Our honeymoon was the memorable vacation for us, we got to understand each other in these 4 days. When we returned it was totally sad atmosphere at home. PK & I realized that MIL is not talking with me & just answering in “YES” or “NO” to PK. We did not said anything till evening because we thought maybe she did not liked us going for honeymoon. PK was constantly trying to talk with MIL & get the idea of what has happened. PK opened his laptop & showed them our honeymoon pics but MIL rudely said what is the use of showing pics to her, they are all good. No lunch, no breakfast, no food till evening for anyone!!!
Later FIL told us that FIL’s Mom – my grand MIL was not happy with the way PK’s Mom’s brothers behaved with my family during wedding & it was just a small thing. MY family did not even had any idea about this but PK’s Mom assumed that my Mom has complained!! Unnecessarily my Mom was dragged in this situation. I won’t go in deep but PK again proved that my Mom was innocent & his Mom has created all the drama because of her “ASSUMPTIONS”
So then, PK only had 4 days in hand before he leaves for Oz. We both were waiting for my visa so that we can return together. I really did not want to stay their alone after wedding. We did postponed PK’s flights for couple of days to see if we are granted visa but it did not happened. The day came when PK had to leave me & return to Oz to join his work. He has already taken 6 weeks off during engagement, 3 weeks for wedding, his boss was threatening him.
By this time I have already known MILs nature & I did not want to stay with her & I knew that I will not be allowed to go to my Mom’s place after PK leaves. In all this tension, just a day before PK’s flight I felt sick, sick means really sick. Fever, shivering & mentally disturbed. Went to the doctor with PK, where MIL also joined us. Whole night we spent hugging each other & crying. That was the night when PK built trust in our relation ship, I promised him that whatever will happen with me from MIL’s side I will tell him without thinking that she is his Mom. Next day, we all went to Airport to drop PK. Believe me it was very difficult time for me. In-laws are so narrow-minded that we were not even able to hug each other last time before PK flies.
PK left & we all returned home. That night MIL slept with me. She kept looking at me while sleeping, I was so scared. Whenever I opened my eyes, I could see MIL staring at me & all things in my bedroom. Next morning when I woke up, MIL herself made Bournvita for me, I saw the sofa next to me was vacant, there wasn’t PK’s mug of tea next to my mug and tears started rolling out from my eyes. BIL went to the kitchen to call MIL to say that I was crying.
Second day I was bit OK since I could at least speak to PK. He was also feeling lonely there. PK called our visa officer daily & here I called visa officer daily. When she said it will take 4 weeks more, I cried on phone & told her lie that my family is now not happy with PK & they are thinking PK will never take me with him & all that.
Everyday there was some or other taunt from MIL, sometimes she said “You are lucky within 6 months of engagement you are going to Oz & here we are waiting since 7 years” Sometimes she said “Our relatives are saying that we should at least keep you here for a year, to get benefits of having a DIL, later you can live with PK for whole life” Once she heard me talking to my Dad, my Dad was asking to buy me something & I said NO to him which MIL heard. She did not liked why I said no, she wanted to rip off my dad.. really!! All three meals of day were cooked by me with doing all cleaning in morning – see, “benefits of having DIL!!” I have written more about these things here.
So, final part later friends??? 🙂 🙂
