To One Who Wants to Get Married
How nice of you to confide in me! Do I really deserve to be your confidante? Anyway, you have asked me to advise you. I can only suggest things to you as a friend.
You say you and Ravi love each other deeply and that the friendship is just a month old. I think you should court each other for a six-month period before you decide you are made for each other. This duration would bring out your relative merits and demerits, the stability of your love, and Ravi’s capacity to tolerate your shortcomings. Notice his tendencies and hesitations.
Remember! Love is blind and lovers cannot see the follies they commit. So wisdom is required to decide on such a crucial matter. No use regretting later on.
Do keep me informed of your progress. I assure you, I would be happy to learn you two have passed in each other’s estimate.
With love and blessings,
