Marriage is a constant subjugation of self, but there’s nothing wrong about it. Being prepared to do things, even if grudgingly, for your spouse is what keeps the institution of marriage oiled and running. My wife and I are dissimilar in things we consider our similarities. For instance, both of us are spendthrifts. But, we can’t agree on what to splurge on. She spends lavishly on cosmetics; I can’t resist automobiles.

As he does not approve of my shopping habits, our vacations are a great source of conflict.

The shopping bug bites her hard when we are travelling abroad. As spending in Euros or dollars is a new ball game, I often say ‘no’. When a flat refusal does not work, I resort to a little deception. And, that brings us to how I prevented her from turning our Europe trip into a disaster. During the London leg, my wife took a liking to an expensive Esprit watch. Fortunately for me, my brother-in-law bought the same model for his wife. For the next two days in London, I pretended I had purchased the watch for Suguna. After leaving London, I revealed the truth.

Suguna

Expensive? Huh! In Morocco, he gambled as if there was no tomorrow. He’ll throw money on the roulette, and should I pretend he is saving for the rainy day?

He who travels alone, travels best. I came to this conclusion after a frustrating visit to the famous ‘Tulip Garden’ in the Netherlands. Suguna went missing, and I had to give up the long-held dream of wading through acres of tulips. After three hours, I find her glowing from the experience of walking in this beautiful garden.

Suguna

We were getting on each others’ nerves. At Madame Tussad’s, he hugged wax images of Pamela Anderson and Angelina Jolie for the camera, and succeeded in irritating me.
