Overview: Just Married

Just Married, Please Excuse is an ideal book for all those who want a breezy read which will tickle their funny bones. The book is written by Yashodhara Lal who graduated from Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore in the year 2002. She has worked in the corporate world for more than a decade and was involved with the FMGC industry as well as the media. She presently resides in Gurgaon with Vijay, her husband and three kids. She and her husband lovingly refer to the kids as Papad, Pickle and Peanut. Yashodhara started her journey as a writer with blogging. She stated that her blog was an attempt at taking life a little less seriously. Just Married, Please Excuse is her first book. The book was published on 1st July, 2012 by Harper Collins Publishers India.

The book traces the journey of a modern, young couple. One of the protagonists of the book is Yashodhara, the author's namesake, who is from a big city and is known for her short temper. She is married to Vijay, the other protagonist of the book. Vijay, who hails from a small town in India, is lazy and laid back. When these two people, who are as different as chalk and cheese, get married to each other, all hell breaks loose. The marriage obviously has trouble written all over it. The story revolves around how Yashodhara and Vijay learn to adjust and live with each other. It is about how Vijay tackles his wife's temper and tantrums while Yashodhara leans to deal with Vijay's habit of proverbially putting his foot in his mouth. Other characters of the book include Yashodhara and Vijay's domestic helps Vinod and Zareena, both of whom have their respective idiosyncrasies, and their friend Vivi, who is nutty and zany. Members of Yashodhara and Vijay's respective families also join the fray.

The story takes a turn when the couple has to deal with an unexpected pregnancy. Arrival of their daughter Anoushka, who is also known as Peanut, adds to the mad frenzy and the battle between the couple escalates. Yashodahra and Vijay have different views and ideas on how to raise a kid and this leads a several arguments between the two. The differences between Yashodhara and Vijay seemed endearing to others at first but do these differences actually mean that they are incompatible and better off on their own rather than together? Have they bitten off more than either of them can chew? Will they agree on one, small thing ever? To know the answers to these questions, you will have to read the book.

  1.  A Must Read!! 25 January, 2013 On
    When I saw the the following on the cover page of this book…
    Just Married, Please Excuse
    Opposites Attract – Trouble
    Caution! Marriage Ahead!

    ...I knew that I had to read this book immediately to know the reasons, explanations, logics and mystery behind all these ‘profound’ statements!

    I started reading this book in the afternoon and with a couple of work breaks, finished the book by midnight! And, boy! at the end of it, I had this happy smile plastered all over my face. Just Married, Please excuse is a hilarious account of Yashodhara and Vijay’s life which I could relate to my married life on many occasions.

    The couple has different styles of shopping, different thoughts on bringing up a child, different eating habits (the wife is non-vegetarian while the husband eats only chicken nuggets with beer and eggs for breakfast), different upbringing (one coming from a modern family and the other one from a traditional one)… And with so many differences between them, do the opposites still attract? No! they attack!! The incidents depicting all these are narrated in details which are fun to read and also I couldn't help nodding my head in agreement with their arguments and counter arguments, emotions and outbursts as they sounded very familiar.

    The book has a lot of hilarious moments… like the Yashodhara-Reema and Vijay-Reema episode with the counsellor or the Tsunami incident or their understanding of the five point two lakh vis-a-vis fifty two lakhs as the price for the land… however one incident which I found a bit difficult to digest was when Y (yeah, that’s how she is called by the husband ‘V’!) is looking for ‘sticky stuff we make rotis with’! I mean, it’s understandable that Y is not domestically inclined and has never cooked but not knowing that you have to make dough from the flour and you don't get it ready made (at least in the present times) is hard to believe!

    A statement from Yashodhara’s mother in law, “ Ladne ki kya baat hain? Arrey, kabhi main maan jaati hoon, kabhi wo maan jaate hain” is so simple and profound which should be applied by every married couple! It sure is a wonderful take-away from this book.

    The book is written in the ‘way you talk’ style and use of Hinglish language makes it an interesting and enjoyable read.

    The book is a must read, if you are…
