All the questions you should ask the guy that you're having a 'Rishta' meeting with
01/12Meeting a guy for your 'Rishta'? Ask him these questions
We can all wave our flags and claim we're independent and can manage on our own but if there's one thing that we Indians will never get rid of it is an arranged marriage concept. And to be honest, it's not really a bad thing. The only difference is that in this concept of 'dating', your parents are also involved. But then obviously when you're meeting someone for the first time, things are going to be a little awkward. However, you must also remember that you might potentially end up spending the rest of your life with this person which is why you must ask him all the right questions. Just make sure to have an honest heart to heart and you'll see what can work best for you.readmore
