What do you consider to be your best quality?

That I have a very optimistic outlook on everything.

What does it take for a marriage to work?

Communication and empathy.

What would be your commitment to your better half?

I will always share a piece of my cake with you, always.

If you could change any norms of marriage what would you change?

I feel kanyadaan is an awful ritual in marriage. This truly feels like parents are ‘donating’ their daughter to others. I would definitely omit that from the list.

Wedding attire
Anything I am comfortable in

Not a big fan of heavy makeup, so something light and natural.
