Marriage brings a big change in every body's life. Especially for girls who have to move to a new home leaving their family and old life behind. Though adjusting with new people, new home and new surroundings looks difficult in the beginning but as time passes on we get used to our new family and start living happily with renewed energy and enthusiasm.

My story is no different. I was born and brought up in a city in a family where both my Ammi and Abbu brought me and my brother up with lots of love, care and happiness. As parents they always ensured that we got good values, education and correct upbringing. They were always there by our side and would correct us when we went wrong. My parents also gave me the freedom to pursue college education in addition to religious education and also encouraged me to start this blog. I always felt lucky and thankful to Allah for being born in such a loving and understanding family. 

Hence I was very apprehensive as to how I would live away from my parents and brother post marriage. Thinking about a new place, new home and new people gave me goose bumps and I used to wonder whether I would be able to live as happily as I used to be at home before marriage. And with marriage comes responsibility and I was wondering how I would handle it. 

But life changes and changes for the better. Shifting from a city to a town after marriage looked difficult in the beginning as I was used to the hustle and bustle of city life with its umpteen shops and buildings. But the calm atmosphere, big house, pollution free air and back garden attracted me towards the town and new home.

And the inmates of my new home - My husband, mother-in-law and father-in-law accepted me with open arms and gave me love, care and respect. Right from the beginning my husband treated me as a friend and filled my life with lots of love and happiness. He gave a new dimension and meaning to my life and encouraged me to do what I liked. My father in law and mother in law are just like my Abbu and Ammi to me and with them I always feel happy and secure just like I used to be at home.

It is due to the love, care and support of my husband and in laws that I was able to adjust in my new home and consider it as my own. I am grateful to Allah for giving such a wonderful family to me. I hope that I would be a good daughter, sister, wife, and daughter-in-law and mother and bring a good name to both my families.
