Jab We Met: 'Our horoscopes didn't match'

Last updated on: January 29, 2016 19:51 IST

We'd asked you, dear readers to share your love stories with us.

Here Ashish Gupta shares his story. You can share yours too!

Ashish Gupta

She lived in the same area as my maternal grandparents but I had never seen her before.

As I grew up, marriage proposals started coming my way.

My grandmother (Naani) told my mother that she had selected a girl for me.

I did not pay much heed to the proposal but my grandmother was adamant on getting this match done.

Our horoscopes didn't match but it was decided that I should meet the girl and then decide.

We met at a local temple.

The first time I saw her I was blown away by her cuteness.

We had a brief chat about ourselves and in the next 15 minutes I had decided that I would marry this girl regardless of the fact that our horoscopes were against us.

We got married on the February 21, 2011 and have been blessed with a boy in mid 2012.

The girl whose horoscope was not suitable for my life has become my life.
