A wedding is an affair of massive cultural importance in most communities. While the execution and ceremonies vary, the emotion attached to a marriage is considered sacred and the bond, unbreakable. Yet, data suggests that a fair percentage of marriages are called off post engagement, globally.
Breaking up a relationship is not easy. When it comes to a wedding, it’s quite a quandary. So what does one do when faced with one of the biggest dilemmas of their adult life? How does one say no to the man or woman they are engaged to?

These are signs of existing in a toxic relationship. It needs effective communication and sometimes therapy to move out.
If everything you do to make it work seems hopeless, it’s time to say no. Irrespective of it being an arranged or love marriage, do not let the big word of ‘engagement’ push you back. If you want out, you owe it to both your selves. Yet, a methodical and sensitive approach needs a mention.
There are counsellors and coaches who can help you be equipped, for a similar situation.

A ‘thank you’ makes a lot of difference in the way any woman in your life sees herself in your eyes. It might even mean the world to her.
I have not received any appreciation in the past. Probably never will. This is the experience of ample women across the globe. The expectation to be thanked for all the sacrifices she makes to keep others happy has faded. Yet the urge to hear few words of acknowledgement always lingers.
There is never a day when she pushes off her own burdens. She knows not to give up on people she loves. Women in general, are givers by nature and hence, give without asking anything in return. They have been the care givers and lovers since centuries however receive no appreciation.
