Those sessions were very insightful into what married life is like. I would recommend it to anyone who is thinking of embarking on the journey of marriage,” she said.
On their families, Nandi says she feels lucky that her parents love her husband and treats him like their own son. “My mom and dad are obsessed with my husband.
