The story details

After marriage, I understood, Men are from Mars (not bars) Women are from Venus (not fungus).
We are from two different worlds. So, even our thinking has to be worlds apart sometimes. And also, there are differences in how we feel, how we express, how we do things, et cetera, et cetera.. 

Observing these differences, let me quote an incident from our life. 

My BH picks me up every day from my office, and this part, I have chipped off from every working day conversations.

If it is BH who opens the conversation, then it will be
BH: How was work today?

Me: Normal. But, I wonder why people up the ladder cannot plan well. I will   have a lot of work on some days and I won’t have much on other days. Productivity of a person will come down if such a scenario continues for long. Doesn’t it?
By the way, I had got a call from a person called ‘X’ from ‘Y’ company at 3.30 PM today; he said he has some good policies which ensure high returns at the end of 3 years. I told him we had enough.  (Did you notice that I changed the topic without waiting for his reply.. :P ). I had called Mrs. ABC; I told you that she was not keeping well. It seems now she is recovering. (I had not finished)

BH: Oh God! I thought the answer to was just good or bad. Why do you want to exert yourself so much? You are wasting so much of energy! (Rolling over his eyes)

Me: I just thought, I should be sharing things with you. :( I did not know that they weren’t important to you. :( :(

BH: Aggrhhh!! (Scratching his head)

Observation: Men like to keep things short and to the point. They just take what is applicable and chuck the rest and they get going. (Probably they have memory problems or probably they use that memory to remember test match scores/records :-D)

If it is yours truly who starts a conversation..
Me: How was work today?

BH: Not good not bad.

Me: Why? What happened?

BH: (Alarmed by the next series of possible questions that would bombard) Nothing, It was normal.

Me: Why did you tell that it was not good then?

BH: (closing his eyes, gathering patience) had many calls to attend. Busy day.

Me: So, what is the happening thing at office?

BH: Nothing.

Me: Tell me something, all your answers are short; you don’t want to share anything with me.

BH: There is nothing worth sharing.

Me: Then you are filtering out things from me. Why do you want to do that?

BH: Shall we talk about something else for heaven’s sake?

Me: :( :(

Observation: Women want to know teeny-weeny things particulars about everything. All possible angles of the topic, other peoples’ reactions/opinion over the topic, any thing that is related to all topics; ensuring that they are down to the last detail. (They have ample storage capacity in their memory and everywhere else. That is why they carry babies for the mankind! :-D) 

Anyway, We celebrate the differences between us. We differ yet we prefer each-other. Life would have been so boring if we were from same worlds. Now it is spiced-up!! (HOTTTTTTT!!!)

PS: I know, BH's small brain should have A BIGGGG of space for patience. Ain't it? :P

Let me know your opinion...


  1. so very true :):):) i have also been into same conversations and ended in the same fights. I guess thats the way they are slowly trying to accept the fact:):)

  2. Suchi.. That is the beauty of the relationship. We differ, yet we prefer each other. :)

  3. tooootallly agreeed...and I loved it too!

    That's the beauty in leading a happy married life....both of them knew they are different and enjoy that difference!

  4. """We've ample storage capacity..everywhere. That's y v carry babies"" - LOL this one's totally original

    "We differ, yet we prefer each other". how sweet! n true!

    the conversation bit: YAAA! y d hell cant dey tell us all d juicy details??? y y y !!!

  5. hahaha. Aptly put. I have similar conversations when I go in depth explaining and my husband has nothing much to share :). Have you also noticed that their attention just veers off.. Good post, had a nice laugh!

    We love spiced up life. Dont we? Ahh! How I love being a woman.. **PRIDE**

  9. @Rachna Yes, Yes, they do have selective hearing problems as well. They just switch off their brain or their brain goes out of network towards the topic of discussion.. :D
    I really wonder at their talent!

  10. @Anoop Facts of life.. You have to agree :D

  11. Sahana, very well written. When I read on, it seems that you have written about my life. Every married couple go through this; but still, they love each other. Life is interesting, isn't it?

    Between, it's today I observed the new theme of your Blog. It looks great :o)

  12. It must be hormones while we are babies in the wombs that influence us, so that most men and women do recognise themselves in the dialogues you have presented :)

  13. lol...that's so true...we can relate to that so well

  38. i Like to take the side of the men here they dont want to share the burdens and avoid details to create balance with women in this cycle. :)
