"It'll happen when you least expect it."
"When you meet the right person, you'll know."
Two of the eyeroll-inducing cliches most frequently emitted by the well-meaning and happily married.
But what are cliches except truth wrapped in overfamiliar phases.
I wasn't expecting it, then I met him and I knew.
That was in September and we got married last month, Alhamdulilah.
We sat side by side on the floor of the mosque. Recited our vows. The simple words that change everything. What was written, cannot be erased.
The air was heavy with the weight of the future. In this life and the next.
