The romantic in me loves a good love story! I was recently invited by @storyofstyle
to share our love story in #lovevsarrangedmarriage
❤️ As I was checking out the other participants it became obvious that we had an unconventional wedding story! 1️⃣ LOVE or ARRANGED
We had an arranged marriage 24 years ago!
2️⃣ How did you guys meet? I was a second year med student when my parents met with my husband and his family through friends. They fell in love with him before I did! Although I was born and raised in the US, I have always embraced the traditions and customs of my culture, such as having an arranged marriage. Even though I met my husband’s family prior to our engagement, I met my husband for the very first time on the day of our engagement and fell in love. Our wedding was a few months later.
3️⃣How many years of marriage? 24❤️💃🏻💃🏻. Together we finished our medical training, had the kids and established private practices for each of us.
4️⃣What is the secret of a happy and long lasting marriage? I have been thinking of this question for several days. The reality is there is no secret. It takes hard work, patience and acceptance. For the both of us, it has meant commitment. I would never change my love story. #lovevsarrangedmarriage
