Brides-to-be get busy pampering your tresses, if you want your mane to be your crowning glory on your special day.

Paranoid DelusionIt’s just another day for Nidhi. She reaches office at 9:30 am sharp and waits. At a quarter to 10, her heart starts pounding. At 10 to 10, she starts getting nervous. At 10, out comes the mirror from her bag; Nidhi adjusts her hair and waits for Vinay to walk in. Vinay is her boss, a highly successful CEO. The CEO smiles and Nidhi’s heart skips a beat. And her belief grows stronger. ”He loves me so much, he doesn’t even look at anyone else in office,” is what she says to herself. Nidhi confides in a friend: ”Vinay is madly in love with me. It’s because of his wife that we aren’t together.” Sorry for the interruption, but what Nidhi imagines is far from true. When Vinay gets to hear of the rumour in office, he’s hopping mad.

”I never thought my casual good-mornings and goodbyes would lead Nidhi to think this way. Actually, our families know each other so, maybe, I’m a little more warm towards her, but never have I given her the impression that I love her!” Vinay is not at fault. And, probably, neither is Nidhi - she suffers from the De Clerambault’s Syndrome, a condition in which a woman entertains the delusion that a certain man is in love with her. Usually, it is a man of a higher social status whom she is acquainted with. Psychiatrist Sanjay Chugh, recalls a case involving an aspiring actress who was offered words of acknowledgement by an established writer. Unfortunately, the actress’ overactive mind came to the conclusion that love was in the air.

Pre-marital counselingLet the old saying affect your wedding. Marriage is a commitment, a life-long commitment. Looking beyond the sparkle and romance of a wedding, it is important that we get into the nitty-gritty of what makes a marriage last. Rosemary John finds out the importance of undertaking pre-marital counseling, which helps to prepare couples for the sanctity of marriage, and a long and happy wedded life thereafter.

The institution of marriage has weakened substantially over the past years. People are marrying later; fewer are getting married; and many of those who do, often land up in divorce court. Have we ever wondered and given a serious thought as to why this is happening? As a life-long commitment and a sacred institution, marriage too requires a serious preparation. “In our country,” rues Dr. Madhavi Desai, a marriage counselor with the family court, “this system of pre-marital counseling is yet to be introduced and understood. Apart from churches and religious institutions, we find such sessions conducted only in private NGOs,” she adds.

Wedding EtiquetteWeddings are once in a lifetime affairs and the utmost care has to be taken when it comes to the sending of the invites, seating, appropriate dress, gifts, amongst other things. The hosts and the guests ought to mind their manners, as a single ‘faux pas’ could ruin the wedding and leave behind bitter feelings, or in the least raise several critical eyebrows. Abigail Rodricks lists certain etiquette guidelines that should be kept in mind while planning, or attending a wedding.

The number of people to be invited from each side

One of the biggest problems faced by the couple and their families is the all-important guest list. This potentially dangerous list could very well become the basis of the first argument. So it is imperative that the issue be dealt with correctly.

The bride-to-be and the groom-to-be should get together and decide between themselves - or if required with the help of their parents - how many people they can accommodate at the wedding reception, and more importantly, how many they can afford to accommodate.
