The woman in your life - very well expressed...

This is a beautiful article: The woman in your life - very well expressed..

Tomorrow you may get a working woman, but you should marry her with these facts as well.

Here is a girl, who is as much educated as you are;
Who is earning almost as much as you do;

One, who has dreams and aspirations just as you have because she is as human as you are;

One, who has never entered the kitchen in her life just like you or your sister haven't, as she was busy in studies and competing in a system that gives no special concession to girls for their culinary achievements.

One, who has lived and loved her parents & brothers & sisters, almost as much as you do for 20-25 years of her life;

One, who has bravely agreed to leave behind all that, her home, people who love her, to adopt your home, your family, your ways and even your family name.

One, who is somehow expected to be a master-chef from day one, while you sleep oblivious to her predicament in her new circumstances, environment and that kitchen,

One, who is expected to make the tea, first thing in the morning and cook food at the end of the day, even if she is as tired as you are, maybe more, and yet never ever expected to complain; to be a servant, a cook, a mother, a wife, even if she doesn't want to; and is learning just like you are as to what you want from her; and is clumsy and sloppy at times and knows that you won't like it if she is too demanding, or if she learns faster than you.

One, who has her own set of friends, and that includes boys and even men at her workplace too, those, who she knows from school days and yet is willing to put all that on the back-burners to avoid your irrational jealousy, unnecessary competition and your inherent insecurities; Yes, she can drink and dance just as well as you can, but won't, simply because you won't like it, even though you say otherwise

One, who can be late from work once in a while when deadlines, just like yours, are to be met;

One, who is doing her level best and wants to make this most important, relationship in her entire life a grand success, if you just help her some and trust her;

One, who just wants one thing from you, as you are the only one she knows in your entire house - your unstinted support, your sensitivities and most importantly - your understanding, or love, if you may call it.

But not many guys understand this..

Appreciate "HER"...
I hope you will...

very well written :) i agree to all the points which are mentioned in the post. people doesn't understand this.. even parents at times think our daughter should posses all the good qualities of a 'bahu'with excellent career. nobody tries to understand what's going on in a girls mind and when she tries to ask these questions to guys, they think she is demanding but on the other hand she is really trying to make things clear and simple to understand.thanks for posting this one !! but who has written it??

It looks like you are encouraging to marry wanna-be homemakers and not working woman ;-) On a serious note, a working woman has to manage too many things for sure and the better she manages priorities, the happier the home would be :-)

I absolutely love this :) it is so true and I must thank you for putting this up here. Alot of people fail to remember this. Men sometimes don't appreciate the women who stick by their sides and sometimes women forget just how worthy they are. Kudos to you :)
