The other day we were talking about marriages in q8. Particularly about couples moving into a wing, apartment, or a floor at the in laws residence… when a matter i found confusing arose…
Many Q8ys build apartments in their houses for their sons to move in when they get married especially considering the current state of exaggerated rental rates in the country. Nothing strange there.
What’s strange though is that when a woman decides to start looking for a bride or actually finds a bride, she decides that preparations for his sons marriage includes furnishing the whole apartment with her own taste and all he has to do is marry a woman, bring her to live in his already furnished apartment and expects her to live with him happily ever after!
I was aghast at the idea. Starting my life in a bedroom and a living room that i didn’t get to choose? That his mother chose for me?! Why?! For gods sake the apartment is theirs but it should be furnished according to MY TASTE as i am the one going to live there!
People once chewed a girl for insisting on refurnishing the apartment according to her taste. I thought she was right in her move and that the mother in law was being inconsiderate & selfish getting angry at her daughter in law yet others thought i was deluded?! That furnishing the apartment was a great and very generous thing to do and the wife should have been grateful!!!! Another girl i know thinks who cares? It’s not i will live there forever let the mother in law furnish it as she pleases… i am confused here… am i the only one who thinks it’s the wive’s absolute right in furnishing her apartment according to her taste? Not the kitchen or the bathroom per say but at LEAST the bedroom?! Especially considering the 90% of Q8y ladies think that Louis XIV style furniture is the way to go while i strictly hate that style and prefer modern?!
My late mother in law heard i was saving for a Kenwood Major system so she bought me a mixer system in another brand that was fine but i couldn’t keep it for one second in my kitchen and i exchanged it and paid extra for the Kenwood Major i wanted… and that was just a mixer!!! How can anyone live in a furnished apartment and stay there happily when they get married is beyond me…
Would you stay in an apartment at your in laws furnished entirely according to your mother in law taste!? How so?!
