For the benefit of all the girls who plan to get married in Mumbai

Some pointers you must keep in mind if you plan to settle down in Mumbai and start a famil….
1) Ensure the guy you pick has his parents in the same city
2) If point 1 is satisifed, ensure that you share a great relationship with your MIL
3) Catch a guy whose mom works, she understands your problems better
4) Better still, catch a guy whose mom works and who has been in Mumbai for a long time AND who has a maid for a long time….you can always casually mention to the guy on how you think his mom is great managing everything alone (you obviously will be scoring brownie points on that!) and then it may come out of his mouth that she has help in form of a maid who has been around…if he doesnt get the hint sutlely…just ask..its important!!!
5) Ensure that if you plan to go to a new house….you are nearby enough to your in laws to share the maid as well as your mil can take care of the baby…
6) Of course, plan your baby the same year your MIL is retiring..that ways you get the benefit of someone taking care of the baby as well as your MIL gets the benefit of not getting bored 😉 and there is always the maid to help out your mil na!!
Trust me..while love and all is blind..when the realities of being a working mom hit you..you will realise that the above are the most important criteria for the most important decision of your life….!!!
PS: no offence meant to anyone…out of the above 6 critera….none of them hold true for me….but fortunately I am blessed with a MIL who doesnt mind travelling 3000 Kms just to help me out whenever I really need her 🙂

    No his parents are nowhere near Mumbai. But his parents plan to move with us once we have kids. They are nuts about their grandchildren (hubby's sister's kids) who arrive only once a year and hence they don't get enough of them, now they are like super ready to support us with the kids anytime we ask them to 🙂
