast in a row for one whole week!


-Having to deal with disgusting farts, burps, snoring, wet towels on the floor and toilet-seat issues!


-Having to please someone all the time. I mean I'd just like to be myself 24/7 if possible! (*eat garlic bread and not worry abt him smelling it and going ewww!*)


-Having to vaccum around hairy legs resting on the carpet while watching Sports 24/7!


-HAVING AN EXTRA PERSON TO ARGUE WITH! I dun need that in my life cos there r enough ppl tearing my hair out right now. LOL!


-Having to deal with his massive perving and still try to love him cos 'cmon all men r like that', duh!



Will think of some more later on...nice one Sol!

Ankur said...

The worst part... ummm...

May be the responsibilities which really make u vulnerable!!!

comfortably numb said...

having to shr urself wid sum1 but cum 2 thnk of it, tht's probably d best thing abt marriage as well...did i make any sense???
probably not...wel @least i hv d xcuse of not being married yet:D

Solitaire said...

@ HAHA Keshi.

I think an intercontinental marriage might suit you best.

These days there are stories of many couples who have their own houses and apartments "to minimize conflicts" and are perfectly happy with that.

Solitaire said...

@ Ankur,

What sorta responsibilities?

The fact that have to make sure that you don't leave the toilet seat up everytime you use the restroom or something else?

Solitaire said...

@ Comfortably numb,

No sense at all! I am confused now...

Do you want to get married or you don't want to?

Iceman said...

Hahahaha...
not qualified to answer this question...

Solitaire said...

@ Iceman,

You mean you have NO assumptions? Come on...I am sure you have some observations at least!

Tuhin said...

u can't do the "10 things" u can do while you are single ;)

Ankur said...

@Sneha

**The fact that have to make sure that you don't leave the toilet seat up everytime you use the restroom or something else?

shucks... looks like u havent read my 10 secrets!!
i hate dirty toilets and specially when ppl dont lift the seat up!!

but i was talking abt responsibilites which are related to work and daily life!!

Cheers!!!

Ankur said...

@Keshi

u can actually do a Phd!!!

Dr Keshi, specialized in worse excuses y not to get married!!!
lolzzzzz

Keshi said...

**I think an intercontinental marriage might suit you best.

haha!



**These days there are stories of many couples who have their own houses and apartments "to minimize conflicts" and are perfectly happy with that.


Then why do they get married in the first place? Just to hv the MARRIED tag?

*rolling eyes*


Keshi.

Cinderella. said...

I totally agree to Keshi's 3rd point !


You just cant eye candy anymore. And have to say no when nice hot guys approach you..and thats been happening to me since 10th grade - I missed out all the fun man !!!!!!!!!!!!

Solitaire said...

@ Keshi,

I guess they want to have kids and some ppl are really strict about not having kids out of wedlock.

Maybe they want the best of both worlds...being single and married!

Solitaire said...

@ Ankur,

I am talking about leaving the toilet seat up and not lifting the toilet seat up!

Yikes!!

Solitaire said...

@ Cinderella,

How did you become a jal pari? Sab kuch blue blue lag raha hai.

Your statement makes it look like you have been MARRIED since tenth grade!

Solitaire said...

@ Tuhin,

10 things?? Hmmmm.
you wanted us to get curious, didn't you?

Iceman said...

Well.. Observations are fine... I have plenty.. but i would not make any assumptions or judgment based on those... I'd rather let them satay as they r...

And when u assume things .. u r in trouble...
ASS-U-ME... when I assume.. I am making an ass out of myself and u... so never assume...

Ankur said...

@Sneha


hahhaha

Keshi said...

since 10th grade Cindy? awwwww...thats been very harsh on urself woman!



Keshi.

Keshi said...

Sol..


**I guess they want to have kids and some ppl are really strict about not having kids out of wedlock.


I u'stand that. But then they can hv kids together but not share assets together?


Keshi.

Solitaire said...

@ Iceman,

How about presume?

That is quite a wise statement you make there but more often than not we tend to pass judgment on people who are in situations that we have never been in.

"OMG! She is marrying THAT guy. He is so ugly."

"OMG! A divorcee!! Is he desperate to marry HER?"

"She is a housewife!? Must be lazy."

etc...etc...

Solitaire said...

@ Ankur,

Seeeeeeeeeeeeeee...

not even married and already miscommunication!!


Can a man and a woman ever see eye to eye?

J said...

For moi.. it's the space. my space and my time.

Solitaire said...

@ Keshi,

Maybe they want to but are afraid that they might end up having a divorce...so "let's play it safe honey....you live in Chicago and I live in New York!"

Meanwhile, the guy can do whatever he wants with the toilet seat and the girl can eat cheese toast everyday and not care!

Keshi said...

Iceman so I assumed? And nah Im not afraid to assume in this case.

Cos Sol asked Single ppl to ASSUME here


**Those who are not married yet...just go ahead and tell us what you assume is the worst.



Besides, why be so afraid to look at someone's life and make a statement? It's not so much of JUDGING their lives...but surely if someone is having a terrible marriage, it is terrible..nothing less, nothing more.

Am I making sense? :)


Keshi.

Keshi said...

**so "let's play it safe honey....you live in Chicago and I live in New York!"


hahaha Sol!


ok I so get it now :)


Keshi.

Keshi said...

Totally agree with Jono..thats the number one fact for me too!

Keshi.

Iceman said...

well... assume presume all are the same...
A wise person seldom uses assumptions to fill in the blanks. ie. questions arising of curiosity for which u do not have an answer, because its none of ur business in the first place.

"OMG! She is marrying THAT guy. He is so ugly."

"OMG! A divorcee!! Is he desperate to marry HER?"

"She is a housewife!? Must be lazy."


Again.. none of my business.. so I'd rather not make any such statements...

Solitaire said...

@ J,

Yep...

There could be a nagging wife waiting at home saying, "Where are you honey? Its already 8 pm. Get your butt her NOW!"

OR

An irritated husband saying, "I have no space in the closet!! You took up all the space to put your Manolo Blahniks!"

Ankur said...

@Sneha

yes.... pyar ki bhasha samjho.. yahi hai marriage ki kahani!!! :)

jisne nahi samjhi woh karega badjubani!! :)

wah wah!! :D

Solitaire said...

@ Keshi and Iceman,

I think we all have opinions about everything...some are strong, some not so strong. It is not necessary that we all have experienced every one of those situations.

It is a presumption that most of us will get married one day. So it is hard for me to believe that we don't have any idea about what the worst and best things about marriage could be.

You are making sense Keshi.

Keshi said...

Lets be honest. Its better to be single than being stuck in shitful marriage!

:)

Keshi.

Solitaire said...

@ Ankur,

The question is..

"where is the pyar"?

Solitaire said...

@ Keshi,

That's what Ashu has said in her latest post too!

Keshi said...

I agree Sol. I mean its OK to make statements and opinions abt others n their lives. There's no way we can avoid that once we r born into this world!

Keshi.

Ankur said...

@Keshi

Marriage is like any other institution u believe in, just how much one can give and ready to appreciate others with tiny miny adjustments.... n it works!!!

Its beautiful and i want to be a part of this institution!! :)

Iceman said...

keshi...

that bounced over... :|

Ankur said...

@Sneha

pyar kahan hai yeh bahut bada sawal hai, u have to find it in small things which can make u happy...

Marriage is something where (as per me) 2 ppl agree to live together till the end of their lives... To search love is very difficult but to give love and then think of being loved is easier!!! :)

Solitaire said...

Marriage is an institution where a man loses his bachelor's degree and a woman gains a master's degree.

:)

Solitaire said...

@ Ankur,

"......to think of being loved is easier..."

Be careful..sochte reh jaoge.

Keshi said...

I meant

'in A shitful Marraige'.


:)
Keshi.

Ankur said...

@Sneha

Agreed.. it its abt been Master i dont have any problems, but as far as me is concerned, i know its a name of reciprocation, may it be trust, love or making u happy!!!!

Every relationship has a give and take, there arent any relationships where u dont care for the taking part, no exceptions even, or atleast u expect!!!

Keshi said...

lol Ankur ur saying that to me as if I hated Marriage. I was only answering Sol's qn in this post. :) Im not for or against Marriage.


Keshi.

Keshi said...

Iceman (Zebraman) wut d u mean? :)


Keshi.

Ankur said...

@Sneha

u know, sochne ko bahut kuch hai, magar bura sochne se acha hai ki acha socho...

Its easy to feel dejected, not loved, hated... but feeling being in love makes u happy!!!

so mai toh sochoonga!! :)

maverick said...

dont wnt to have any pre conceived notions on it..will let u knw once i experience them :)

Solitaire said...

@ Maverick,

UFf! And when will that be? Hopefully this blog is alive and kicking till then.

Solitaire said...

@ Ankur,

Ok then think hard...
Meanwhile, I will go DO something about it.

Solitaire said...

@ Keshi,

Its funny how people think that saying one thing bad about marriage means you are totally against it!!

No no no people!!

Everything has its good and bad! Life is not a fairy tale!

Ankur said...

@Sneha & @Keshi

no no no... i dont say that sayin one bad thing means u r against marriage, as u said one thing i replied to the same!!
:)

Ankur said...

@Sneha

**Meanwhile, I will go DO something about it.

kya ladka dekhne jaa rahi hai kya
hehhe

hahaha Sol that was to funny!


Keshi.

Keshi said...

Amen Sol!

I cant u'stand why ppl r so scared to say something so honest. I mean life is both good and bad. And like u said it's not a fairytale!

Some marriages work..some fail..
Some ppl live longer..some die young..
Some eggs r good..some r rotten...
Some trees flower..some dont


cmon guys be a sport and contribute to this great post w.o. sounding like Sol asked u to make JUDGEMENTS abt a particular marriage. :) We r talkin here in GENERAL sense! And no, thats not sin for godssakes!


Keshi.

Ankur said...

@Sneha & @Keshi

and exactly.. its not a fairytale!!

so we have happy moments and we have some not so happy...
and by sayin that u need to find love in there, it means that loving those not so happy!! :D

btw.. i m not into it, looks like all the blame is put on my shoulders for sayin its an institution!!

Keshi said...

And some MEN here, plz stop trying to sound so PERFECT. Cos we know ur not perfect.

lol!

Keshi.

SS said...

in laws? ;)

A Liberated Soul said...

I am married and I think the worst the thing about marriage is you can never have the 'I dont care' attitude. You will start caring each and everything and unknowingly forget that there was a time you used to think 'Oh forget! I dont care man!' ....hehe....

Solitaire said...

@ SS,

AHA!! Here comes the humor!

AWESOME answer!

:)

Solitaire said...

@ A liberated soul,

Yeah!! Something like Keshi said.

If you have not taken your birth control pill while not married, its fine...but you can't really say that when you are married!!!!

:)

Thank you "married person" for coming in with your words of wisdom.

The "not married people" have been shooting daggers.

Keshi said...

SS good one! :)


Liberated Soul ty for bringing that out here.

** the worst the thing about marriage is you can never have the 'I dont care' attitude


Cos tho some of us who commented here before r single, we all mentioned that one. And Im glad we ASSUMED that one, cos it seems to be Right!


Keshi.

Solitaire said...

@ Ankur,

Are you saying that love is not required in a marriage?

I agree its an institution. I also told you the definition.

Solitaire said...

Who deleted what comment?

Ankur said...

@Sneha

baato par na jaoo... apni akal ladao!!!
:P

by no means i ever said, sayin or will say that love is not require in a marriage...
but its not a pre requisite!!! :)

Keshi said...

Ankur nah we r not blaming u mate. Just discussing.


**and exactly.. its not a fairytale!!

Yes ur right! Then why not tell us abt the Horrors of marriage? LOL!


Keshi.

Solitaire said...

@ Ankur,

So are you saying that love is not required prior to marriage but required after marriage?

Solitaire said...

@ Ankur,

Tell us what is NOT so fairy tale like about marriage...please!

Ankur said...

@Sneha

looks like my bad day!!

tata!! :)

vishesh said...

am not yet to know :)

Solitaire said...

@ Ankur,

Your wife will say...

"the worst thing about being married to ankur is that he abandons discussions and debates midway"

Solitaire said...

@ Vishesh,

Surely you mean you are yet to know?

Ankur said...

@Sneha

u r forcing me into it !! :P

i m bad at debates, coz then i go deep down into it!!

but for my wifey sake... i m continuing!!! :D

Ankur said...

@Sneha

**So are you saying that love is not required prior to marriage but required after marriage?


thats sheer assumption!!!
making an ass out of u is ok... but me.. no!! :D
leave me!! ;)

Ankur said...

@Keshi

*Yes ur right! Then why not tell us abt the Horrors of marriage? LOL!

but then wat i say was that it makes u vulnerable... with responsibilites!!!

Solitaire said...

@ Ankur,

HELLO? Assumption?
Read what you wrote...

"by no means i ever said, sayin or will say that love is not require in a marriage...
but its not a pre requisite!!! :)"

I merely paraphrased it.

Can you please explain what that means for I think you have no idea what it means either!!!

Ankur said...

@Sneha

**Tell us what is NOT so fairy tale like about marriage...please!


have u ever heard of someone dyin in a fairytale... it just ends with the happy forever thing!!!

but here... ppl die in reality!! :)

Ankur said...

@Sneha

**So are you saying that love is not required prior to marriage but required after marriage?


I said
"by no means i ever said, sayin or will say that love is not require in a marriage...
but its not a pre requisite!!! :)"

now how did u read that its not required prior to marriage... does pre requisite and not required sounds the same for you!!! :P

Hemanth Potluri said...

wow..Keshi i agree with u totally..

i am not still certified to ans the question :)...


urs..hemu..

Solitaire said...

@ Ankur,

People die regardless of their marital status. Has nothing to do with marriage.

And as for synonyms.

YES!

Prerequisite to marriage DOES mean prior to marriage.

GOSH! I cannot believe that I have to teach YOU the meaning of YOUR words.

Keshi said...

Sol u asked the same qn I asked Ankur! Tell us abt the horrors of marriage. :)



**"the worst thing about being married to ankur is that he abandons discussions and debates midway"

LOL! Sol always nails em all down pretty soon ha.



Ankur everything in life is abt TALKING em over. If we cant openly talk abt certain things in the first place w.o. thinking its taboo, even a Marriage can fail. so TALK TALK TALK :)


Keshi.

Ankur said...

ok now worse of marriage...

1 husband wife arguments on which shirt to wear!!

2 Y not Shaved??

3 y that pink saaree, y not aqua??

4 oh god, same breakfast again!!

Solitaire said...

@ Hemu,

You are not certified and yet you answered by agreeing with Keshi. :)

Solitaire said...

@ Ankur,

Finally the humor bug bit you.

Ankur said...

@Sneha

**Prerequisite to marriage DOES mean prior to marriage

correct urself Sol, it means pre condition!!!
not prior...

plzzzz... check ur vocab yaar!! lolzzzz

Ankur said...

@Sol

hahah
u bit me hard!! lolzz

Solitaire said...

@ Ankur,

People in glass houses should not throw stones.

A precondition means a condition before the event occurs.
In this case, marriage is the event and therefore my argument holds true.

Aคyushι said...

Listen,I'm not married,nor do I want to.:D
Why?

-Jhelo-fying his entire family,its like not marrying the guy you love,but his whole family.(it'd be a sigh of relief if we live seperately)

-You can't flirt around..you just have to get drowned in the person-you-married's eyes..look at him only,or be ready fr all his dirty look *sigh*

-I agree with Keshi on the thired point completely.And its like a "sone parr suhaga thing" if you get into an arrange marriage..and that person..he is an UH...!()*&*&*^@!

-You have to do everything with himm..get his permission even if you want to hang out with yr girlfriends n stuff,and if you're going out with yr age old "bfs"..then the conditions with him are no better than HELL.lol

-And lastly..BIRTH CONTROL,grosses me out :D

Solitaire said...

@ Ankur,

Main teri dushman, tu mera dushman.
Main nagin, tu sapera!

Ankur said...

yes... how true... so now u realize!! :P

so now read the whole...

A precondition means a condition before the event occurs.
In this case, marriage is the event and therefore my argument holds true.

not at all...

i said its not a prerequisite, which in simple english means its not necessary to fall in love before marriage!!

Simple...
and even we have glass houses, we change the dress with lights on!! :D

Ankur said...

@Sol

cant be true...
coz hum dost hai ;)

and tu nagin mai naag!! :P

Solitaire said...

@ Aayushi,

WHAT! You don't need to take your husband's "permission" to meet your friends. He does not own you! He is only married to you. Its like you choose your roommate for life! ;)

In laws part..yaaaaaaaaaaa! Agree with you totally!

Solitaire said...

@ Ankur,

So ultimately you said the same thing as what I said....

Oh gosh! You wasted so much time and energy in doing all this instead of simply saying..yes, you are right.

The worst thing about being married to Ankur is "he beats around the bush"...this is also what your wife will say.

Ankur said...

if my wifey says...

**The worst thing about being married to Ankur is "he beats around the bush"...this is also what your wife will say.

hehe.. then this means something else Sol.. Dirty u!! lolzzzz

Ankur said...

"Sneha

and u didnt say wat u mean.. oyee...

Solitaire said...

The worst thing about being married to a man is that he will interpret simple statements as dirty jokes!

Ankur said...

**The worst thing about being married to a man is that he will interpret simple statements as dirty jokes!

and the worst thing being married to a woman is that she will say statements which are dirty jokes without knowing them!!


lolzzzz

Ankur said...

morse worse things in marriage

She willl say u r Sapera, and i m naagin!! :P

she will say ki ghar sheeshe ka lete hai... :P

she will say ki tumhari vocab bahut poor hai!! :D

Solitaire said...

@ Ankur,

Oh don't forget..she will also call you names like Gainda...

Ankur said...

but woh toh i like na Sol.. :D

D said...

The worst thing about being married is that you're no longer single!

Keshi said...

Aayushi tnxx hun!

**if you're going out with yr age old "bfs"..then the conditions with him are no better than HELL.lol


lol r ya planning to out with ur ex-BFs even after ur marriage? I like ur style sweetie! :)


Keshi.

Solitaire said...

@ D,

What's the best thing about being single?

Ankur said...

par haan... one more bad thing maybe tat she is allergic for long time and still she doesnt care abt it!!!

Keshi said...

Well what can I say, Ankur totally ignores me when he's in convo with Sol.

Such r men :(



one more reason why it's GREAT to stay single!



Keshi.

Ankur said...

btw.. some more generic things which makes marriages worse..

She buys a Saaree worth moolah and still she wears a sasti jeans for PArty!! lolzz

She takes 1 hr to get ready for party and we reach after there is only billl to be paid!!

She keeps the bathroom occupied all the time and still she talks abt the toilet seat!!

lolzzz

Ankur said...

@Keshi

i was abt to ask... where r u!! :D :D

there are no bad things after marryin u.. i know u will listen to me everytime, make tea for me, breakfast, lunch, dinner...
u will wash clothes!! :P :P

Keshi said...

D thats a great one! :) cos now ur DOUBLE. lol!

Keshi.

Solitaire said...

@ Ankur,

Looks like you married the wrong woman.

My husband will never say that.
I never buy sarees and don't like to wear them.

I never take more than 15 minutes to get dressed whether it may be to go to the grocery store or to a wedding.

Have NEVER spent more than 20 minutes in the shower.

Ankur said...

@Sneha

look then how the marriage will work... coz it just have no bad things... no saarees, no takin too long for gettin ready... no long showers!! :D :D

it works Sol.. :D
r u ready now ;)

Ankur said...

@Keshi


but the worse part... u r too good to be married to me!! :D

Keshi said...

Dream on Ankur!

U didnt even notice my last comment to u and u think I'll be married to u and make tea for ya? Fat hopes. LOL!


Keshi.

Rajesh said...

The worst thing abt getting married is maybe there's one to have a check on u when do bird-watching and you'll miss the best things when u were single..

P.S : I request the author to post an answer to the same question

Ankur said...

@Keshi

i read ur last one...did i miss something!! :(

Solitaire said...

@ Rajesh,

Funny answer:

You will always have someone to cuddle with in the morning which in turn will make you snooze which will cause you to be late to work.

Seriously funny answer: In-laws (what many others have said already..)

Serious answer:

Always have to make all decisions while keeping the other in mind.

Solitaire said...

@ Ankur,

Is that your way of proposing?

Keshi said...

**but the worse part... u r too good to be married to me

nah Ankur dun be too sure!

And dun put me on a pedestal. Cos its prolly the other way ard...u may be too good for someone like me! I may be the woman u so wanna run away from. :)


Keshi.

Ankur said...

@Sneha

haha :D

Ankur said...

btw... ek aur bad cheez.. kaise bhi propose karo, shaadi ke baad suno, doosron ki thaali mai ghee jyada hi hota hai! :P

Ankur said...

and how come i didnt notice... u looking gorgeous in the latest pic!! :D

Soham Shah said...

You can't get out of the bed from both the ends if u wake up early !!

Ankur said...

chalo lagta hai so gayi ho...

Gud nite.. :)

Solitaire said...

@ Soham,

Good one!

Looks like the married ones can see the humor in the situation and take this lightly while those not married are busy weaving castles in the air!

Solitaire said...

@ Ankur,

Shaadi ke laddoo...khake pachhtao...na khake bhi pachhtao!

Thanks for the compliments!

Ankur said...

@Keshi


not at all keshi, cant run away from u... thanks for thinkin so high.. but i dont deserve dear...

and when i come to Australi, or if u come to India, will take u to a Date for sure!!

:D :D

Keshi said...

Abt in-laws...

I hear so many married ppl whining abt MILs...I mean is it really that bad? Wut's so deadly about a MIL?


It's best if a married person anwers that qn! tnxx.


Keshi.

@Sol & @Keshi

Sam said...

No idea.. but may be the fact, even if you want out.. you cannot simply walk out.. too many complications!!!

humbl devil said...

the worst thing about marriage...
well you have to experience for ur selves...but since this is for all the singl people here...

here goes...

the added responsibilities!!
you have to think ahead all the tym!!

rest all the things are manageable...
cooking is not a problem, since i m a gr8 cook myself...the only thing abt me tht i like to boast abt...hehe

p.s.
nys pic sol!!!looking gr8!!!

Anonymous said...

"Dear?"
"Mmm?"
"Should I wear this pink dress or this blue one?"
"Uhh... Ummm.. I think you should wear the pink one."
"But I look fat in that one!"
"Ooops. Then wear the blue one."
"But it accentuates the wrinkles on my face."
:|
:D

Rakesh said...

indian point of view:-
it increses population and pollution most of time...:D

Solitaire said...

@ Rakesh,

Pollution?????????????

Do you mean the noise pollution that the band baja creates when the groom comes happily trotting on a mare?

humbl devil said...

@ keshi :


-You have to always think about doing things TOGETHER (u sort of lose the freedom of doing whatever u want whenever u want)
why do everything together??wont that get boring!!we r humans after all...


-Being married to someone u dun love and vice versa (yes that can happen!)
worst!!!
why marry!!!


-Not being able to flirt to your heart's desire w.o. having to put up with Jealousy fits and dirty looks!
now, that's wot u need to prepare for!!!
you can flirt as long it doesnt lead to something else...


-Having to think about birth control shit (pull n pray lol!)
plan ahead and be prepared..hehehe
but then it ups the excitement..dont ya think??
:D


-If things turn out real bad, some nasty husbands/wives can play it REAL tough when wanting a Separation/Divorce. (similar thing is happening to one of my friends right now and he's in hell at the moment - cos she's not giving him the divorce!)
why even think about divorce!!!
it's like asking why ask sucha question in the first place, ryt sol???


-Having to use 'Not tonight hunny' line'! I mean who bloody cares about that line when ur single??
hehehe...

-Having to be extra careful with ur expenses just cos ur no longer single! (*urrrrrrrg!*)
everybody will agree on this one...


-Having to be on a constant vigil just to stroke the Male ego! (*to get things done ofcourse*)
i didnt get wot u meant here...so i will pass...:)


-The need to cook something different everyday just cos there's a man at the table. I mean when ur single u can even eat Vegemite toast in a row for one whole week!
why something diff everyday???
ur shd be, if he aint helping in the cooking hez gonna be sitting hungry!!!

-Having to deal with disgusting farts, burps, snoring, wet towels on the floor and toilet-seat issues!
teach them some manners will ya!!and why wud ya fall for someone like that in the first place!!!arent ya smarter:P


-Having to please someone all the time. I mean I'd just like to be myself 24/7 if possible! (*eat garlic bread and not worry abt him smelling it and going ewww!*)
u shd be urself!!!tht's my motto...
:D


-Having to vaccum around hairy legs resting on the carpet while watching Sports 24/7!
why not make him do the vacuuming??? :D


-HAVING AN EXTRA PERSON TO ARGUE WITH! I dun need that in my life cos there r enough ppl tearing my hair out right now. LOL!
lil arguments keep a marriage healthy!!!
come on, you have to be an individual and two ppl cant alwez see eye to eye on evrything...



-Having to deal with his massive perving and still try to love him cos 'cmon all men r like that', duh!
why deal with it, you have to learn to draw a line...if u let them be...thne it myt grow into smthing else...



some advice for ya..keshigirl...
learn from other's mistakes and prepare beforehand :D

Rakesh said...

yes right...:D

I Walk Alone!!! said...

Am not married yet... Hmmm would have loved to know all the good and rights about marriage before we discuss the worsts... but still the post demands something else :)

I think the worst is loss of individuality...

Although on the positive side, I think the individual just grows and gets better in a relationship :)

yaeecks veens is here said...

no freedom

no flirting

..... make do with mood swings...while handling yur own mood swings :D


thinking twice b4 bitchng abt the family :d

and the list goes on...

Satish Bolla said...

getting a nagging wife. mayb someone who doesn't like(in fact, hate) ice creams

rayshma said...

the fact that u can't just get up, pack ur bags and go off gallivanting bcoz u feel like it. be it travel or work... u at least need to inform the other half... and maybe *not mandatory, tho* have a reason for wanting to scoot off as well!

Friendly Stranger said...

Well, I think people have to cut on time with their friends when they get married....

rayshma said...

@keshi:
i love my MIL. so far, at least. it's like i have 2 mothers! which, at times, does get a little stifling. :0)
on the other hand, my mom's MIL was really really evil. so there!
i guess it's something individual. depends on whether she's cut the umbilical cord *or is willing to*. also depends on how ur hubby manages situations.

lukkydivz said...

for me it will be leaving my family of 22 years :(

Urv said...

Umm.. something like the fact that a married person might not be able to answer freely to a post/question like this :D

Nirmal said...

WORST thing bout marriage wud be .

hmmm

a lady in ur house..and tat too the same everyday..

hehehe..

many more troubles like..

**leave sports and listen to office gossips**

**shopping with them**(this is worst)..

**forget the date of ur first kiss and u will have answer this questions" u dont love me anymore??"..**

**full stop on FLIRTING**

inshort marriage and smoking has similarities..

men knows both r injurious for health..but still they do it..

Vrij said...

Wat abt my 'saree' post? Do u think that might qualify here?

But seriously, sometimes I might just wanna be an individual and not part of a pair. I might just wanna be left alone with no one to disturb me. I mean for a short time, an hour or so. But then cant really leave biwi and go someplace. Sometimes its possible, but sometimes it isnt!!

Vrij said...

Now trying to be a bit naughty.. how about not being able to watch porn freely?

Hiren said...

hmmm ... no experience ... so here is my assumption ...

worst thing for guys would be losing their freedom ... not in real sense but definitely certain things like coming late to home at nights whenever you want; just staying over at any friends place for night without even thinking twice; skipping dinner at home frequently etc etc ... (and somehow I have seen many of my friends have to compromise on playing cricket during weekends too :) ...)

as said earlier; this doesnt mean that the guy loses his entire freedom or something like that ...

Ashu said...

maariage itself s being junk...immoral n legal implications to stick with wrong person.......

darn marriage!!!!!!

rahul said...

no eyes warming, no all night booze party with friends, meeting with relatives and ppl one finds despicable more often, being very polite,diplomatic most of the times!!!!

Ankur said...

u r tagged sol!! :D

check it out!!!

Aneesh said...

it depends on your partner and you, I don't think there is any worst thing in marriage. Best? it's all best right?

Ashu said...

come pick over the 2nd choice on my 2nd blog :)

joiedevivre said...

well now a days its not at all necessary to get married..
one can go for LIV IN...
so people can hav all fun n njoyment..
and glimpses of responsibilities and sense of sharing..

i think people shud think twice b4 gettin married...its a burden wen u dnt commit urself truely n its another universe to liv wen u share n luv each other

Am In Trance said...

The Worst Things Are:
Ummm....
Well.....

**You Can't Have A Beer Every Evening...
**You Can't Attend Parties Every Now n' Then...
**You Can't Read A Book Peacefully...
**You've To Go To The Most Boring Places On Earth... i.e. Shoppin' Malls.. n' Spend Elongated Hours Of Torture...
(I Can Never Take More Than 2 Minutes To Buy A shirt..)

Apart From These... EveryThin' Is Makkhan....
:)
I Guess Your Next Post Should Be:
"What Are The Best Things About Gettin' Married...!!!
TakeCare Sweety...

Solitaire said...

@ Am in Trance,

Why can't you have a beer every evening? One beer a day is good for your kidneys! I will definitely encourage my husband to drink one and sit down with him and have my own too!

Why can't you attend parties now and then? I would love to party at least one day on the weekend!

Why can't you read a book peacefully? I will kill my husband if he does not let me read my books and will also not choose a husband who does not read books himself!

Hours in the shopping mall? You can do that in the electronics section and she in the clothes and all will be well! :)

Solitaire said...

@ Joie,

Thanks for your input but this is not about whether a live in is better or a marriage. If in case, you do get married, then what would be the worst part?

Solitaire said...

@ Aneesh,

Everything has a best and a worst..it all cannot be rosy unless you are in a hindi movie or a fairy tale.

Solitaire said...

@ Rahul,

True, true, true, and true!

Solitaire said...

@ Ashu,

What if it's the right person? Why are you assuming that everyone gets married to the wrong person and gets stuck?

vishvsambyal said...

lol..let me get married..


ooh ooh ooh..will u marry me?

Am In Trance said...

Ahem..
Thats Cool..!!!
Infact, Thats Hyper Cool...!!!!
**Am All Dreamy Now**
;)

ceedy said...

Really interesting discussion...read thru all the comments and really liked Soham's

*You can't get out of the bed from both the ends if u wake up early !!*
and to add to it....then you can blame the side you are sleeping for all your bad moods....

and the worst thing I feel is understanding that you are or have to be now half of the ONE you were and not TWO....very rarely can you sustain the ONE and be in a marriage...but its possible.

APOO said...

The worst thing about marriage is finding the right one.... and having to say, "sorry, I am married!"

Keshi said...

Devil tnxx :)

Mate, gosh ur over-positive abt marriage LOL!

cmon now, the qn was

'whats the WORST thing abt being married?'


not


'how do you mend a broken marriage?'

:)



Usually I stick to the qn ;-)

Keshi.

Solitaire said...

@ Hiren,

Yaha par bhi cricket? UFFFO!

Solitaire said...

@ I walk alone,

I think you are as confused as comfortably numb is.

Solitaire said...

@ Vrij,

You sound like a typical man from "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus". I read in that book that men like to go in a cave once in a while and they should not be disturbed when in that cave. Looks like you are talking about that!

Yes, saree post can count. In fact, would love it to count since everyone is getting really serious over here. Its nice to get married people's inputs.

And why do you still want to watch porn? UFFO! Boys will be boys!

Solitaire said...

@ Nirmal,

Why don't you go ahead and marry a gentleman then?

Hey bhagwaan....kya kya notions hai.

Solitaire said...

@ Urv,

The best part is that all the married people seem to be having fun while the unmarried people are arguing! Funny!

Solitaire said...

@ Sam,

OH! So you mean you are kinda bound. :(

Solitaire said...

@ Lukky,

What a great point!!!! Never thought about it that way! I think this thought does not even occur to men. They are busy talking about how its going to be hard to watch porn!

***rolling eyes***

Solitaire said...

@ Humble,

Thanks!!

I know how much you like to boast about cooking after reading your recent post. That makes you an eligible bachelor. You know that right?

Solitaire said...

@ Anonymous,

How about,

Man: Dear..
Woman: Mmm?
Man: Can you cook tonight?
Woman: Sure.
Man: I invited 20 people over from work.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Solitaire said...

@ Veens,

Are you ready?

Solitaire said...

@ Satish,

Hahahahahaha!! Yaha par bhi icecream!

Solitaire said...

@ Rayshma,

But that happens when we live with our parents too right?

Solitaire said...

@ Friendly,

I think when men get married they have to make sure that their wives get along..otherwise they might be doomed!

Solitaire said...

@ Apoo,

That would suck!!!!!

Solitaire said...

@ Ceedy,

Were you talking mathematics or marriage?

Solitaire said...

@ Am In Trance,

Haha! Sweet dreams!

Solitaire said...

@ Samby,

Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...
Sab ke saamne?

Relaising that the marriage is on the rocks....ofcourse this wont be worst case for all marriages but this could be for some...

Ankur said...

@Sneha

Ankur said...

Keshi said...

Sol come n read a real MARRIAGE story in my blog.


Keshi.

Nirmal said...

marry a gentleman....

i wud love to see a beautiful gal in my bed and not a handsome hunk..

hehehe..

Solitaire said...

@ Nirmal,


Oh I see. You don't mind seeing a beautiful girl in your bed but do mind seeing the same woman in your house everyday.

Very convenient.

Solitaire said...

@ Ankur,

Abhi se practice?

Solitaire said...

@ Ankur,

No girl who is calorie conscious will ask for a chocolate shake early in the morning!

Keshi said...

Nirmal I thought ur ans to this qn wud be:

--The need to buy Diamonds.




Keshi.

Solitaire said...

@ CG,

LOL! I had a friend who married an orphan. As mean as it sounds, all her friends were jealous of her.

Solitaire said...

@ Princess,

Aww..that is truly a worst feeling!

Nirmal said...
