I offered some direct support to the OP from this thread:
I get asked a lot of questions about being married into a fairly strict Sikh family so wanted to open up the floor to Reddit.
- Married almost 10 years
- Got married in a turban
- Three kids
- I got punched a few times by the uncles
- Her father abandoned his family because of the marriage
- Mother-in-law now lives with me (which is a big deal if you're familiar with the culture)
- Everything turned out better than expected
I can't provide proof without identifying myself so you'll have to take my word for it. I've submitted proof to the #IAMA mods. Hopefully I'll get confirmed soon.THANKS MODS!
Just for LOLs: Pic of me in a Turban at my wedding.
Edit @ 10:30pm PST: I'm going to bed soon. Thanks again for all the great questions...
