  1. They will find out after the honeymoon is over. Not the marriage, but when the initial infatuation of meeting wears off. 😂

    1. Lol that’s when everything goes downhill huh?😜

      1. Well… It can. Sorry, I don’t mean to be negative, Pooja. 😊

        1. Lol that’s okay- as you may have noticed from most of my six word stories I’m not extremely optimistic about love/marriage myself.

          1. I believe that some of us are meant to be single. That sounds sad but it’s not for me…

            1. I don’t think being single is necessarily sad- a lot of people enjoy their own company. I also don’t think relationships are for everyone and sometimes being single is just better.

              1. I do like my own company! Single has saved me lots of money and sanity. I always end up feeling trapped at some point in any relationship.

                1. I know the feeling. I’ve always been a very independent person and I enjoy spending time on my own so if I’m in a relationship I feel suffocated after a while if we spend too much time together.

                  1. Boom, thank you, Pooja! ❤️
