To my beautiful 'you know who',
 
I know you are somewhere out there. I am going to stop running around everyone else hoping it is you. I failed imagining you, being the perfect one in every shape. The truth is, I don’t want to know how you look. Letting life surprise me, instead. I am going to let you read this someday and I swear, I mean every single word I write here. I read this beautiful book which had this line in it and it drove me crazy.
 
“A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.”
 
I owe you an apology. I have been cheating on you. Not that I deliberately wanted to; nor that I tried replacing you. The fact that I realised it late; if you had thought, your man will be pure on the inside too, I am sorry. If you had held on to just me in your heart ever since you planned your imaginary wedding on your 16th birthday, I am sorry too. I failed you again. If I only knew, it will be you who I’d be bounded together forever with. This last time, I cut my hand on a knife, not intentionally, but I guess it’s alright. I know you were mad at me for wishing every other good looking girl on Instagram to be you. I know you were mad at me for staying up that late, I was only hoping you would stop me while I was scrolling past you. If everyone of us started asking this question to ourselves, I think we will see changes. “Will I accept my other half if she is exactly as what I am right now?” or “Will I let my daughter date someone like me?” So, this is the whole point of me writing this letter to you.
 
A marriage is necessary. Everyone of us needs a companion. To walk, talk, eat, smile and laugh together. You know what excites me the most? I am going to find a best friend in you, a mentor and a lover too. You will lift me when I fall and you wont leave me when I fail. I believe. My friends said that the soon to come is lucky because I made the best tea the other day. My mom said I’d be a good father because I taught my nephew how to count up to ten. I don’t know by how far they are true but I smiled. Honestly, I thought of you. Not your face, not your figure but your existence in the thoughts.
 
 I see people who work hard. Earning beyond their ability. To spend on a wedding. Not theirs, but their sister's. I heard that it is because the men demand for such. I am sorry but when will you start earning for yourself? He said he wont yet. Because whatever he spends now will be given back to him when he gets married. When did marriages become businesses?
 
The men should pay, in my opinion. To let her know you are capable. To assure the girl that you can take care of her if not for the rest of her life then yours. I think it is a nice gesture. So my future, you tell me with what I can assure you. I will work for it. And then, we are not spending millions on the wedding day. We are going to have our big day for us to remember. Not to please every single person that wont even whole heartedly wish us a happy life. It is going to be the beginning of our new chapter. The first impression matters right? How big are we going to start to let others know how small our minds are?
 
“Let’s not have a fancy expensive marriage. Instead, let’s save up for Umrah” - Someone
 
I will like your unfiltered black coffee. I wont hate it because you forgot the dregs in there. It is okay if my favourite shirt is still in the dryer, I can wear the grey one today. It is totally fine if you want to watch your TV series during the match day. I will be in the room if you need me. I can smile for your selfies and stay still for the Snapchat filters. I wont ever blame you if we get late to the party. And I can be comfortable when you introduce me to your friends and family. I am not going to disappoint you. Oh and by the way, I love the colour you chose for the room. I believe that only through compromises you can win anything. Seems like your heart is the only thing I want to be winning.
 
I will notice when you wear the dress I bought you this holiday. I will tell you how good my selections are, and how you are not an exception either. I don’t care if last Ramadan’s clothes wont fit you anymore. Are we ordering pizza for dinner? I am sorry if the table lamp disturbs you, one last chapter and I will switch it off. I will accept your relationship request on Facebook, of course we should be married everywhere. And I will definitely leave the toilet seat down.
 
“There are countless women who have never been their husband's girlfriend.”
 
If you have had an expectation for this married life, I will try to go higher than that. If I fail, I will keep on trying. Once, my mom yelled at me for not making up my bed. She said you’d kick me out someday. From that day onwards, I never forget to make my bed up. I am not jealous because you adore Cristiano Ronaldo. I used to like Ellen Page the same way. I guess we are equal on that one. It’s fine if you don’t want to miss out on your favourite song. I got the coffee under control. I promise you to love you the same way you expected your husband to be so. There’s nothing much I’ve got to ask in return from you.
 
I bet my parents will be your very own. My siblings and their families too. They are amazing people. Just like yours. I am hoping, with us getting together, we will bind our families in one. That way no one has reasons to put you down. Be the best, you always are.
 
 And I am sorry for yelling. I don’t mean to.
 
Yours forever…
