The Perfect Arrangement

“Coffee with Companions” is an original series by MAKKER that captures personal stories shared over a cup of coffee. Today, we brew a decaf and an extra dark with milk and learn more about a perfect arrangement...

“We had an arranged marriage. I met his aunt for an hour, then his mom for another hour, and only got to meet him for 15 minutes. We didn’t even speak to each other those 15 minutes, it was only our families talking. The next time we saw each other was on our wedding day 23 days later.”

“How do you know you’re meant to be together?”

“Oh, that I know for sure. Before I got married, I prayed and felt as though God showed me this is the man I should marry.”

“You know how I know it’s meant to be? She's the only person who can sleep through my snoring!”
