Of course I knew him well enough – hadn’t we discussed where we’d live (Colaba), what we’d eat (home cooked food, with lots of restaurant nights off), even how many children we’d have (exactly one – we had to create our very own trinity, after all)? Besides didn’t millions of couples enter unions arranged by their parents, knowing each other even less?
