You know you're secretly thinking of marriage when...

 Dedicated to my better half, and anyone else of marriageable age :-)
[Female point of view here].
- you surf the net looking for wedding pictures, any one's wedding pictures.
- you scan married people thoroughly looking for signs of happiness.
- you're bf/fiancee looks cuter everyday.
- you scour the www for wedding photographers.
- you secretly save up unusual wedding card designs.
- you find out the price of jewellery when out shopping for dishes.
- you know exactly what your ring should look like [and so does he :-) ].
- you know what kinds of dresses you will be wearing for your various functions.
[even if you don't know the colors yet]

- you chat with his Mom about what you'd like,what scares you or expectations.
- you can almost hear the sound of the music that will play as you prance down the red carpet.
- you can visualise the coffee table book of your pictures.
- you have mentally designed your home.
- you think of his family as your very own.
- the honeymoon stage of your relationship is over, you've been together for more than half a decade and you're still crazy about each other!
- Seeing other married people makes your stomach feel funny.
- wedding scenes or videos make you tear up.
- you and he make long term plans.
- you're looking forward to all the saris etc in your trousseau.
- you wonder about heels Vs flats with your outfits. You don't need heels as you're tall as it is, but they're glamorous. But there is the added risk of falling and being embarrassed...but somehow flats don't quite do it...
- you kind of know what flowers you want all over the place and they are so not roses.
- you know who you don't want there!!
- you wonder how long your honeymoon should last...and where your going.
- you so do not want a bun on your head.
- nor do you want the clown make up.
- in fact, to avoid looks related disasters , you've shortlisted looks and gone over them with him!
- you wonder if you'll hold hands while circling the fire... :-)

Let it be known this list could go on ad infinitum. But really its only an indicator of how ready you are to have a wedding, not a marriage... :-)

7 lost souls found themselves in my mirror....:

oh my god!!! you have SO got it!
i find myself sharing several of these symptoms, in my half-wedded limbo(u know what i mean )... while i am really vague about what i want, i know for certain what it is i DONT want.... clown-paint, bun on head, people who have been even slightly mean to me, that silli tikli thing,maroon and gold banarasi, verbiose wedding cards with a gaudy ganesh on the cover, and heavy jewellary...

and 'female point of view' is totally superfluous here... males don't secretly fantasise about shadi... at least my male doesn't. i suspect they treat it much as a dog treats a neutering operation... something that cant be helped and needs to be gotten out of the way.
