S02/EP19 - Carolyn & Telwin, About Arranged Marriages And Stereotypes

Meet Carolyn (American) and Telwin (Indian)

Carolyn and Telwin met through a dating app. In fact, it wasn't supposed to come to a match at all. Telwin was looking for a serious relationship and was specifically looking for a partner for life with an Indian background [03:18]. Nevertheless, the paths of the two crossed and their relationship initially started as a friendship. However, this friendship quickly turned into a serious relationship, which lead into a marriage just eight months later [50:28].

Listen to why they had to keep the relationship as a secret for a while and with which stereotypes they had to deal with. Carolyn and Telwin talk about arranged marriages and share their first-hand experiences [23:17]. They tell us how a small misunderstanding just before the wedding led to a scandal. From the start of their relationship they had to clarify what they expect from each other and where they stand as a couple. 

If you'd like to know more about their story, make sure to check out their YouTube-Channel or connect with them directly.
