Money and MarriageTwo people, crazily in love eagerly waiting to share their lives talk about everything from the wedding dress to the wedding bed but, what most people leave out of their discussion is what often becomes a bone of contention between the couple - money.

Research shows that in at least forty percent of the divorces that take place money is the root cause of the discord. Another fact that research brings to light is that almost ninety percent of the alter bound couples shy away from talking about money.

According to debt expert Howard Dvorkin, “Fifty percent of all marriages end in dissolution, and the number one reason for that is financial pressure.” If you are about to get married you must realize that besides being a union of two hearts and two souls marriage is also a union of two financial lives. So, it is very important that this aspect of the union be discussed before the knot is finally tied.

Shopping Styles and SpousesHe walks into a shop, finds what he wants in five minutes flat, and wants to leave. She walks into the same shop, browses the home accessories section, looks at the perfumes and jewellery, asks for his advice about some cushions for the children’s room, then spends an hour trying out night wear in the ladies changing room.

By the time they walk to the car park, ready to go home, an argument just happens.

“Very early on, my husband and I realized that it was best that we shop separately,” says Mamta, who has been married eight years and is a self-confessed ‘retail-therapist’. “We ended up getting into fights every time we went shopping together. So I started going to the shops with my friends, my mother, sister, cousins, colleagues. And he would shop for whatever he wanted whenever he got the time. Only around Diwali do we go shopping as a family. Even then, both of us have to try very hard not to irritate each other, or get into a fight. The years have taught us self-control.”

The pleasures and pitfalls of role reversalOkay, if you are a die-hard traditionalist and you lack the guts needed to break moulds, just don’t read on. Or go pick up ‘Gone with the Wind’ where men stalk the earth like giants and women keep house, tend wounds, attend deliveries and well, you know what I mean!!

When Reena fell in love with a gentle, unambitious musician, little did she realise how her life, her value systems and her finances were all in for a major shake-up. With a typical Type A father- achiever, leader, decision maker, etc, she had taken that side of men for granted. But here was Chotu, not comfortable with being assertive, and really not earning enough to take them places. Initially she thought ‘yikes, I’d better get out of this one’, but she realised how special the man had become to her. Did money and success really matter so much? She would ponder this, while watching him pat a street dog, fix her a delicious meal or spoil her when she was sick?.there was so much to him, what did the traditional labels matter?

Stop SmokingI am not on the Surgeon General’s team. Nor part of the anti-smoking lobby. In fact I was a smoker for years, and enjoyed every puff until my lungs started dropping broad hints that it was time to quit, so I graciously gave in (I figured I need my lungs more than my lungs need me, if you know what I mean!)

No, it is not that. It is the whole image thing, the lifestyle thing, and the one thing we tend not to talk about its impact on one’s personality, image, sex appeal. Of course years ago no hero worth his salt was seen without a cigarette dangling from his lips (what on earth would have happened to Clint Eastwood I wonder), and it was not politically incorrect to have smoke-filled scenes. And really, a man DID look more macho. But how come no one talks about the follow-through? Maybe it is not such a nice topic. But here it is.

Indian WeddingThere is absolutely no doubt about the fact every would be bride and bride groom want their wedding to be a memorable occasion not just for them but also for their guests. So, what is that magic mantra that will make this possible? Some say it is pots and oodles of money. But I say that is smart planning and clever use of available resources including money. With a dash of creativity thrown in.

With the concept of the big fat Indian wedding gaining popularity worldwide and newer areas of specialization, in the fashion and jewellery industry which have an obvious focus on the marriage market, planning and prioritizing have gained a great deal of significance in preventing dream weddings from getting translated into waking nightmares.
