There’s no perfect formula to a happy marriage, it’s different for everyone and takes time and patience to make it work.
In an attempt to build mutual understanding, an old tradition from Chitral saw the light of the internet as a couple’s video went viral:
An old but beautiful tradition in a village of #Chitral where the bride is asked to make a "Roti" on their wedding day & the groom helps her. This way, their marital life begins with mutal cooperation & love! 😊 pic.twitter.com/vodtxNlXVq

People were quoting other traditions from Chitral:
There’s also the old Chitrali custom when two people are sharing food for one to grab one side of a roti and the other to pull from the other side so as to take half of it.
It is said to increase love amongst family members. https://t.co/KECscV2py6

People also elaborated on how this was not a normal wheat roti and how flipping it perfectly is difficult:
Ya all must know that its not wheat roti, usually its made of 3 types of grains, so flipping it can break it. Thats why appreciation followed when groom successfully flipped. https://t.co/Mad5lViVZ1

Thank God I don't come from Chitral else I would have failed terribly at making roti and my husband would have disowned me then and there. Phew!
