By Krishna’s grace, I and Radha Ramana got married last May 10, 2008. It was a small and simple civil wedding attended by our good friends, and we did it in front of Srila Prabhupada instead in the courthouse. I don’t know much what to say, so I’ll just post some pictures, and also, I found some nice and funny quotations about marriage, and I couldn’t disagree with most of it.
Mohandas K. Gandhi: “I first learned the concepts of non-violence in my marriage.”
Socrates: “My advice to you is to get married. If you find a good wife, you’ll be happy; if not, you’ll become a philosopher.”
Louis K. Anspacher: “Marriage is that relation between man and woman in which the independence is equal, the dependence mutual, and the obligation reciprocal.”
Ambrose Bierce: “Love: a temporary insanity, curable by marriage.”
Bill Cosby: “For two people in a marriage to live together day after day is unquestionably the one miracle the Vatican has overlooked.”
John Berger : “All weddings are similar, but every marriage is different.”
Lyndon B. Johnson: “Only two things are necessary to keep one’s wife happy. One is to let her think she is having her own way, the the other, to let her have it.”
Oscar Wilde: “Marriage is the triumph of imagination over intelligence.”
Joyce Brothers :”Marriage is not just spiritual communion, it is also remembering to take out the trash.”
According to my experienced :”Marriage is like two false egos living in one roof!”

Our simple wedding cake made by yours truly )
Another cake picture with the garlands I made with the smallest needle we had in the house at that time. I made the garlands early in the morning before I started cooking, so I didn’t have the time to run an errand for the needle. About my husband’s where abouts, he was also busy cleaning the entire house,which I really appreciate since it’s not really my cup of tea,hehehe!
