    I Asked Sania Mirza To Convince My Parents To Stop Telling Me To Get Married

    You gotta do what you gotta do.

    I am a 23-year old woman and my folks think that it is time for me to settle down. You know get married, have kids, the works.

    Despite me telling them that I don't want to get married just yet, my parents constantly try to persuade me to change my mind. And bring it up at every possible occasion.

    Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against the institution. But I just believe that "settling down" doesn't just have to mean marriage or motherhood, it can also mean having a fulfilling and rewarding career.

    Guess who thinks along the same lines as me. THIS champ.

    ^ That's what Sania Mirza said when she was asked questions about "settling down" and motherhood in an interview.

    So, when I got the opportunity to interview Mirza I had to ask for her help to convince my parents to stop pushing me to "settle down".
