Anurag recently asked me - mama, I don't want to get married ever, is that ok?
I responded - of course, thats your choice. (Kabir helps by naming adults that he knows are single)
Anurag: Oh but I will still want to have a wife.
Me (trying to understand): Then why do you say you won't want to marry?
Anurag: I just want to live with my wife without having to marry her. I don't like this stuff about becoming a groom etc.
Me: ok, so you just don't want a wedding, that's good. (I wish I had this wisdom when I was younger!)
As an afterthought, I decided to push this: why do you think you'll want to have a wife though?
Anu: I want to live with her like you and papa. But we won't have children. We will get a dog instead.
