May there be more men and women who refuse to be in sham marriages and choose to live their lives with courage and pride.

 

Arranged marriage doesn’t make much sense. Men marrying women they barely know is a pretty daft idea.

It makes even less sense if you are gay. Simple logic would suggest saying “no” when asked. But I, as many British Indian men, felt I had no other option but to go ahead with it. I replied “yes” instantly.
