I always believed that the only fundamental condition of getting married is to find an ideal person and this condition leaves no doubt.
The story of our life as a couple started from the time that I went to a business trip with a group of photographers and that’s when I met Nazanin. After that trip, our relationship continued because of our common interest in photography. And that common interest, I got to learn more and more about her.
As time passed by, my love unconsciously grew stronger for Nazanin and I had this entanglement feeling about weather I tel her how I feel about her or not until one day I made my decision to tell her the feelings I had for her.
I read somewhere that marrying your best friend is the greatest thing that can happen to a man. And I feel that is the best description of our relationship.
Like all the other girls, I had daydreamed about my future companion and pictured his appearance and all the little details of his personality in my mind.
Mahmoud was a new member of our photography class.
After Mahmoud and I got to know each other, I felt comfortable with him as if he is one of my old friends because of all our characteristic similarities. The times when I looked at him I saw myself and sometimes we where two totally different people.That made me to never feel sure about my feelings for him until the day that he told me he had feelings for me.
Marriage is a sacred bond that occurs between men and women during traditions and costumes which differ in different types of religious and cultures in order to create a family. The people of Iran also this precept with their own special culture.
