Mind-boggling. When I saw your marriage photos at that time I was thinking about how late you're, and now I have my ideal situation for marriage ๐Ÿคญ. I'm 25 right now and was thinking what if I didn't succeed till my 20s end? but you changed my mind about Marriage life.

Also very insightful information about entrepreneurship journey. Thank you.

Don't get married till 35, or never get married at all. It's a trap. Focus on your career and make the best use of your life :)

I absolutely agree with you that it's a trap. I got married at age of 33 yrs and 6 yrs later had to divorce as she was extremely dominating. In 6 yrs I don't remember I gained any knowledge which I was always ambitious about. I was an avid reader of tech mags Digit and EFY, coding etc but the day I got married, brain activity poofed off. After separation I collected myself and reembarked on gaining knowledge and to started with earnings through stock market. Earlier minimalism was missing & now I wonder why was I buying double of everything. Relationship is just a part of life but not the whole life. It's a gamble to get the right partner who can turn out to be a catalyst in your life to create a win win for both.

Marriage is a legal agreement to make sure the guy doesn't leave even if the women makes the situation difficult for him, which every women will. There is a cost added to the separation legally to discourage it. None of these women will be able to retain their man by themselves - and if they have to do it, they have to behave differently. That's why you see a very nice behaviour from a girl friend and a completely different behaviour once she becomes a wife. Marriage is a losing proposition for men.

Only after the year of divorce was I able to join your Digital Marketing Course Batch 4 and I got the certificate of excellence in it ๐Ÿ˜Ž and moreover got all the fees paid back. I wouldn't have thought of any course without the much needed separation.

So very true. Everything in this ever changing world is uncertain. However, one must remember that bad times, good times, all times do come and go. Just expect the worst, prepare for the uncertain and hope for the best. That's my take. Good write-up Deepak sir. Thanks for the reality surfing.

This article just popped in my time line exactly at a point where I am thinking of building my very first startup and the same fear of failure, how and where to start has literally sunk into me because I am married and a father of 2 daughters (1 Yr and 5 yr old) and this leap of faith seems to be too much. This beautiful article just gave me a ray of confidence that it's okay to fail.
