My first date, with mom!

Yesterday, my cousin went on his first date. Not surprising, though he is 27. The surprising part is he took his mom along. Hold on, you're yet to hear the worst part - the girl he was dating brought her mom along too! Upon meeting, the two of them exchanged solemn vows that they liked each other, and that they would end up marrying each other. And then went out on the date. Hmmm...

And I always thought you first went out with someone, and after sometime - when the guy thought that he was spending too much - he would pull out the wedding ring.

There are some advantages of being a Tam-Brahm. But there are quite a few perils too, identity ideological crisis being one of them!

The 27 appeared as 23 to my eyes.

Are you talking about a betrothal as a date?? funny :))
Anyhow, we hear of such arranged marriages at one end and also of extreme 'unofficially" arranged marriages at the other end...
and, regarding identity crisis, why don't yu rant about that in detail? I didn't quiet get the small picture, though I got the big picture :)
