17 And Engaged.

Alright so, as you all might have noticed that I have been gone for a very long time. And even if you didn’t notice, that’s totally cool.

I had a reason and you know it because you have read the title πŸ˜‚.

I got engaged on 23rd July (such a weird and odd date)Β πŸ˜‚

I know that being engaged at 17 isn’t a big deal because girls here getting pregnant at 16 so yeah not a big deal.

It wasn’t my boyfriend who proposed me and we got engaged. Neither was it my best friend who out of a bloom decided to propose. Nope.

It was a guy I didn’t even know existed until his family sent the proposal.

Most of you are like umm what ? But my brown girlfriends will know what I am talking about.

In our culture, relationships aren’t allowed.

Proposal is sent from the guy’s family and its up to the girl’s family to either accept it or reject it.

The girl does have a say in whether she would like to marry this particular guy or not. And same goes for the guy.

Most people out there think that muslim girls are forced to marry whoever their family chooses for her. But that is not true because our religion gives us a right to accept or reject the proposal.

But there are people out there who force their daughters and they are eitherΒ illiterate or educated yet ignorant.

Well, I aint here to talk about others. I am here to talk about me.

Yes I got engaged and boi the amount of emotions I have been through the past few months has been crazy and probably not everybody would wanna know about it πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.

But if you do wanna know about the whole thing, comment down below and I might just write a huge ass post discussing every damn thing that happened in the past few months.

That is it for now, byeee xoxo…

    Congratulations! πŸ˜±πŸ’—πŸ’—
    I totally get what you mean and I think it’s acceptable as long as at the end of the day, the decision is made taking in to consideration the girls approval. But wow, such a young age, I really wanna how it has affected your life, all the positives and the negatives, looking forward to your post! πŸ’—πŸ’—
