Part one in an ongoing series, I’m sure.
Our conversation the other day went something like this:
Parents: You know, all of your cousins are starting to get married…
Parents: And you’re not married.
Parents: And you haven’t shown interest in the indian girls we know…
Parents: We have a relative in India who said he’ll start looking for a potential wife for you…
Me: Tell him to stop.
Parents: We’ll just tell him to send you all the girls’ biodata.
Parents: Just tell us what you’re looking for in a wife.
Me: Ok… Tell him she has to be an atheist.
The parents have not brought up the topic since.
Round one goes to me.
For the record, I could care less about a girl’s atheism so long as we have shared values. But this was a quicker way to end the discussion…
