If you have ever visited Asian countries, you must have got some ideas about how the cultures and traditions alter people’s life or if you hail from one then there is no doubt they must have made your life hell at some point. It is in fact very rich in cultures and traditions but the stereotypical norms and values are what to definitely worry about.
I am in my mid-twenties and this age means I am on the verge of aging for my parents and relatives. Our grandparents used to get married when they were kids and girls in our parent’s generation in their early teens. So, it’s the root that never ceases to stop growing the same mindset after all these years.
Despite them trying for several years for convincing, I have somehow managed to remain single till now. Phewwww! What hard work it is. It’s not like that they are uneducated and unaware of the modern era. But anyhow they want me to settle down with a guy, do household chores, look after him his parents, and kids of our own. So what If I have got a degree? My qualifications are measured by getting married from how rich is the guy, how big is his home e.t.c
They even tried to blackmail that their parents are getting older. This often leads to heated arguments. It’s about someone’s life. Marrying is not something you do just because someone in your family is going to die one day not seeing grandchildren which is a very bitter truth for them to accept.
There is still uncertainty when the concept of people is going to change grow. This seems to last as long as people live for society until they start living for themselves. We should preserve cultures but ain’t it time to let go of stereotypes? Especially in case of marriage.
