The popular TV serial Jodi Hakki is the best example of how marriages should be in our country. In India, marriage is a sacred step an individual takes to move on from a single life into a life of responsibility and care. Their likes and dislikes become yours to bear. Happiness comes from sharing things with each other and more importantly, you have someone to call your own.
You can watch the bond between Rama and Janaki in this episode:
Rama and Janaki, the lead characters on the show prove why they are the best married couple in K-town. Here are five lessons they abide by and so should you if you want a relationship like them.
1. Mutual Respect
When two individuals get married, mutual respect is an absolute must. Without respect, there is more scope of immaturity to enter a marriage. Of course, once in while being child-like is adorable but immaturity can easily become a habit, so watch out.
2. Respect for others
Marriage is just not the union of two individuals, it also the extension of two families coming together as one. You grow with your family each day by experiencing new things. So give them respect as it will maintain an emotional balance amongst everyone. Don’t end up mistreating them just because you oppose their ideas.
3. Always doing the best for each other
In life, it is sometimes okay to find flaws in your partner but make sure not to dwell on the negative aspects. Concentrate on their positives, do things that will bring a smile to their face. A good example is when Rama learns that Janaki wants to study further and immediately promises to stand by her in every decision.
4. Partners in every aspect of life
It is important to share emotions and responsibilities equally because that brings a sense of balance to a marriage. If there is a low you both are experiencing, try to be there for each other. Don’t use criticism to put your point across. Similarly, if it is a joyous occasion, party with your partner like no one else exists in this world.
5. Communication Barrier
This is the mother of all evils when it comes to ruining a marriage. Be it an arranged marriage like Janaki and Rama or a love marriage, make sure that your relationship doesn’t get hampered because of something as silly as a communication barrier. I mean common if you don’t talk to your spouse and sort it out, I hope you aren’t expecting your neighbour to come and do it?
While we sincerely hope that you are having the best time of your married life, we would like to know if you too are like Rama and Janaki? You could also tell us what you like about them in the comments section below with #JodiHakki
