Who knows better than TV characters that marriages aren’t exactly perfect. Every walk down the aisle, every phera around the fire or every qubool hai may not necessarily be a ‘happily’ ever after. With the many tussles and clashes, couples are considering contract marriages instead… the one that comes with an expiry date!
Contract marriage is the latest fad that has hit the matrimonial scene and is soon catching up amongst the masses. For the present age couple, marriage may be on the cards, but conditions apply!
We got some TV characters to give us their take on ‘Contract Marriage’.
Here’s what they had to say –
Angoori Bhabhi (Shubhangi Atre Poorey) from Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hai
If I was given the chance to get into a contract marriage, I would like to do so with the heartthrob of Bollywood, Salman Khan. The key clause that I will incorporate in my marriage agreement will be that Salman Khan needs to take me on bicycle ride twice a week (laughs).
Mannu (Farnaz Shetty) from Waaris
I would definitely love to explore the concept of Contract Marriage. If I get a chance, I would like to get into a contract marriage with the Hollywood sensation, Al Pacino. The clause that in my marriage will be – love me like I do.
Sindoora Mittal (Tasneem Sheikh) from Ek Vivaah Aisa Bhi
I personally find contract marriage a very interesting concept. In my life, I would like to go for a contract marriage with the king of romance, Shahrukh Khan. My clause in the contract will be that at whatever age our contract marriage ends, he needs to give me that much percent of his money as alimony.
Amba (Aarti Singh) from Waaris
Being a firm believer of marriage as a sacred bond, I am not too comfortable with the concept of Contract marriage. If you ask me who I would like to get married to, it would have to be Salman Khan… without any contract as I am sure we’ll be happily married (Laughs). However, hypothetically speaking, if given a chance, I would be interested in getting into a contract marriage with the owner of Gucci or Versace and my clause with them would be to get the first stock of their products and then put them on sale.
Anita Bhabhi (Saumya Tandon) from Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hai
I don’t believe in conditional relationships so contract marriage is completely out of question. Marriage is only a legal paper if it doesn’t have love or commitment, it has no value. Marriage with agenda is a bad idea. To fulfill any objective or reason or agenda I will never marry. I am of the other extreme, I feel there is no need of marriage unless one has found someone they want to spend their life with. Just for fun sake hypothetically, I could marry…umm naa… not marry, but maybe hook up with the young Clint Eastwood. He is great actor-director and producer and would make him cast me as the leading lady in the film he directs.
Jagan (Akshay Dogra) from Waaris
I am a happily married man but if hypothetically speaking if I had to get into a contract marriage with someone I would choose Scarlett Johannson as she is my favorite actress from Hollywood and I loved her acting in Avengers. And my clause in the contract would include her to wear her Avenger costume whenever we go out (Laughs).
